Summary: PREFACE/BACKGROUND: I previous owned an early predecessor to this camera (the WR33). I * LOVED * it. It took wonderful pictures - quickly. I was very happy with it even though it was sort of homely and had a tiny LCD. After a few years, the WR33 stopped working. I decide to get another newer water resistant Pentax that would be similar. NOW (2007) - THE W30 I bought the W30 a few months ago. Pros: * Big high quality LCD view screen.
Summary: I've had this camera for 6 months now. I like the waterproof aspect since I can take it boating or to the beach and not have to worry. My first battery failed within a week of getting the camera and it was a hassle getting a replacement battery from the company. But, I think it just doesn't take very good pictures. At least 25% of the pictures I took on vacation this summer turned out blurry or out of focus, no matter what setting I put it on.
OK Camera: Good Features but Non-Perfect Waterproof Design/Workmanship : Water enters LCD

Summary: Somebody else has also experienced this problem, i read that in review. But i ignored and bought it. When I tested in merely 1 or 2 feet of water.. that's it .. Water was there in between Camera LCD and the transparent hard plastic over that LCD. I thought it would evaporate or drain out but after 2 days it was still like that!! Otherwise camera is good with pretty good features & pictures. Bad quality with low light/ night pictures.
Screen retains water - can't see what picture you are taking

Summary: I just got the camera 5 days ago and have used it on 2 different water occasions. Water gets behind the protection around the LCD screen so that you can't see what you are taking pictures of and view the pictures already taken. My camera has been out of the water for 12 hours now and water is still "behind" the screen. I don't know if mine is defective. I'm going to contact Pentax.
Conclusion: Batterilivslängd: 2 Bildkvalitet: 2 Hållbarhet: 3
Det är ingen kamera jag skulle rekommendera att köpa.Endast praktiskt att den är vattentät vilket gör den lämpad att ha med på jobbet som är en båt. Har en Olympus Mju 700 som tar otroligt mycket bättre bilder.
Pros: Vattentät och smidig
Cons: Tar rätt dåliga bilder. Suddiga och tråkiga färger.Jobbiga menyer
