Excerpt: I use this camera while we construct loghomes and sauna's. (www.whitehorse.be) As we always work outside with chainsaws an oil, i needed a camera that would match my pocket and was easy to shoot with and wash it clean. For my job, it needed to be waterproof and shockproof also. I really love it. I remember the times I used my LX3 and had to put it every time back in the box to keep it dry. A very nice feature is that you can can set timelapse.
Excerpt: A friend let me use his Optio WG-1 on a trip to the Caribbean. It takes fantastic underwater pictures and is virtually indestructible. I am hard on cameras and this one seems to be able to take the punishment. I was so impressed with it that I bought one. Excellent resolution, easy to use and rugged.
Summary: Pentax WG-1 Geen GPS 14MP Digital Camera Overall it is a good camera. Picture quality is great for my photos. I have not used it underwater yet. I am still getting used to the menu options. They are more complex than my Pentax k110. The GPS feature is nice but does take awhile to find itself. Battery life is OK but if you plan on using the GPS, have a spare battery.
Summary: Pentax WG-1 Geen GPS 14MP Digital Camera I had a cannon water proof camera and that got lost at sea so i thought that i would try this camera cause it had GPS. well the GPS is for geo tagging. secondly it said that it recorded movies in 720p but if it does actualy record that high, they trun out very grainy (noise). Don't get, go with the Canon water proof camera.
Excerpt: The Pentax is a very out there design. Bought one a few months ago to bring back out with us to Dubai, it has been to both water parks here and it holds up pretty good. Just have to be careful on not catching some of the buttons otherwise you find yourself in a different mode. I had a previos Pentax Optio and it served me 6 years to date hence why we purchased another one. All in all I give it an 8/10.
Summary: Pentax WG-1 Geen GPS 14MP Digital Camera Bundle I bought this one last month at 3 bills, and now it's 250 and the camera case with this one looks better. i wonder if they'll take a trade. takes great shots and video, certainly on par with what you'd expect for a camera in it's class. speaking of class, there really isn't much competition in the point and shoot world with the type of durability that this little pony exhibits.
Summary: Pentax WG-1 Geen GPS 14MP Digital Camera I have this camera for about 3 months, have done some basic shots turns on quickly nice features for a point and shoot. Took this down the Upper Gauley White Water Rafting in WV. Took great shots nice video and even some under water video. I got ejected from the boat and landed on it on a rock got some minor scratches on face but no problems. Definitely will want second or more batteries.
Summary: Pentax WG-1 Geen GPS 14MP Digital Camera I bought this camera primarily for my work (real estate related). It's small and simple to operate in its basic mode. Picture quality is OK but suffers from significant noise in dim lighting conditions. I assume it's rugged based on its specifications, but I have not dropped it or struck it against anything with significant force. The camera has a surprising number of features for such a small package, don't lose the manual!
