Summary: I bought this camera two years ago to replace a Canon Powershot D10 that was lost in a river. It takes decent quality photos and video - video gets mushy if there is anything resembling fast motion however. I've spent a lot of time with it underwater, never leaked, would fog up sometimes, but only for a few minutes. After two years, the LCD screen went dead. For the price I paid, I would have expected it to last longer than this.
Summary: I bought this camera so I can take it pretty much anywhere and not worry about it getting damaged. I take it bike riding and hiking and lots of other activities. This camera is pretty tough and it's great that I don't have to worry about it getting wet or falling into the water. I like it's looks and all the features. It has a good flash for dark and when you need. It also works great in low light without the flash too.
Summary: This camera has been all over the world with me: ice hiking in New Hampshire, snorkeling in St Croix, site-seeing in Israel. It has been great at taking photos and videos of my niece at gymnastics, taking pics of my craft projects, and catching my pets during their various antics. I love the clip and the ruggedness. Its been dropped many times, subjected to salt spray while boating and extreme dust while overseas.
Sent me a used camera that was broken & still had images of the previous user on it!!

Summary: I ordered this camera thinking it was new. It was used though, the screen has scratches all over it and was def not new. I tried to get the battery to work in the camera but the camera itself was defective. It would power on sometimes and other times it would not. When I did mange to get it powered on it had images of the previous user on it, some very nude images of a man and a woman that were not pleasing to look at. I would never order from this seller again.
Worked for 4 days and then stopped. Replacement stopped working after 1 day.

Summary: I purchased this camera for a trip to Hawaii. My wife and I used it both in an out of the water, taking great care to keep it safe. We got some great shots while snorkeling and during a hike to the volcano. On the 4th day of our vacation while we were taking pictures on the beach, the camera LED display went black and stopped working. The camera itself was able to take a couple more shots and then it stopped too.
Summary: Awesome point and shoot camera, especially for those who like to be outdoors. I bought it shortly after I deployed and it's endured multiple missions and the varied temperature and terrain well. I've tested this camera and have done everything with the exception of immersing it in water and it hasn't failed me yet. If you love being outdoors are looking for a small camera to take with you then Pentax Optio WG-2 Digital Camera is a definite must.
Summary: I got this camera because I frequently walk the dog in the rain and snow (in winter), and didn't want to risk my more expensive cameras. I have been very pleasantly surprised! This little camera has an amazing array of fun features. it is not the fastest either to focus or to write to the card. It takes adequate, but not outstanding pictures - BUT it has so many features hidden away in the menus - in addition to being waterproof and incredibly tough.
