Pentax Optio WG-2 16MP Black Digital Camera with 32GB Bundle
27 February 2014
Summary: We bought this camera to use at the beach, but it has become the first camera we reach for when going out for the day! It can take abuse of being in your pack and getting banged around and it will start up in a hurry to snap that passing scene! The resolution is great and the digital and optical zooms provide exceptional choices for awesome shots in the water or on land! Our friends have an underwater camera (blue body) and envy ours now!!!
Summary: I opened it and took it camping to rivers and waterfalls, and so far its wonderful. However, Reading the manual I discovered that rubber seals must be changed every year, I wish I had known that before.
Summary: Needed a water proof camera for vacation this year for some snorkeling. Discovered it has a ton of other functionality! This thing takes excellent night time photos, excellent movies, and I am simply amazed by the macro mode! I was taking some macro mode pictures of flowers, and noticed some ants crawling around the flower petals. I zoomed in to 5x (optical limit on mine), and began snapping photo's. I was using a mono-pod, so camera shake was not an issue.
Summary: Have used it wet and dry. Clear movies and stills underwater and on land. Auto settings works pretty well for me, an unseasoned amateur. Low light settings are not too grainy. All of the different features are really fun to play with and easy to use. Works great to image hummingbirds in our yard. I bought it thinking I would buy the remote, but did not as it is disposable and the remote has to be thrown out when batteries die.
