Decent Camera - but didn't last so long.

Michael G. Burke, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • 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.

Solid camera in testing

  • Summary: I am getting ready to take this on my carribean cruise honeymoon and really give it its testing. I have used it some leading up to the trip to learn it and like it. It does not produce the best indoor pictures as the coloring is a little off but it is not menat to replace my DSLR.

Adequate but that's it

Tlaloc "surfer", Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought to replace my lost Nikon Coolpix AW100 since I wanted to try something different. Picture quality is good only in sunny conditions, in every other situation it takes a very bad dive, night shots have very noticeable grain; shaky pictures in low light are common, ghosty or just plain bad.

  • Excerpt: I've owned and actively used several earlier waterproof Pentax models starting WP. I've been using Pentax WG-2 since April 2012. Conceptually, WP is the type of camera that upfront inspires no great expectations as far as quality of the photos.

rubbish battery life

Matt Watson-Power "DragonDrop", Amazon
23 April 2013
  • Summary: Fantastic camera in every respect and its claims of being adventure proof are true, as long as your adventure doesn't stray too far from a power source. Two hours approx if your shooting a lot.

  • Summary: I cant see a contact seller section so ill put it here. When i ordered the cammera it was £136 but when the order was confirmed it went up to £150 . Dont know why and although in principle im not happy its still cheaper than any where else and thats the only reason im not canceling it.

acerca de la bateria

Claudia, quesabesde.com

  • Summary: La camara es muy buena, pero la bateria no soporta el frio que dicen... a temperaturas de menos de 5 C... no dura mas de 5-10 minutos, y esto es muy mal, pues estar cambiando de bateria en medio del frio es muy incomodo.....

Als "Kamera für alle Fälle" für mich unbrauchbar + Vergleich zu Canon D20

Alexej Muraschov, Amazon
16 August 2012
  • Summary: Ich würde mich selbst als "ambitionierten Amateur" bezeichnen - ich nenne eine Canon EOS 60D und eine 550D mein Eigen und setzte diese auch bevorzugt ein. Meistens fotografiere ich Menschen, insgesondere Kinder und das ganze möglichst spontan - sprich keine gestellten Szenen.
