Summary: I absolutely love this tough little beast. I have a personal love of bugs and spiders (well actually all animals and plants) and I am kinda clumsy, so between the macro ability, being shock proof, and taking it in the ocean in the VI for a few weeks, this thing never quite.

Summary: Fantastic camera. Maybe not the very best photos but so much easier to carry wherever I go that it is there when I need it. Great underwater photos and video with sound. Good battery life and easy to understand and choose the different operating modes in the menu.
Summary: I bought the Pentax Pentax Optio WG-2 Digital Camera 2 years ago and since then I have not been let down!! I have taken this camera all the way from the beaches in California to spelunking expeditions and it has done very well under all circumstances.
Summary: Shock proof, waterproof, easy to use system to change camera modes...I love it. This is my second Pentax Optio, I had the original for almost 8 years! There is a good reason why I stuck with this model

Summary: I have gone through several cameras on my hiking and backpacking trips totally destroying them by getting them wet, dropping them, and having something dropped on them. Well, this camera was the exception!
Pros: Lots of good shooting features, Able to take abuse
Cons: You have to charge the battery external to the camera
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.
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.
