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. It has a wide range of settings and can be used under water! I have never had any problems with it or had any excuse to get a new one.
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.
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.
