Great photos, truly durable with one exception

M. Freidman "Economist", Amazon
3 March 2015
  • Summary: Incredible camera. Outstanding photos. Truly water proof and it has survived the abuse I've put it through rather well. My one and only complaint is the tripod mount. It's cheap plastic and quickly got reamed out.

Cool features like great underwater photos & intervalometer

  • Summary: Cool features like great underwater photos & intervalometer. Short battery life. Buy a second battery if you use the video or take more than 100 pics before next charge.

The camera was fine except for being slow

Eric L., Amazon
31 January 2015
  • Summary: The camera was fine except for being slow. It could take 1 second to react after pressing the shutter button. BUT the Warranty work IS HORRIBLE. My camera failed after 10 month or so of use. I sent it in for repair and it took 5 month for Ricoh, the new owner of Pentax to fix my camera.

  • Summary: Still works great and it is waterproof. Chose this model camera because my brother had one, which he inadvertently left in field jacket that was washed, tumbled dry in dryer, and yes, still functioned perfectly.

BEWARE: It Stopped Working After 7 Months

J&JZ, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: We bought this last May 2014 and it's stopped working December. We took great care of it, washed the salt away, dry it before using again. I am extremely disappointed as I thought this will be a long time companion for us.

Buy the extended warranty

Robert Jansing, Amazon
6 December 2014
  • Summary: So the lesson to be learned here is - buy the extended warranty... I wish I did. The first year of use I had with this camera, I was its biggest fan. I was able to take underwater photos in fresh and salt water (depths no greater than 5 or 6 feet).

So far so good

Elissa, Amazon
22 November 2014
  • Summary: Just got it in the mail, right on time. Took a couple pics and videos to test it out and everything seems clear and of quality as seen in online product reviews. Have not had the chance to test durability, so I will need to post another review if it decides to crap out underwater like some people's...
