It was good when it worked...

  • Summary: I received the camera in late March. The camera takes good pictures (when it works) and has nice features. BUT... 6 months later, it is totally dead - without me ever using it under water, dropping it, or subjecting it to other harsh environments. After not using it for a couple of months, I took it off the shelf and was going to use it on my vacation. Unfortunately it would not power on. At all. The power LED would come on but nothing else.

"Waterproof" Lemon

  • Summary: I purchased this item based on the positive reviews it received. I should have paid more attention to the negative ones. The camera performs well on the beach when dry but after only the 4th time in shallow pacific ocean water I came out and saw that the screen had fogged over. When I opened the battery compartment salt water poured out and the camera was useless.

very poor service

  • Excerpt: after reading others reviews I felt I should update my review. In July I sent the camera back to pentax and in early July I was approved for a replacement. I am still waiting for the replacement. I have called numerous times and they only say the wharehouse is waiting for a stock from the manufacturer. Yet the camera is still being offered for sale.

Takes great photos until the seals fail, or the display cracks

  • Summary: I took this camera on a few hikes in the first week I owned it. The photos were beautiful. The f/2.0 lens is great in low light. Then I took it into a hike that involved swimming and jumping into water. The camera failed catastrophically. Filled with water, and the LEDs started blinking spasmodically. That was it. Thank goodness for Amazon's policies - I returned it for a full refund.
