  • Summary: On my second trip using the camera, it leaked while snorkeling. After a couple days of drying time, i was fortunate enough to be able to recover all pictures from the SD card but the camera itself is now useless. I rinsed and and carefully cleaned the camera after every saltwater use.

  • Summary: What a terrible product. I have only used the camera on 3 snorkeling trips and it leaked and broke. What a piece of garbage. I was really careful to wash off the camera in fresh water after use in the ocean, and I made sure to check for any sand grains or particles that may compromise the seal...

Warranty is Worthless!!

Gerald B. Bay, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: Unit failed after 11-1/2 months and was under warranty. The Pentax repair facility would not repair it stating that they found corrosion in the camera. By my eyes, I could not see ANY corrosion anywhere. Even if there was, it would have been due to problems with the seal.

Choosing this camera over the Olympus Tough was a stupid mistake on my part

srhare, Amazon

  • Summary: Choosing this camera over the Olympus Tough was a stupid mistake on my part. I don't often write product reviews but my experience with this camera, and the Pentax service rep, has left me steaming mad. First, the good: the camera takes good photos, both above and below water. As it should.

Junk

Catherine Joy, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: At first, I loved this camera - especially the macro/light feature. But after 6-8 mo. of occasional use, it stopped working. Sent it in for warranty service and the lens assembly was replaced and the auto focus was adjusted.
