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.

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.

Poor Picture Quality

Farah Ysvette Mourad Vera, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: Picture quality is terrible: grainy (not good grainy) and flat outside the water, murky and flat inside the water (I was at the Dry Tortugas, and my friend's little Nikon took MUCH clearer pictures, so it wasn't the water), which pretty much made me kick myself for not buying a disposable underwater...

Do not buy this gimmick camera/TOY

damo, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: This brand new camera gets stuck in movie mode 50% of the time. The only way you can stop it is by opening up the battery compartment and ejecting the battery. What a hassle and not what you want if you are snorkeling at the time.

V. Kasyanov, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: The camera actually worked well when you could see what you were taking a picture of. Underwater shots came out crisp and clear.
