Nice little waterproof camera

running duck, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great little take along camera that can handle kayaking, sandy beeches and a little snorkeling. Not exactly point and shoot but if you spend a little time with the camera and enclosed booklet your pictures will turn out pretty darn good. Maybe not professional grade but the options for shooting and scenes are numerious. When set up right, the underwater pics were clear, the landscape scenes were focused perfectly and the action shots had no blur.

Excellent

  • Summary: All features are excellent. The only complaint is that the description of the camera describe the wireless battery charging feature but the box don't come with the charging pad required to charge it that way. So if you want to charge it that way you need to buy the pad separately. Excellent camera.

Got two of them

  • Summary: I love them, they got four stars because the batery self discharges in two or three days, but all the options make it the perfect camera for the outdoors type.

Suits my purpose

Jose Almonte, Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking for a good water proof camera to take pictures while kayaking on the Hudson River. The WG-3 will be just fine for the job. The negatives are that when using the extreme telephoto, the image is not too sharp. The other negative is the whirring sound it makes when using the telephoto in video mode. I have not used it for under water pictures or video yet, but that is not my main use. The previous camera got wet in salt water and fizzed out.

great pocket camera

  • Summary: I was tired of packing my DSLR for hikes and camping - and this camera has filled that void. I'm using it mostly for taking snapshots while on the trail or ski hill. Shockproof and waterproof give you piece of mind. Electronic compass feature and GPS also lighten your load. Picture quality is excellent.

Worked great and took great pictures

T. Jones "Localbuzz", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought 2 of these for our trip to Australia. We used them for our excursion to the Great Barrier Reef and they performed great for our day of snorkeling. No issues with water getting into the camera and we were in the water for 4+ hours. Took lots of photos and video and they all came out great. The only problem we had was that it was hard to see the screen underwater. it was hard to see if you had what you wanted to take a picture of in the frame.

  • Summary: but dont use it for underwater though...as Pentax still really needs to work on sealing the camera under pressure! this is the 3rd one purchased.
