So far so good

  • 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 have. There are two buttons for lock and open on the battery door.. Maybe some have forgotten to slide the lock button on top of the close button?

Underwater testimonial

Mark Rempel, Amazon
12 July 2014
  • Summary: We researched the underwater cameras quite a bit, and this was the apparent choice. It is only available on line as no dealers work with Pentax any longer. While snorkeling in the carribean, the camera came loose from the strap and sank into the ocean, and there it sat for two hours before we were able to drift back over it and spot the orange color amongst the other colors of coral.

Nice little waterproof camera

  • 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

Luis Gonzalez, Amazon

  • 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
22 April 2014
  • 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

Dan B, Amazon

  • 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.
