  • Excerpt: I love this camera for what I use it for, a pocket size travel camera. I have taken my Pentax WP to Costa Rica in 06 and Belize this year. It takes great action pictures. The ATM cave pictures from Belize were out of this world. The camera came from ebay at a very low price.

  • Excerpt: Nice camera, waterproof...and aweful. It is a good design, it is attractive, it is easy to use, it has decent battery life, and it really is waterproof. It just doesn't take good pictures.

  • Excerpt: Biggest problem: fogging. I purchased the Pentax Optio WP in Sept. 2005 and have been using it consistently since that time. I'll try to keep this review simple; I was prompted to make it due to what I consider a large flaw.

  • Excerpt: I live in the US Virgin Islands and frequently snorkel. I bought the camera because it looked like a combination of features that would work for me. With reasonable expectations on the part of the user, I would recommend it. It is capable of good underwater photos if.... Mmmm, if.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera for everyday point and shoot use. I though that paying a bit extra for a waterproof body was well worth it since I can think of many wet situations where I wouldn't dare to take a regular camera.

  • Excerpt: I have had this camera for one weekend - it's been on two kayaking trips, one down a frothy river and on a lake, and on a hike through the woods. The Pentax Optio WP digital camera has taken some very nice shots, easily, and has been splashed on.

  • Excerpt: Works well underwater. You can use the flash.. just don't set underwater mode. You do get bubbles appearing if you use flash underwater so its probably best used for effect. Problems: Bright line appeared on the LCD so it had to be fixed.

  • Excerpt: Used it in pool and sea...great pics (of turtles...). But comparing to SONY CYber-shot DSC-P5 (3,2MPx)...the images of Sony are generay better (of course not under water:-) ) WP has too much noise. It is a pity because it has great functions like taking night pics but it has much noise.
