Summary: Bought this as a gift for my daughter to travel with. This daughter is rough on stuff but the camera came back in one piece and her pictures were just beautiful. I would highly recommend this camera for anyone doing a lot of traveling --moving around etc. in places where cameras can get "hurt". The waterproof feature is also excellent!
Summary: THOU FAR IT IS MEETING MY EXPECTATION. HOWEVER, I HAVE NOT GOTTEN DOWN TO THE FINER THINGS IT CAN PROVIDE. READING MANUAL FREQEUNTLY TO UNDERSTAND THE OPTIONS. I WAS SHOWN CAMERA BY AN INSPECTOR WHO USED IT AND WAS VERY SATISFIED WITH ITS PERFORMANCE. I AM SURE CAMERA WILL PROVIDE SERVICE IT WAS PURCHASED.
Built to take a beating, and takes great photos a& videos! Worth the money!

Summary: This is my second Pentax Optio WG. I purchased my original WG-90 for a trip to Puerto Rico, and love it. When I saw the chance to pick up another, I jumped on it. Takes great pictures in the water, under the water & out of the water. Survived an 8 mile hike thru the rain forest, repelling down a waterfall, and zip-lining. Takes great video too!
Summary: I bought this to take on vacation, and expected to get some good shots while snorkeling in the ocean. I had it in the water for 15 seconds before it went dead. I beg you to avoid this camera at all costs, spend a few more dollars and get a better camera from a better manufacturer.
Summary: This camera was a replacement to my Kodak which rusted itself out. The Pentax is solid and has a better grip. One thing I would recommend is to wash the camera with regular water once you are done with the underwater shots. This will clear out the salinity that usually causes rust.
Summary: I had my doubts about this camera ... it just doesn't seem like it can do the job, but I was wrong. It was amazing for its size and price. I brought it to Kauai during rainy season and it was great for hikes in monsoon rains, I took it underwater for fish and tidepool shots. But where it really shined was macro shots with its strobe flash. Great results! Good movies too. However it's not that great on powder days up in the mountains.
Summary: Bought it for a trip to Kauai because I needed something for the beach. It put up with everything. I kept in in my swim trunks pocket the whole time. Swimming, snorkeling, just sitting in the sand with my daughter while my pockets filled with sand. Pool, ocean, water slides it handled it all perfectly fine. It's slow but that's what you get at this price point. It took great underwater pictures and videos and the super macro mode is pretty cool.
Summary: We bought this camera for our 6 yr old grandson for Christmas. The camera is water-proof, shock-proof and dust-proof. The functions are super easy to use and 9 out of 10 pics are great. Using inside without flash (with a shaking hand) may be a little blurred, but overall I gave it a top notch favorite gift. The Video mode is an added plus too. Two thumbs Up !!
Summary: I received this camera as a Christmas present. It is amazing. It takes amazing clear pictures. By far the best camera I have ever owned. I recommend this camera to anyone that goes in the water a lot. I love this camera.
