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: 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 purchased this camera for my 12 year old son to travel across Australia. He snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef and an old ship wreck. This past summer he traveled across Europe. It is an AWESOME camera at an AWESOME price! I would highly recommend this camera. The picture quality compares to much more expensive cameras.
Summary: Bought this camera in July for Mud Runs. Has past the test! Completely submerged in water and in Texas Clay, dropped, kicked, tossed about and still takes Beautiful pictures! Really need a tripod for night pics or the image will look blurry do to handler's breathing.
Summary: We went to Destin, FL on vacation, while there, we bought this camera. I have nothing but great things to say about the Pentax...Took great photos, Great focus under water, and NEVER leaked on us!! I recommend this camera, I even used it scuba diving! One thing though, Make sure you buy a silicone lube for the rubber parts, this will help seal it and keep the rubber from cracking.
Summary: Bought this camera for beach and pool because don't like to use a high end camera around water and sand. This camera was amazing and took beautiful pictures above and below water. We have been using for a few months. We have taken pics above and below water salt and choline. Sand and sun no bad effects. Did a little snorkeling in the Dominican and it took amazing shots.
Summary: I left my WG-2 at the beach and picked up a WG-10 to replace it. I accepted that the camera, being lower cost, would have lower resolution on the video. Unfortunately, the camera also failed the waterproof test. I took it in the pool to test out the resolution differences before taking it snorkeling and the camera leaked on the first outing. Poor quality control / inspection and a defective unit.
