I would not recommend buying this camera...

Lisa, Amazon

  • Summary: I would not recommend buying this camera unless you plan on paying Pentax money to keep it water proof. I have had mine less than 2 years and have only used it in or around pools or on the beach for one trip.

Definitely not waterproof! Mediocre picture quality.

Utahn, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera about a year ago primarily as a point-and-shoot but expected some water and rough treatment outdoors. As for picture quality, I would say it is average - even a bit poor for this price range. Over the first year it handled rain, small drops and routine use just fine.

It's a cheap camera.

  • 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.

No underwater honeymoon pictures for me.

S. Cruz, Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera to take on our honeymoon to the Bahamas. I didn't have it in the water more than 10 minutes before it stopped working. The screen turned black and it wouldn't turn off. I took the battery out dried it etc and it wouldn't work. I'm so incredibly disappointed.

Leaked immediately

  • Summary: Bought this for a snorkel trip to Bali. All it took to ruin this camera was to place it in water. I mean the very instant we hit the water the camera screen was shot and water could be seen between the viewfinder and the camera interior.

LEAKED THE FIRST TIME I USED IT- RUINED MY VACATION!

Lost Boys, Amazon
6 August 2013
  • Summary: This camera leaked the very first time I used it and the few photos I managed to take before the lense completely fogged over were of very poor quality. This camera ruined all chances for underwater water photos on my vacation to Mexico, including those of the turtle that swam next to me. BUMMER!

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera from Target 5/21/13. I'm not sure why, but Pentax has chosen them to be the only retailer for this model. I used the camera for kayaking and to carry on my motorcycle. I thought the label 'adventure -proof' would be appropriate.
