5.0 out of 5 stars Great Underwater Digital Camera, May 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pentax Optio WG-2 Digital Camera, Vermillion Red (Electronics)
This rugged little camera takes great shots on land. I was skeptical about the underwater durability but it seems great so far. The pictures are typical of basic underwater shots without additional lighting. It was purchased for a vacation to the Caribbean to reduce luggage weight (instead of lugging my Canon T3i and lenses)and to avoid the expense of one-use underwater film cameras. I purchased the extra battery and a 32GB Class 10 SD card to accommodate videos and photos. The various settings are user friendly for anyone, even as a point & shoot. It boots super-fast and is pretty intuitive (though reading the manual is recommended). Many of the reviews I read or watched were pretty accurate and very helpful.

Hi,

How many hours of operation per battery?

I can't put an exact number on it as I always shut off the power when I'm not planning to take a picture. The battery has lasted a long time, even after several days of just off and on shooting of photos and/or video. I always have a second battery charged and ready to go so that I never miss out. It's good practice for anyone, especially if you're going away on vacation.
