Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pentax Optio WG-1 Adventure Series 14 MP Waterproof Digital Camera with 5x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom (Black) (Camera)
The most fantasticly durrible camera I have ever seen. I have litterally tossed this thing around just for the fun of it, and it withstands anything.
Performs great underwater. A few bubbles come out of the power button which scared me at first, but it's normal.
The battery charges only through an external charger (so it can have less waterproof ports I suppose)
I am using a 16gb SD card which works great in it. Screen is comfortably large and bright.
Digital microscope blew my mind with the clarity and detail that can be achieved. Zoom is reasonable.
Pictures have a dramatic feel to them with great contrast.
Software is easy to use, and took me about an hour to know every feature. Great photo editing software is BUILT INTO THE CAMERA to do whatever effects you need done.
Self-portrait mode is a little bit flaky but very interesting none the less. Who uses facial recognition anyway, really? lol.
The feel of the camera is phenomenal. Rubber and very hard grippy plastic cover the whole camera, and gives a very rugged and tough feel, but it is such a tiny lightweight package.
Manual zoom, focus, aperture, and ISO come in very handy.
All in all a fantastic camera, worth every penny. :)

I bought this camera also and i think it's GREAT but i can't figure out how to set the zoom, focus, aperture and iso in manual mode! how did you do this? also, do you know what size of filter you'd use with the micro stand? i wanna get something to protect the camera's lense but cant find size anywhere
