Up date 5/20/2013: The camera was returned March 13, 2013 to Pentax for repairs. It was returned back to me March 29, 2013. That was fast! But the WG-2 has the same memory problem. I called Pentax. They were very nice to talk to. I returned the WG-2 a second time about 4/25/2013. Received a phone call on 5/13/2013 that a new WG-2 was on the way. I received the new one 5/6/13. The new one is great. It keeps it's memory when the battery is removed for charging.
Even the best company's some times have a problem. Pentax is a very good company,the WG-2 is a great camera!
I will say that until this happened, this camera took great underwater and outdoor pics/ videos. Indoor, not so great, but I purchased this for outdoor use. So many fun features and easy to use. LOVE the macro feature.
Anyway, I am returning this camera and will probably purchase another one...I think its worth giving it a second chance. (Although i am bummed i didnt have it for the remainder of my vacation!)
This little guy is absolutely great under water.. We took it to the water park this weekend and unlike the other dads running around with their slr bodies with huge zooms, I was spending my time with her and still getting the shots.. This is a must for all moms & dads!! I'm not going to go into all of the technical details as others have reviewed them already, as an enthusiast and someone who has shot professionally I can't recommend this thing enough.. We got ours last week and today ordered one for my sister and one for the in-laws..
Kid Proof (almost... the LCD has a few small scuffs but she put it through the test)
Macro is almost unreal.. Digital microscope is amazing for the price
Slow video mode is gimmicky but pretty cool nonetheless
Face detection under water is a god send.. even with my 4 year old I only missed a few shots
Tons of scene modes for the point & click folks
Surprisingly even in low light very little shutter lag
White Balance is sketchy with flash
Noise is apparent above ISO 400, not horrible but noticeable
No manual controls
No Raw capability
Battery life isn't as bad as some of the reviews, I was able to get 140 pictures and 29 2-3 minute videos off of one charge, but yes buy extra batteries..
People will look at you funny when you come up for air and chimp the lcd ;)
That all said.. It's not going to compete with any high end gear.. however it will get the shot that others simply would not. I dropped it a bunch of times in the
pool and it just kept ticking... It even comes with a carabiner type clip..
The rest of the camera won't win any contest, just enough to survive getting clobbered by the competitions.
