We decided to upgrade to the WG-2 GPS before our trip to Costa Rica. Prior to buying ours, my company purchased two of the WG-1 GPS cameras and I was able to use them a couple times in the field. I found that it took a really long time for the GPS to locate and was a little disappointed. Once we got the WG-2 GPS I was kind of shocked to see how fast the GPS would locate both in the US and in Costa Rica vs. my experience with the WG-1 GPS. I did not have a stop watch out but I can't remember waiting more than 15 seconds for the GPS to acquire.
We purchased the car charger that came with two extra batteries for around $20. One day we heavily used the Camera and took six 2 minute long videos and ended up going through two batteries. We took probably 20 pictures before our trip, over 1200 on our trip, and about 10 short videos. On our trip we used it snorkeling, ocean fishing, hiking, in the resort pools, zip lines, and whitewater rafting. Having the GPS for the whitewater rafting was pretty cool, using Picasa it placed all our photos on a Google map with little red location pins.
The underwater photos seems significantly better than any we shot with the old W10 but it might have just been clearer water or having more megapixels in this one vs. the 6 mp in the W10. The WG-2 also has the anti shake so that might have been why the pictures are better as well.
We found that the strap for the carabineer liked to slowly loosen I would recommend taking something like a small safety pin and pinning the excess strap to the main strap so it won't slide out. Ours never slid out but I had to shorten it multiple times on our vacation.Read more ›
However, the reason it did not get 5 starts is the battery life is poor. You need to have a few batteries with this camera.
24 June 2013 - Camera finally tested under water. I can confirm that it works all the way to 15 meters. Between 15 - 20 meters some of the buttons on the face stop working but the shoot button still works. Then between 20 - 25 meters the shoot button becomes a bit temperamental and all the face buttons stop working... The perspex screen looks as bent as a banana but after 5 dives below 20m, I can still confirm that everything is working!

A lot of great features, good quality video and pictures (15 MP). I was hoping to be able to buy the WG-3 that had the faster lens but didn't have the time to wait. Read morePublished on July 17, 2013 by Sam Johnson
