In Hawaii, go-anywhere includes underwater. This is my second Pentax Optio WP-series waterproof camera, I liked the original WP (only 5 mega pixel) so I did not hesitate to buy this WG-2 when I wanted to upgrade.

I like it overall, but it is not everything I hoped it could be. I've had it for a few months, but I waited until I used it while snorkeling to finalize the review. Let's face it, you buy this camera for underwater use.

It could be better in the following areas:
(1) Shutter release button is kind of recessed (may be just flush) and kind of hard to press. I can understand the on-off switch being recessed, but why the shutter release button??? If you take a picture accidentally, what's the big deal? Just erase it! Make the shutter release button easier to press.
(2) Other buttons are small-ish. Some buttons are for fingernail operation. Definitely not operable with gloved hand (diving glove).
(3) No zooming capability in video mode while shooting. Why? I want to zoom in and out while shooting.
(4) The battery-memory-card compartment door is tricky to close. It's the same (as original WP) two-hand operation to open and close, which is good because you don't want it to open accidentally. But closing requires fine alignment of the door to the body, and I worry this mechanism will wear prematurely. It has not leaked, yet, but I worry about this door mechanism developping a leak.
(5) Auto exposure in video mode is not continuously adjusting, once the shutter release is pressed the exposure setting seems to be locked in that initial setting. It is OK for most video situation, but if you start the video footage underwater, and continue shooting while surfacing and above water, the exposure becomes all wrong.

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.

we had this camera for about 2 weeks...during that time we were actually pleased with the picture quality and the videos it took..the camera was handled like a baby but started having issues with the pictures being out of focus..the iso was not adjusting based on the type of picture chosen...like the sports setting would not increase the iso up to handle fast shutter speeds...we called pentax and was told to send back to them... they received it September 17 (about 7 weeks ago)...they say they are waiting on a part that is on backorder...this camera was brand new and rather than send another camera we sit here waiting for them to fix the one they have with no idea when we will get it back...i have always been a big supporter of pentax and have multiple dslrs K5s, lens, etc and i am actually worried now that if i have issues with any of my other equipment i will have to deal with their service center...their service is terrible...if i were to rate the camera for the short period it worked i would give it 4 stars but rating the service group at pentax gets a big 0...i know there are lemons you can get, but come on pentax, stand behind your product and send a new one and treat customers like you care!!! i was on the pentax forum today and another individual commented on having the same problem...buyer beware...i wonder how many are having issues.

I bought to replace my lost Nikon Coolpix AW100 since I wanted to try something different. Picture quality is good only in sunny conditions, in every other situation it takes a very bad dive, night shots have very noticeable grain; shaky pictures in low light are common, ghosty or just plain bad. Nikon's was excellent most of the time under a wide variety of conditions. As far as construction, this camera is not heavy. When you are at sandy places like the beach, or deserts, or sand dunes of Utah, this camera gets lots of sand everywhere, I could not even open or close the battery compartment after just one afternoon ,... so much for a 'tough' camera.

On the positive side, this camera can produce very detailed and fine close ups that are well lit. Also, the remote shutter works adequately and combined with a tripod everyone will be in the picture, with no need to set self-timer and running towards your party. Lens location in the center is a really good idea, no more fingers on your pictures! Video quality is mediocre. I feel this camera is overpriced overall in comparison to other waterproof cameras.

This little camera beat my expectations times 10. It not only takes basic pictures with clarity, it also has many features. One of my favorite is the microscope mode, which is very cool to zoom in on bugs and have a clear picture. I have never seen this on other cameras.I also appreciate the smile capture mode+ self portrait. All you have to do is smile and it snaps the pic for you! Also, the zoom does quite well for the lense not to expand. Very cool camera and would recommend to any outdoors person who likes to have good pictures/ video to reflect on.
