Customer Review

on May 21, 2011
I purchased this camera from Amazon back on April 23, 2011 for $319.00 only to find it available on Amazon a few weeks later for $285.00 and again for $272. I have owned several digital point and shoot cameras and 35 mm cameras over the years including the older digital Pentax Optio WP 30. The Optio WP 30 was a MUCH BETTER camera as far as photo quality! I consider myself a very good amateur photographer. Although the Pentax WG-1 camera seems to be rugged and waterproof, I find the photo quality very poor on every setting I tried. The camera came without a warranty card so I am wondering if this was a previous return. The camera's daylight photos were not sharp at 14 mp and at 5 mp. Colors were faded, inconsistent or appeared to have a lot of "noise" on all settings. The nighttime outdoor/indoor as well as lowlight shots were even worse with or without a flash. It doesn't seem to focus well in both daylight and nighttime shots. Photos were NOT SHARP! I'm not sure if this particular camera is defective but I am sending it back to Amazon for a refund.

Pros = Looks rugged & feels good in hand. I was really hoping that this would be my outdoor goto camera because I like the way it looks and feels but...

Cons = Looks aren't everything. Poor photo quality, poor focusing, poor color saturation
