4 out of 5 stars   Great point and shoot to keep with you
By Stonefeather (Long Island NY) November 20, 2011
Review submitted for Pentax Optio WG-1 Waterproof Digital Camera - Black 4 GB Bundle (E1PKOPTWG1BK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Point Shoot
Cons: Many features to learn
Other Comments: My primary use is for digiscoping. Since it has a recessed lens it won't scratch the lens on the scope. I also like to take pictures of small insects and this camera is ready made for that purpose with special lighting for that purpose.

5 out of 5 stars   Excellent camera!
By CmeGo (apple valley, ca) November 14, 2011

Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: We just bought this 3 days before our 11-day cruise. We were so amazed at how great this camera worked, and all the features on this camera are incredible. We did a lot of water adventures and the camera held up great, even during a rugged water tubing down a rigorous river, it held up. This has not just met our expectations, but has exceeded them. Great purchase. This has proven to be the best camera we have ever purchased (and we have bought many...some inexpensive and some very expensive). For the price, you can't beat it.
