4 out of 5 stars   "A camera that's as tough as you are"
By Edge the Snowboarder (New Orleans, LA) January 13, 2012
Review submitted for Pentax Optio WG-1 Waterproof Digital Camera - Purple 4 GB Bundle (E1PKOPTWG1PL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Small / Compact, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Good Battery Life, Easy to Use
Cons: No Viewfinder, Lag / Shutter Delay
Other Comments: Were I to create an advertising campaign for this camera, it would be, "A camera that's as tough as you are." As an adventure sports enthusiast, I bought this camera just before my yearly snowboarding trip. I have to say, being able to get captures of people spraying me with snow, not worrying about dropping it, and being unconcerned whether or not I sat on it in my pocket was worth every penny this camera cost. It's not the best with shutter speeds, but the panoramic option is unbelievable for landscape photography. There are several limitations, but, this camera is not about features of fancies. It's about doing a great job in the rough and tumble lifestyle of a traveler or sportsman/woman, and it does that job supremely. Also is has the best aesthetic appeal of any camera in this genre. It looks rugged and tough, as opposed to the others who leave something to be desired in my opinion. The only con I have to keep coming back to is shutter time. It's just not quite as quick as you need it to be for outdoor settings where you have to snap shots in short order, but you have to compromise somewhere. All in all, I'd recommend the camera to anyone looking to have a point and shoot for their outdoor activities.
