5 out of 5 stars   Love this camera!
By Scuba (Baltimore, MD) October 06, 2012
Review submitted for Pentax Optio WG-3 Waterproof Digital Camera - Black 8GB Bundle (E2PKOPTWG2BLUE)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Durable, Picture Quality, price, Waterproof To 40ft
Cons:
Other Comments: Given the price category of this camera, this is was a great camera on our Carribean vacation. We took it down to 40ft scuba diving and snorkeling. The pictures and video came out great. It is compact in size but has a nice size screen so you can see what you're shooting. When we were scuba diving, we carabinered the camera to our scuba vest so it was out of the way, secure, but really easy to get to. After using the camera, we would rinse it in fresh water and give it a couple of hours to dry fully before taking the SD card out. It worked out great!

4 out of 5 stars   Pentax Optio Family
By Melissa (PA) September 04, 2012
Review submitted for Pentax Optio WG-3 Waterproof Digital Camera - Black 8GB Bundle (E2PKOPTWG2BLUE)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Tough, User friendly
Cons:
Other Comments: I bought my first Optio which was maybe a 10th generation. I fell in love with it. My bro in-law broke it ocean diving at around 25-30 ft. So he bought me the generation before this one. I currently use it & love it. My sister being a new mama wanted one due to little ones slobbering all over things and not being so gentle. So she got the same one about a year ago. This one was purchased for my sis in-law who is expecting. They wanted one too since it is so nice to have with little kids; not having to worry about them breaking them:) They love it. This newer gen is a little larger & heavier, but it is tougher and not much different than the older versions. Which is good. If it isn't broke, dont fix it.
