5 out of 5 stars   Very versatile and easy to use
By yimmy2112 (Chicago, IL) February 23, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax WG-3 16MP White Waterproof Shockproof Crushproof Digital Camera Kit (E2PKOPTWG3W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Works great in bright sunlight for photos or video for the average user. Above or underwater was no problem. Has many different modes for different indoor/outdoor settings. Only used standard and underwater modes for pictures and movies and both worked very well. Regular zoom is good and can be used while recording video - my earlier version from Pentax would not. I did not use other modes. Camera is easy to use in or out of water.
Cons: Microphone on video is fair at best - would not use for functions that voice or sound is important. If you pan fast you can see a slight "jumpiness" in frames. Regular zoom is good(4x) and can be used while recording video. Would not recommend using the digital zoom for photos or video - as usual you lose all sharpness.
Other Comments: I used this specifically for my vacation in the Caribbean for the purpose of ease of use for these conditions - outdoors in bright sunlight and for underwater excursions(catamaran and beach use). Worked very well for this and easy to carry with - I put it in my pocket on swim trunks. I did consider the GoPro but I did not like the extreme outside "warping" from the fisheye lens. I give it 5 Stars because it did what I wanted it to do for for the above conditions.

5 out of 5 stars   TAKES A BEATING & KEEPS WORKING
By JZ (Burlington, ON) February 19, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax WG-3 16MP White Waterproof Shockproof Crushproof Digital Camera Kit (E2PKOPTWG3W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: During a vacation in Costa Rica I had a bad cycling accident with the camera taking the brunt of the fall and though it is badly scratched, it continues to work like a charm. Any other camera would have not survived and I would have been unable to take photos for the duration of my trip. The quality of the photos and video are great. Battery life is also good.

4 out of 5 stars   Small Waterproof Camera on Steroids
By Lonetree Rick (Lone Tree, CO) February 06, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax WG-3 16MP White Waterproof Shockproof Crushproof Digital Camera Kit (E2PKOPTWG3W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: A lot of features. Quite versatile. All that it can do is amazing.
Cons: Controls not so intuitive. Takes a while to learn. Heavy and bulky for a small camera but I suppose that is what makes it so robust. Shutter and on/off buttons small so they take some getting used to with large fingers.
Other Comments: The strap that comes with it has a fairly heavy duty carabineer with it which makes it good for hooking to climbing gear, etc but a little too bulky for more traditional uses. I'm still learning about the camera and have not used it in water yet. So far I have not wished I spent the extra for the GPS version.

5 out of 5 stars   Pentax Underwater Digital Camera
By JR9361 (KY) February 03, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax WG-3 16MP White Waterproof Shockproof Crushproof Digital Camera Kit (E2PKOPTWG3W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I love everything about it. The functions and effects are easy to navigate and it takes very good pictures in all types of conditions.
Cons: None that I have found yet.
Other Comments: The protective film for the viewing screen (included) seemed like a good idea but while diving it made the display harder to see because of the way the light from the surface was being diffused. I pulled the film off and the problem was greatly reduced.

By Wolf (Chantilly, VA) January 21, 2014
Review submitted for Pentax WG-3 16MP White Waterproof Shockproof Crushproof Digital Camera Kit (E2PKOPTWG3W)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice pictures, Feels sturdy, You Don't Worry About It, Rugged
Cons: The Kit Is Cheep, Buy The Items Seperatly, Shutter Button Hard Press, Zoom Noise During Vidio
Other Comments: This is a great camera to take everywhere and not worry about it. Beach, hiking, skiing, snorkeling (40 feet), bike riding, even a crowded venue where it might get knocked around. As for the kit that comes with it don't bother, if you want the items that are in it buy them separately.
