Review For: Pentax Optio WG-1 14.0 MP Digital Camera - Purple

This one awesome little camera! I bought it to use on vacation, because of it being water proof. It takes amazing pictures, so well, that must of the time we left the DSL in the hut! The panorama feature is very easy and pix come out great. The underwater pixs are also the best that I have ever taken in many years of trying! Do get some kind of a floating wrist strap or similer so that you do not lose this camera in the deep water. Thank you Pentax!

Review For: Pentax Optio WG-1 14.0 MP Digital Camera - Purple

Nice little camera great for bike riding and canoing. Shoots all outdoor pictures with ease and can take good low light level sun rises/sets by reducing the ISO speed to 200 and mounting in a tripod. Comes with a lens snap in ring that takes standard 46 MM filters - good for adding a ND filter to help slow the shutter speed for special effects on bright days.
