One awesome little camera!
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!

Must have for anyone that needs a easy to use weather proof camera
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.

If water is included you need this camera.!!!
I bought this camera for the waterproof feature , everything else in features it came with was a bonus. Two other guys and I do alot of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, both kayaks and wading so that is the need for waterproofing.Just got back from Tampa St.Pete area and the camera performed exactly as described.The picture quality and zoom are perfect, very operator friendly a plus when offshore in a kayak .One very satisfied buyer with a camera that performs as it claims
