NOT 'Adventure-Proof'!
Jul 12, 2013

I bought this camera from Target 5/21/13. I'm not sure why, but Pentax has chosen them to be the only retailer for this model. I used the camera for kayaking and to carry on my motorcycle. I thought the label 'adventure -proof' would be appropriate. The camera took decent pics, but I'm disappointed that I've had to send it back to Pentax already to be repaired. The back screen has cracked and eliminates some of the info on the left side. The photos are not affected, but now I question the integrity of the camera. For an 'adventure-proof' camera, it has not come close! For lasting only 6 weeks before needing repaired,,, you might want to try some of the other 'tough' cameras.
