Had this camera for a couple of years. Finally, in November 2006, drowned it. Overall it produced many nice underwater shots, and some from whitewater rafting. Beach ones were Ok, never used it indoors. It was a great backup for DSLR equipment in every travel, kinda miss it. Problems: 1. When shooting the fish, had to turn to shutter priority and set it to 1/160 - that was the limit of unblurry photos. With the 200 ISO (limit of ungrainy photos) that was a bit limiting without the flash. ...

Outstanding outdoor and even underwater performance, well "pocketable", even as twin set up for stereo photographs Problems: tripod thread too weak, "platform" around thread far too small, result: flimsy camera mounting, damage prone

This is my third Pentax camera and I love it more than the other two combined. My last camera was the S5i and I loved it and didnt think it could get topped, but the WPi has more megapixels, larger screen, more options, faster zoon, plus its waterproof. This is the perfect camera for anyone but especially the outdoorsmen who might find themselve around water. Buydig.com is where i got it, fast shipping, Willoughbys is also a top notch dealer Problems: Hard to take pictures in low light conditions

I just bought this camera as my first digital camera. I plan on using it for home, as well as on my ambulance. The waterproof feature is a big deal. I have taken 3 pics in murky water, and 2 in salt water on accident scenes, and the pics came out great as did the camera. I worry about the view screen on the back getting scratched, but I think a simple screen protector like I have on my PDA would be a great precautionary measure.
