Pentax Optio WPi review

I bought this camera on Dec. 12th, flew to Australia the next day. I bought this camera to be used when it wasn't practical to carry my D-SLR. Picture quality seems great, the LCD screen is large and bright.


Camera worked great for a couple of weeks, took it into the water numerous times. Eventually though I believe it got water into it and has since stopped working. We'll see what Pentax does about it. I never took it below the maximum depth, probably never close.

I just heard back from the Camera store I purchased this at, they told me Pentax has voided my warranty due to water damage! It's a waterproof camera that was used within the parameters set by Pentax! I am waiting to hear what the Pentax rep. has to say about this, if they refuse to fix it I am going to freak!

Update(April 17/06): It has been 4 months since this camera quit working and I still have not received an answer as to what they are going to do about it. I could have used this camera numerous times since then and I am very disappointed with the way I have been treated by Pentax.
