Pentax Optio 33WR review
I've had this camera for 4 years and taken it with me whenever I expected rough conditions or a chance for the camera to get wet (at or on rivers or the sea). It's still going strong. I still use it with a laughably cheap 256MB SD card and AA rechargables.
Picture quality up to IS0 400 (the highest setting) is as good as on most digital compacts I've used, and the 3MP has always provided enough resolution, even for smaller poster sized prints.
On at least one occasion, the camera got fully submerged while I had to swim with it. No problem.
In summary: it's as sturdy as plastic for this price can get. And it's still the cam I take with me on canoe trips.
A little cam one can easily grow fond of, inspite of the downsides (see below).
Keep in mind: it has a long shutter lag, so it's not ideal for snapshots where every millisecond counts. Generally, _all_ the buttons take a rather long time to react, which is why I give it an average rating for construction.
