Pentax Optio 33WR review

This is my fifth digital camera. I bought it specifically to shoot photos from the kayak on whitewater trips. It does a decent job of this. My main complaints are that the image quality could be better and the lens should have a cover to keep water drops off. The camera seems very durable and definitely water proof. I keep it in the mesh pocket of my life jacket. You can see some full size samples here:


Water drops on the lens
It does not float as shown in the ad. Don't drop it in the water.
