Pentax is up to their 13th. generation Optio. They have always been good all-around waterproof cameras with killer macro capabilities but this mother looks like a force to be reckoned with! It has all the usual features expected on a top-notch waterproof point 'n shoot cameras but the macro features on this sucker sounds insane.

It even comes in red to match Woolly's eyes.

I thought that they were at 12th generation with the Option WG-1, you know somethin' we & Pentax don't know?

and I prefer Purple... a royal color...

okay, I found the WG-2, but not on Pentax's site..... go figure...

me -There's a season?

It's been a very good camera except the fuzzy shots from when the lens ring plucks chest hairs. It's high time I updated, no?

it sounds impressive, has some features that I would like...

6 led lights(added 1 from the WG1's 5) for macro

1080P video

chest harness???

Extended dynamic range

Lower noise at higher ISOs

I might be interested, if / when the Olympus 1030sw dies... but what I really want is the new Nikon D800

I just bought a WG-1

Pretty damn impressive.  I will start taking some outdoor flicks when my back heals

This is my first picture with my new camera.  I did not let the computer do any of the light or focus adjustments .

I just took the flick and put it on here.
The flick is of a mayfly with stained glass that was made by our late friend Captain Jack West

I have the w90 not sure what incantation it is, but the one thing that I do not like are the hues of yellows when I shoot. Seems bright yellows on this camera always wash out, but reds and oranges are ok. Doesn't handle low light that well, maybe someone knows a trick to keep the yellows from washing/blurring?

My picture weighs more than your picture.

Rhody,

Do you shoot your outdoor flicks in "Flower" mode ?  My previous Pentax  (A number 10 in think) and all other Pentax's that I know of shoot better in "Flower " mode

Also if you are using windows 7 , the "My Pictures" deal has all sorts of features to adjust focus and lighting settings, etc,etc .

I'd be interested to getting some thoughts and opinions of this:

Best of both worlds or worst of both?

One thing I noticed is that it isn't crushproof or shockproof like the other outdoor cameras.  Don't know if your planning on taking it while bluelining, but I like to have something I can beat around a little and not have to worry about breaking.  As far as the specs for picture taking, maybe wooly or rbphoto will chime in.

I may be stating the obvious, but it's worth pointing out that "weather sealed" and "water proof" are not the same thing.  It probably won't survive a dunking. 


The Dude

I'm actually glad you pointed that out, because I had assumed the two to mean the same.
