5.0 out of 5 stars Worked like a treat, 27 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pentax WG-3 Waterproof Digital Camera - Orange (16MP, 4x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Camera)
Fab little camera. Brought for a red sea snorkelling holiday and I have taken some great photos of fish with it on it's first outing. No leaks although not taken to depth. I would recommend you buy some sort of bag to put it in when in the water as the instructions tell you not to swim with it in your hand which when snorkelling is a little hard unless you put it down you costume!! I brought a cheap bum bag and put the camera in that when swimming around and it seems to have worked a treat. Lots of features that I still need to work through but I'm looking forward to more experimenting with it as time goes on. Remember to rinse in clean water after swimmimg in the sea and ensure it's bone dry before you open the battery/ card flap. No lens cap could be an issue if you really are going to take it into really rough situations and drop it lots but treat it with alittle bit of care and you should be ok, the lens is recessed so it's not that exposed, an intergrated lens cap would only give another place for water to get into the camera so I can understand why they have left it off the only problem I had was one finger print on the lens once and some sand that got on it but careful cleaning sorted both issues and no scratches. All told I am happy with my purchase at the moment and would recommened it to anyone wanting a good little camera for snorkelling photos.

The comment in this review about not swimming with it was very helpful, sounds that the pressure created by motion is the prob.
I wonder how many cameras this applies to.
