Comments about Pentax Optio W20 Waterproof Digital Camera - 2.5'' LCD:

I absolutley love it! I am outdoors as much as possible. When I'm fishing I don't worry about dropping it in the water, getting it muddy because I can just rinse it off. small enough to carry in your pocket. Very detailed pictures, clear. The only thing I have a hard time with is at night, you can't see the screen but when you take a picture the flash goes and when the picture pops up, it's really good! I think this is the perfect camera for someone who loves the outdoors and snapping alot of pictures of their family. A scrapbookers delight! ^_^
