J.J.Pentax waterproof digital camera

Voted 5/5

I have had this camera for 2 years. I LOVE IT. one of the best purchases i have made in a long time. It is compact, light, waterproof, dustproof, user friendly interface, lots of pre-set options. It takes surprisingly good macro pics. The video quality is crazy good too!! The one and only downfall is the lack of optical zoom but, its a fair trade for the waterproofness. I definetly would recomend this for any outdoor enthusiast, especially if you do winter activities.

live2climbTHE climber's camera

Voted 5/5

Just got this camera a month ago. It's the perfect climbers cam because...
GREAT IMAGES: I shot all my pics w/the w20 EXCEPT MY PROFILE PIC ENTITLED 'THE SMILE SAYS IT ALL'. Also great video. Let me know if you want a sample video clip. I have more photo's on my facebook profile. name: braden downey
DURABLE - shock resistant and scratch resistant lense. Internal lense so nothing sticks out leaving it vonerable to accidents.
WEATHERPROOF - you will be happy you don't have to worry about your camera being ruined because of bad weather, and yes, you will see bad weather sometimes.

BUY THIS ONE BECAUSE YOU WILL BRING IT UP WITH YOU INSTEAD OF LEAVING A SLIGHTLY HEAVIER, LESS WEATHERPROOF, AND LESS SHOCKPROOF CAMERA IN THE CAR. DEFINATELY THE WAY TO GO FOR A CLIMBER.
