Anybody know what PIM III format is? Hopefully that's some kind of RAW, even if it's proprietary.

WG-2 Specifications

I'm not sure- could it be a feature of JPEG? Doubt they'd ever put RAW in a P&S.

I'm attaching the specsheet, BTW.

The PIM format is a freeware compression tool by Ilia Muraviev. It uses an LZP-based compression algorithm with a set of filters for executable, image and audio files. Personal Information Manager file.

It has a backlit CMOS sensor - that's quite promising! Maybe I will replace my W10, this camera may be the first of the endless row of W-Optios released since I bought the W10 6 years ago that actually has improved IQ when using higher ISO than 100.

I suppose for the strict definition of point and shoot (no settings) that would make sense, but this isn't really that. It's a compact. There are compacts with RAW (some of them from Ricoh). None that are waterproof as far as I know though. (Unless you count hacked firmware for the Canon D10.)
