My Pentax WG-2 guest review

For anyone who may be interested, I did a brief guest review of the WG-2 on Dan Bailey's blog:

Nice. I guess a lot of forum members (me including) would appreciate it if you post it in review section: Pentax Optio WG-2 / WG-2 GPS - Pentax Compact Digital Cameras - Pentax Camera Reviews and Specifications

Good enough review, but I think the lack of manual settings is reaching out. Don't know of any P&S cameras(Canon G series excluded) that offer manual control like is being expected.

Agreed, manual controls are probably not found on any compact, rugged camera. I was trying to describe my experience using the camera, and that was definitely something that I found difficult to work around. Even just a shutter speed mode would be awesome. It would be nice to manually select 1/1000 for action shots or 1/60 for panning/motion blur shots, assuming that the camera can work with ISO and aperture to get proper exposure.
