ya 5 meters is nothing i took wg-1 rated at 33ft deep to 70ft deep and worked perfect. worst case i'll just keep pressing my luck with a deeper rated point and shoot lol my go pro is pretty sweet and rated with enough depth to suit me but its fixed focal length :(

if so, you have any pics from a dive? im thinking about getting one. im a tad of an adrenaline junky and plan on diving with some great whites hopefully in the near future. i want some great shots. i have a pentax wg-1 and a gopro hero 2 i do love those little Digital cameras and have taken some great shots with both but im curious if a dive housing is worth that expensive price.

you're exactly right! they had no idea how it performed, which i do agree that aesthetics are important, but not as important as function. i know i wouldnt want a camera that takes amazing pics but looks like an ugly piece of s**t. tho i do wonder now if i would of got offers if i had a colored K-30. although my sister inlaw bought a crystal blue k-30 and she says her clients compliment her camera all the time. my friend that went with me has a white k-x i sold her. (which she loves.) shes new to the DSLR world and i told her its a good entry level camera to start with. but no one noticed.

I went to Paris, London, Amsterdam, Switzerland & Germany which was quite lovely. Paris was a little over rated imo. but hey, this isnt trip advisor. anyways while vacationing i had several people come up to ask me about my camera. In a crowd of canikons my Silver K5 with my 18-135mm lens stood out in a crowd. Europeans seem to know more about the Pentax brand than the U.S. but still wasn't full on sure about the whole brand. but everywhere i went weather it being on a double decker, the Paris metro, or the London underground my camera drawn attention. "Monsieur, what kind of camera is that?" "its a Pentax K5." "its beautiful! may i hold it?" "no." :cool: 3 people in London gave me their email address to let them know if i ever consider selling it email them, and one guy in paris and a Lady in Switzerland. I even got a nod from a canon guy and some nikon users told me "its was very pretty." i was warned of pick pockets, scammers and camera snatchers. i did witness the scammers but not the other two so i wouldnt let any one hold my camera but a lady and a real fat guy, because i knew i could catch the fat man if he tried to run and i could beat up the lady if either tried to take it!
my trip was lovely and took some memorable shots. it was also nice being complemented on what i know is a great camera. im also considering a dive housing for my scuba adventures.

happy snapping everyone!

she also seems to be in shock that you can use this camera when its raining. and yes i did warn her its weather sealed and not meant for scuba diving and its only weather resistant with weather resistant lenses.

no she doesnt mind mf as my 50mm asahi is auto focus and she loved it after i had her do some adjusting with aperture. she likes the idea that she can afford more lenses than she can for her canon.

so the other day i was at my sister in laws home and i wouldnt say we were "comparing cameras." mine being a k5 silver edition. but when she saw it, her words: "ooooh i like that!" my words "i love it!" she has an amateur photo studio and shoots portraits for free for friends and co workers. its her way of escape from her wild ass kids lol. i was showing her some of my lenses that i enjoy my 40mm pancake lens, 18-135 wr walk around lens, and my asahi 50mm 1:1.7 then i told her i have 12 other lenses for various kinds of shooting. while she only has her kit lens and a canon ef 85mm f/1.8 which is a fantastic lens. but she loved my asahi lens especially after i told her i paid 60 bucks for on ebay compared to her 85mm she bought on some where else for over $400. then i told her the history of the k-mount. how i can choose lenses that mount right my body with out adapters that were made before we were born, and some are crap but others are amazing like my 50mm lens and some are great priced. she was really impressed with everything. after looking at her canon and looking at my k5 it looked like she was about to throw up. then i took her to the pentax website to show her other cameras they make and she fell in love with the k30 and the color options. she asked me if she can use my k5 and my lenses i shown her for a photo shoot she had the next day. later that night she text me and said she used both cameras comparing the two and she fell in love with everything about my k5 and the 3 lenses. she sold her canon to a co worker and used the money and ordered a crystal blue k30 18-135mm wr lens bundle.
pentax should send me a check :cool:

when the comment was made that "pentax is lost in the sauce" i can look at that a take that as honest opinion from a real perspective about a proper review. when kai says he wants to see something different from pentax but then quickly says "we chose the white one because its the least color to choose because it doest require you to be on lsd to look at it" or he yells "pentax is shit" but has yet to review anything other than a entry level dslr. it also pisses me off when he pretends that the flash wont close when its obvious he isnt pushing it properly. hes just pretentious and full of back handed compliments. he isnt no where near as critical on his canikons.

im fairly certain hes a virgin. lol can you imagine him trying to pick up someone with his arrogance and stupid facial expressions he makes when he says certain words, or am i the only one that notices that lol. the only person that thinks kai is a clever, witty, funny person is Kai!

yeah i heard him say he really wants pentax to make a good product that just pissed me off even more. Uh hello! what about the k5, k5ll, & k30! i dont buy it. i just think its his way of not totally bashing them. as he said in the beginning in one of his the vids "and no its not a K5" talking about a review. to me that tells me hes been asked to review the camera but hasn't. i dont think he wants to see something of quality from pentax.

i think i would of enjoyed the moss thing if was coming from some one else other than him. i will say in his benefit he did like the K01 but the review was so obnoxious with the wardrobe changes and the pointless rambling on about everything but the camera.

is it just me or does presenter Kai W. come off as a pretentious douche? ive seen a couple reviews hes done on pentax gear and he's full of back handed compliments. the last one i just watched was where he was testing pancake lenses. he gave the win to pentax but still gave slack to pentax by covering the kx with some moss because in so many ways he calls it ugly, when to me it looks like most dslr cameras but with color options. also makes fun of the Q and its ascetics. i dont know he just gets under my skin. its like hes trying to be jeremy clarkson from "top gear" clever and funny but in the camera world. to me he just comes off at looking like a moron.

so yesterday i was my local camera shop here in houston. i was listening to the sales rep. telling this woman the difference between SD cards a platinum card vs the regular SD card about how huge a difference it makes. make a long story short he persuaded her into buying the platinum 16g card for WWWAAAYYY too much! talk about price gauging! listening to his talk it make me think "are they really that serious?" does a platinum or gold SD card really make that much of a difference when it comes to snapping pics. as for me i have a SD card that takes a micro SD card because i happen to have both and been using it and swapping it in and out of my cameras.
