Hey guys

I'm really very interested in these two compact cameras but I notice that there really isn't much on this site about them or their brands even... This is a bit disappointing to me because Steve's Digicams is really the most informative and seemingly unbiased site out there. Does anyone know about anything blatantly good or bad about these models?

I realize the WPi is waterproof so is probably making trade offs in other areas, but the idea of a camera that I can just rinse off while traveling is pretty enticing...

Any idea where I can get more, reliable info?

The Pentax might be too new to find a good review as it was only announced Aug 30. Steve did the FX5 & 7 along with most of the Panasonics that have been out long enough to finish the tests, so he isn't avoiding the brand.


There probably are some compromises in making an underwater camera. The big feature of the FX9 is the stabilization. They also upgraded to an excellent LCD. I think the 7Mp CCD is a little better as well.

If you want multiple reviews to compare you might want to sit on your hands for a while.
