Your droll but dismissive fashion analysis left me with little more information than the accompanying photo provided. It did provide me with a reason to spend less time on your blog.

I do not understand as to why you shot the night photo at ISO 1600. why not shoot it at base ISO at the max shutter speed of 4 seconds?

Thanks for the review! Nice site! How about the battery?

*Lantis- I’ll field that battery question.  This is my second Pentax toughie, the first being the W90 a few years back.  I had to buy two batteries for that one, as I was using it primarily for video and it would tank after about an hour and a bit.  This one seems a bit better and I am still using only the one battery, but the time frame is about the same.  I run it at 720p/60 frames and max record length is fixed at 25 minutes regardless of card size.  I can get at least two sessions on one battery, but very little else.  AS well, it dives fast from the third (lowest) battery bar, then goes to red alert, which gives maybe another 5 minutes, depending on what you’re doing.

Is there a compatible additional zoom lens for the Pentax Optio WG-2 camera?  If so, do you know where I can locate it on line?
