Pentax Optio W10 Reviews

Popular Photography Magazine has reviewed the Pentax Optio W10 and write: “There are 25 shooting modes that preset the camera to a given situation, including Underwater and Underwater Movie. These modes simply utilize a blue filter. Even in Program mode, we had to adjust levels and curves to remove blue cast from our underwater test shots. We’d prefer if the Underwater mode would set the camera to Pan Focusing mode, and set the fastest possible shutter speed to better freeze moving subjects in the water. Although there is an ocean of 6MP compacts on the market at the moment, not many are capable of handling the wet and the weather like the Pentax Optio W10. If you want a seaworthy compact camera, you really can’t go wrong with this one.”

Trusted Reviews has posted a Pentax Optio W10 review where they write: “The W10 takes the unique abilities of the WP and WPi and improves on them. Better image quality, better movies, better handling and faster overall performance make it indisputably a better camera, while the lower launch price makes it even better value for money. If you’re into skiing, surfing, snorkelling or any other camera-killing lifestyle, but still want a sleek pocket compact then it really is the best option.”

Digital Camera Review has published a Pentax Optio W10 review where they write: “The Pentax Optio W10 can withstand an accidental dunk in the water, a drop in the sand, or even some shallow snorkelling. Good image quality, good battery life, and easy operation make it a great performer, above water and below. This is a great camera for anyone who likes to spend time near water and take pictures.”
