A Solid Workhorse!

latsyrhc, Ebay
1 November 2012
  • Summary: I have had this camera for years. This is a solid workhorse camera that is still working. It has been underwater, in pools, slammed into ocean shore rocks, and dropped by a toddler. It still works and takes great pictures. Awesome!

  • Summary: I love this camera!! This is actually my second one that I am purchasing. I have taken it snorkeling and white water rafting. It takes wonderful pictures (both above and below the water!). It is a convenient small size - perfect for keeping in your packet during hikes and adventures!

User Review

  • Excerpt: I have the Olympus Stylus 800 weather proof camera but wanted something for snorkelling on our cruise. I purchased the Pentax Optio W10 and found the color quality better than the Olympus. Brighter truer colors, smaller case size and waterproof... winning combo for a pocket camera. Not all the features or quality of the big boys but great for what it is intended.

Works for me

  • Summary: I've had this camera for five years. It's survived many drops & bangs, underwater excursions & sudden rain. The quality of the photos is not necessarily top notch for things like landscapes, but I have taken some great pictures with it, so I think it depends on your picture taking skills. I think it was a good investment. The only drawback I can think of is that when the battery is dying, you dont get much warning.

  • Summary: Very durable and easy to use. Good pictures with a minimum of fuss. Quick transfer to my computer. Underwater pictures can be very striking. Would recommend putting a floating harness on it however.

Pentaz Optio W10...Nice Camera

  • Summary: The W10 is a great Camera, we own 2 of them, my son dropped and broke the flash of our 1st one....so we bought another one. We take alot of photos at sporting events. It is great for those. Some of the indoor photos are grainy. But if there is light the indoors are nice too. I would recommend this camera if you go to the beach or on the boat or to the swimming pool the waterproof is great!!! The video on it is great to...Over all we love our W10.

  • Summary: This is an amazing camera with long lasting battery power, underwater photos come out great, as do all other photos. It has a powerful flash and is so easy to operate! The Zoom hss no external moving parts, so no problems with water, the elements, etc. I use this often at concerts, general use and while boating. This is my second one, that I purchased as a gift, and I would buy another. Great value!

  • Summary: I've left this thing out in zero degree weather all day taking time lapse of a blizzard and still keeps on working! Also I have left it out in the rain for some time lapse. The thing just keeps on ticking! I can leave it out for 1 pic per minute without recharging for a 13 hour period!

Pentax Optio W10 Digital Camera

SusanSankarsha nan, Rate it all!
3 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera for my many snorkeling trips worldwide. The first trip I took it on was the Maldives and I was really excited to get some great underwater shots. I took it out on the reef in fairly calm conditions and the camera failed and never would turn back on. I was really upset at this but figured that the company would replace it, however when I sent it to them they said the seals were fine so they would not replace it. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!!!!
