Pentax Optio W30

PhotographyBLOG

  • Summary: The Pentax Optio W30 is a fairly unremarkable camera that succeeds largely due to being water and dust proof, and very easy to use. This is truly a camera that you can take on your next beach holiday, and not have to worry if it gets dropped in the sand or sea. The W30 also makes a great companion for a snorkelling trip, and is generally a hard-wearing camera - if it can survive daily use by the Royal National Lifeboat Institute, then it can survive most things!

Absolut Photo
27 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Dans la catégorie "baroudeur", le Pentax Optio W30 permet de faire de jolies photos jusqu'à 3 mètres de profondeur et par tous les temps. L'apareil a une bonne prise en main grâce à un design repensé . Voici une liste non exhaustive des caractéristiques de l'appareil : il est équipé d'un capteur CCD de plus de 7 millions de pixels, d'un objectif traité anti-buée ainsi qu'un anti-gouttelettes et il offre aussi un zoom optique de 3x.
  • Pros: Etanchéité jusqu'à 3 m, Qualité optique
  • Cons: Pas de grand angle, stabilisateur et détection des visages inefficaces, Image dégradée au-delà de 400 ISO
