Pentax W30

Arson 91, Amazon
8 October 2010
  • Summary: I am an Arson Investigator for my City fire department. I have used the Pentax W30 for almost 3 years and I love it. As you can imagine the conditions I work in are hot, wet and smokey. The Penatx W30 has always provided me with the great photos I need under these adverse conditions.

Pentax Optio W30 makes it Easy to Take Great Pictures

J Bullard "Tattooman", Amazon
30 September 2008
  • Summary: I've only had this camera about three months and will do a long term review at a later date. I bought this camera primarily to take pictures from my boat in Choctawhatchee Bay and on river canoe trips. I was looking more for splash resistance as I don't plan opn taking photos under water.

W30 long term review

Alan Roberts "Alan", Amazon
15 August 2008
  • Summary: I bought the W30 as an upgrade for the Pentax WPi which I have had for about three years. That camera gave good service and met its waterproof claims. It was used extensively for kayaking, skiing and snorkelling and eventually failed after being taken too deep.

Does the Job

Allen Moore, Amazon
28 April 2008
  • Summary: I wanted a camera that I could take on sea kayaking trips without having to worry about it getting wet. I've taken this camera on two trips so far, and it certainly seems to be waterproof. Sometimes I'll even hold it underwater to photograph sea critters in shallow water.

  • Summary: Pentax: bad cameras + bad customer service = declining shareholder value I bought a Pentax Optio W30 online. This is a waterproof camera submersible upto 10 feet for upto 2 hours. As part of testing it, I took it in thigh deep water on Waikiki beach on Oahu and took some pictures.

Pentax Optio W30 leaks/Pentax Repair Center Awful

John Ritchey, Amazon
20 February 2008
  • Summary: My neighbor recently purchased the Pentax Optio W30 digital camera. This theoretically waterproof camera was purchased to use while whitewater rafting. At no time was it ever submerged in water, only splashed in big waves. (The Pentax warranty says it is waterproof to 10' depth.

Perfect on the go compact camera

S. Kraft "John K", Amazon
9 February 2008
  • Summary: I had it for almost a month now. It's a great little camera that does a decent job of capturing precious moments. Best part is the waterproof and dustproof body. Can use it at water parks without worrying about the water rides.

Not for night use

Overstock
29 January 2008
  • Summary: We have had this camera for a year now. It does great outdoor pictures and the underwater feature is great!!! However, using it at night is not optimal. The shutter speed is very slow and many of the pictures turn out blurry.
