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. The W30 is now about 15 months old and has been used for skiing trips and travel in Oman but had not been used in water. I have been very happy with image quality and ease of use.

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. The underwater pictures aren't great, but the camera doesn't seem to mind the immersion. The pictures--for the most part--are brilliant and sharp.

Simple To use

  • Conclusion: This camera is great for a younger photographer starting out. It is very easy to use and change settings. The pictures a good quality and come out great. It is on the small side but still durable for a clumsy person.
  • Pros: Easy, small, durable
  • Cons: None

water went into the LCD lense.

N. Chiu, Amazon
10 September 2007
  • Summary: The images taken by this camera were great. I have no complaint about that. But I had it done 1 time only under the water, not even deep, taken from right beneath the surface of the water for 10 minutes. There is water shown right behind the LCD lense. How do I get rid of it?

  • Conclusion: Batterilivslängd: 3 Bildkvalitet: 4 Hållbarhet: 4 En trevlig och oöm lekkamrat i blöta situationer. Detta är min "flytvästkamera" som är med mig i kajaken. Den går fint att fotografera med under vattnet, jag har ett par bilder från vinterns bassängträningar som är lite kul. Som bilskaparredskap generellt är det väl ingen riktig höjdare, men i sitt rätta element gör den ett gott jobb.
  • Pros: Vattentät och robust, okej bilder
  • Cons: Lite klumpug och obalanserad, lite långsam
