  • 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.

Pentax Optio W30 Review

Chrissy L. Higham "Jackson Chesterfield", Amazon
30 September 2007
  • Summary: Nice point and shoot camera! This camera produces nice, clear pictures and has numerous modes to help to get your pictures looking great in every setting. The underwater feature is incredibly cool, and it take really neat pictures underwater. Also, you can "wash" your camera off. When at the beach and you get sand all over your camera, just rinse off and it is good to go. Great buy for a great price.

  • Summary: This camera is so much fun in the water! Takes beautiful shots outside. Not that happy with zoom pictures though. But if you want a camera for water pictures this one is it!! my pictures at a water park came out crystal clear.

Pent optio w30

S. Knowles, Amazon
23 August 2007
  • Summary: Product is great for outdoor use, wonderful detail in the pictures, but I was surprised when screen changed to white on one side. The camera still works well -- do not like that I have to send to manufacturer and not deal with the people I purchased from

No Leakage Problems, Yet!

Ian Webster "IPW", Amazon
19 August 2007
  • Summary: I became very nervous about this product after reading some of the negative reviews concerning leakage. I took a leap of faith in the good reviews though and so far haven't been disappointed. I've plopped the camera in a glass of water several times and took pictures with it while submerged. No problems.

The only camera to take to the beach

Peter Bradley, Amazon
9 August 2007
  • Summary: This is my second Optio waterproof camera. It is a great point & shoot digital. As with most cameras in this price range, you will wish it could focus & shoot faster, especially since the natural reason to have this camera is for action shots at the beach. The only big negative is no viewfinder. Naturally, out in the bright sun it is nearly impossible to see the LCD screen. But hey, leave it at a short focal length and literally just point and shoot.

Fun little camera

M. Lincoln, Amazon
29 July 2007
  • Summary: For the price this is a great camera. We got it and went on vacation to the lake right away. Took the camera in the water, took lots of photos and some short video. Pictures are great, video is pretty good, and it's so fun being fearless with your camera and photo taking. You get pictures from perspectives you never would otherwise. On the cons is a slight shutter delay making action shots tougher but we still got plenty.

Better Than Expected

Kailua Steve, Amazon
9 July 2007
  • Summary: I got this camera primarily for its waterproof capability; it is not my primary camera. I've had opportunities to use it for movies in the rain, in a swimming pool, etc, and the movies are more than adequate. The sound is mono and the frame rate is o.k. It takes nice close-ups and has exposure override (+/- 2 ev) so nice HDR pictures are possible as long as the dynamic range isn't too great.
