Worked great...until it stopped.

MonkeyFace, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: Bought this for a trip to the western Pacific. It worked well, and I got some great snorkeling pictures. It's not my everyday camera; I use it sporadically when I need the waterproof feature. The next year, I went to use it again, and it wouldn't turn on. Total bummer.

Not as good as the Optio W10

B. Acker "Bridgieee", Amazon

  • Summary: My Optio W10 died on me, and while it had it's faults it was a good reliable camera. The W60 has some of the same complaints (slow to take pics, not good in low light, etc) but the images are even worse than the W10. I wouldn't recommend this camera. I haven't used the waterproof feature yet..

Disappointing. Poor followon to the W10

  • Summary: I bought the W60 early this summer when my W10 was damaged in an accident. I am extremely disappointed in the W60. The user interface is basically fine, but I find it hard to press the separate buttons (I always feel fat-fingered on it). The W10 in contrast was much easier to manipulate.

  • Summary: Camera received with the wrong charger, the plug can not be used in the U.S. I think they should have specified that

Fine for still pictures, USELESS for taking movies, and here's why...

  • Summary: I'm sad to say that this is going to be a negative review of the Pentax Optio W60 Waterproof 10MP digital camera. First let's start with the basics and then you can watch the video review for the whole story. Still shots: no issue.

Was Excited until I saw the Photos

Michael U. Hansen "Ute Fan", Amazon
9 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought the first Pentax W, and still have, use and love it. I was excited to upgrade, but have since been disappointed. I have tried to learn how to use this model by reading the manual...something I have not needed to do in the past. But I am giving up.

Optio W60 belongs at the bottom of a pool

Amazon Customer "Work Hard. Play Harder.", Amazon
13 January 2009
  • Summary: This is not the camera to get for responsive picture taking or photo quality. Luckily those are not the things I was looking for since I have a Canon XSi for those ends. The reason I have this camera is to have a nearly indestructible tiny camera along with me wherever I go.

Tragically flawed camera

Sam Johnson, Amazon
20 December 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this camera for an upcoming flyfishing trip to New Zealand where inclement weather reigns supreme. It is not unusual to get 7 days of bad weather in row, hard rain snow, down in Fiordland. Having taken several trips before I thought this camera might be the perfect solution.

A Camera Shouldn't Meow

DocBrewMaster, Amazon
28 August 2008
  • Summary: I did a bit of researching on the internet trying to compare the Pentax w60 and the Olympus 1030SW . I was rather torn on what to do. I was determined to find a camera that can go out into the wild and survive.

Poor Image Quality

Alan A. Mapes "kayaker1", Amazon
30 July 2008
  • Summary: I had really high hopes for the new Pentax waterproof, but have been sadly disappointed. The handling of the camera is really nice - all the functions work well, and it's really convenient to have the camera in the pocket of my PFD while kayaking.
