Great for outdoors...

Labrynth "Labrynth", Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: Seeing as how this is a waterproof camera I'd say they probably really meant for it to be used more in the outdoor environment. This pics it takes then are typically excellent quality. Indoors or lower light however, suck. They are grainy, fuzzy and, well, crap. *sigh* The camera is small and very portable. I used it in the pool and it had no problems at all. But since it takes crappy indoor pics I'm looking for another camera for more full time use.

Pentax Optio W60 Waterproof Digital Camera

  • Summary: At work we use the Pentax Optio W30 and they perform superbly under the abuse we put them through. The pictures are very good so I figured I would upgrade to the W60 for my personal use. I am very disappointed in the photo quality. Not only the lighting issues mentioned in the other reviews but the photos seem very pixelated when you zoom in. My Canon set at 4 Mp had better photos than this camera set at 10 Mp.

  • Summary: I've owned a Wpi and a W30. Great cameras. After a full weekend camping and hiking in the rain the shutter button on the W60 started to not activate the shutter, the camera would focus but not take the photo, or only take it after depressing the button very hard or very long. I've returned to Amazon. Photos are good, especially in good light at lower zoom levels. Battery seems to give about 230 photos with all the bells and whistles turned off.

Tolle Schnorchlerkamera, über Wasser etwas enttäuschend

Erich K., Amazon
16 February 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe mir die Kamera im Wesentlichen zum Schnorcheln und für sonstige Outdooraktivitäten zugelegt. Zum Schnorchen ist sie sehr gut geeignet! Über Wasser liefert sie nur bei kürzeren Brennweiten und guten Lichtverhältnissen auch gute Bilder. Im Telebereich mangelt es an Schärfe und Bildstabilisator, bei weniger Licht nimmt das Rauschen stark zu.

No es lo que prometia...

  • Summary: Esperaba bastante mas de esta cámara viendo las especificaciones técnicas. Es muy ruidosa con poca luz. Similar al de mi vieja Pentax 33WR ! Con buena luz tiene tendencia a sobreexponer. Acceder a los menús con guantes es misión imposible, cosa que con la 33WR no tenia problemas. El zoom en video va a saltos y provoca interferencias en el sonido.

  • Summary: Saludos he salido con mi camara a fistas de dia y de noche y luego de haber tomados unas 200 fotos en diferentes ambientes de luz y color puedo afirmar que no estoy muy contento, la camara a pesar de tener 10 megapixeles y tenerla colocada en calidad *** superior las fotos generan un ruido significativo, tanto en fotos de dia como de noche, igualmente capta en muchas fotos ojos rojos y luego su programa de edicion no es muy bueno para corregir estos errores ya q no todas...

UNA ENORME TOMADURA DE PELO DE PENTAX

LAngel, quesabesde.com
13 September 2008
  • Summary: La esperada Optio W60 . Resistente al agua y también a sacar una sola foto con la mneor dignidad. Mucho gran angular, mucho zoom, mucha sumergibilidad pero la calidad de la imagen es pésima. Por favor, por ese precio compraros una cámara seria.
