  • Summary: This was my first "Rugged / waterproof" camera. I purchased this camera specifically for using when camping/ hiking/ canoeing. I purchased extra batteries, protective skin case (PESOW60C), LCD Invisible Shield, Floating wrist strap, and 2 crucial 8Gb memory cards in June of 09. I tried it at home a little bit to familiarize myself with it. Then it went on a 12 day backpacking trip at Philmont Scout Camp in New Mexico.
  • Pros: I have not had to worry about keeping it dry or dust free. It has survived being left in a car in 90 degree weather with the window rolled up for 8hrs. As well as being sat on, dropped from small heights, set down on counters & rocks none to gently. Like the post office it has delivered no matter, rain, snow or shine. I've never had to decide on IF to take the camera with me because of where I was going, the weather or what I was doing. Though I did take it out of my ...
  • Cons: I don't like the fact that I can not zoom in and out when taking video. You have to set the depth to where you want it and then start taking the video., I do not use the High def video due to the low frame rate., I'm afraid to use it underwater due to other reviews of it not to survive this as well as the reviews of poor customer service after having problems. Though I do imagine this is mostly due to, you get one good customer review per 20 bad reviews. People tend t...

  • Summary: This has been a great camera. Small and has stood up to dirt, water and had use. The optional rubber skin helps.
  • Pros: Macro shots, form factor and image quality compared to its peers.
  • Cons: Weaknesses are not at the camera as much as the type. One needs to know the modes and watch the ISO settings. I limit ISO at 400 and use green button mode to go higher in a hurry to make sure I don't have too much grain. Battery life is not great.

  • Summary: I got one off Amazon and was impressed. It takes great pictures if you do not use the auto 800 setting. Just use it at 100 or 200 setting. Great videos. [...] These are three I made for some friends. The controls are easy to use and work. great picture options. Good underwater shots but do not go to deep. AAA+++ Going to buy the W80 next.

  • Summary: I was quite impressed with the quality of the Pentax Optio W60. On the water, in the water or anywhere, it takes great pictures. Just went on vacation recently and everyone commented on the clarity and image quality.

  • Summary: I had the older Pentax W20 and loved it. Take it on remote float trips in Alaska. Just a great camera. The new W60 is that much nicer. Need a waterproof camera, buy it. Nothing to worry about. Nothing to regret. This product is top shelf.

Pentax Optio W60 Waterproof Digital Camera

K.McHale, Rate it all!
7 September 2008
  • Summary: Great pictures, and waterproof helps in the rain. The only thing I don't like is the battery charger is a little big. One that plugs into the wall without the power cord like the Cannons would be better.

Schöne Bilder mit der Pentax Optio W60 - auch unter Wasser!

  • Summary: Sie suchen für ihren langersehnten Urlaub eine Kamera die schöne Landschaftsbilder macht. Da ist die Pentax Optio W60 genau das richtige! So und jetzt wollen sie aber noch, die die Welt unter Wasser fotografiert. Die z. B. schöne Bilder von Fischen oder Korallen macht. Auch da muss ich sagen, kann die Pentax mithalten. Das schöne an dieser Kamera ist auch, dass sie ein Video drehen können und das mit hoher Qualität.
  • Pros: Gutes Preis - /Leistungsverhältnis .  Tolle Bildaufnahmen möglich
  • Cons: Akku recht schnell leer

  • Summary: Прекрасный выбор для любого вида отдыха в любых погодно-климатических условиях!
  • Pros: Компактность, отличная детализация, много понятных и простых настроек, качество снимков как на суше, так и под водой, абсолютная пыле- и водонепроницаемость даже в соленой воде (сам проверял в Таbланде и до 8 метров глубины, и в пыли слоновьего шоу), великолепная цветопередача, скорострельность, отличное HD видео, да много чего... И главное (правда, может это мне повезло) — за год ни разу не сглючила ни на морозе, ни в жаре.
  • Cons: Где-то надо держать специальную фибру, чтобы после соленой воды протереть оптику... :-) Есть небольшие шумы при съемке в темноте, но они запросто убираются программно. Больше недостатков не заметил

  • Conclusion: Batterilivslängd: 3 Bildkvalitet: 4 Hållbarhet: 5 Delar av problemen som två tidigare recensioner (Petra & Kimmy) anger är för mig rena handhavandefel. Kameran har från fabrik extremt generösa auto-ISO inställningar där kameran pendlar mellan ISO 50-6400. Auto-ISO spannet var den absolut första inställningsändring jag gjorde (jag satte intervallet till mellan ISO 50-100 om det är ljust ute, vid behov expanderar jag spannet till ISO 50-400).
  • Pros: Vattentät, gediget byggd, mycket användbart zoomomfång (28-140 mm), inget utskjutande objektiv, mycket liten och lätt, bra pris (menar förstås butikspriset, inte vad jag betalade beg), makroläge, klockren följeslagare till dyr och stor dSLR
  • Cons: Ingeting givet förutsättningarna (jag hade förstås gärna sett 720P filmläge med 30 fps ist f 15 fps - eller ännu hellre 1080P med 30 fps), batteritiden (ganska dålig, jag har ett extra batteri till min kamera)
