Pentax Optio W80

PC Magazine
9 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The $300 Pentax Optio W80 can shoot great pictures in bright conditions, but images captured at ISO 200 and above are noisier than average.

  • Cons: Noisy images at ISO 200 and up. Visibly noisy video capture. Sluggish recycle time. Lens window protects against water and dings, but not fingerprints.

  • Pros: Water, Dust, Shock and Freeze Proof; 720p HD movies; Ability to Travel and Shoot where most cameras can't

Pentax Optio W80 – Review – 32

D-Photo and The Photographer's Mail
14 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Design At a glance, the Optio W80 really doesn’t look waterproof. It doesn’t look particularly shockproof, either. But having left the thing in the sink (intentionally), it is quite clearly fine when dipped in water.
  • Pros: Waterproof, shockproof ¨and coldproof
  • Cons: Some problems with image noise

  • Summary: The Pentax Optio W80 is an easy-to-use, tough as old boots camera for all the family. Built to withstand virtually anything that you can throw at in (within reason of course), only so-so image quality lets the W80 down.

  • Conclusion: Beautiful and intelligently constructed compact camera boasting plenty of features. The water and dust proofing make it a cut above the rest as an amateur to intermediate travel camera.

  • Conclusion: Несмотря на то, что Pentax Optio W80 создан для съемки под водой, где света бывает катастрофически мало, даже на низких значениях светочувствительно фотоаппарат выдает довольно шумное изображение. Шум в виде еле заметных монохромных точек в теневых областях кадра заметен уже на ISO 100.
  • Pros: водонепроницаемый корпус (до 5 метров под водой не менее 2 часов);, морозоустойчивость до -10 градусов С;, ударопрочность при падении с высоты до 1 метра;, набор функций постобработки изображения;, запись видео с разрешением до 1280х720 с частотой 30 кадров/с.
  • Cons: высокий уровень шума на ISO от 400 единиц;, нестабильная цветопередача на различных значениях ISO;, низкая емкость батареи;, невозможность зумирования при видеосъемке.
