  • Summary: AVOID THIS CAMARA! Despite being returned for repair the W80 is not capable of producing anything other than VERY POOR QUALITY images! Having talked at length to other owners who have reported exactly the same problems with the W80 I can only say that there are serious problems with this model!
  • Pros: It looks nice!
  • Cons: Everything else.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

  • Summary: I bought this product for my best friend who was moving to Australia for 5 months to study abroad. It was a Birthday present, which was specifically purchased for the under water use function. After my friend was gone for a week, she took her camera into the water for the first time.

  • Summary: After doing extensive research of waterproof/underwater cameras and reading just a handful of reviews that have said what I have experienced..I still went ahead and purchased the camera hoping it would work for me. I was so excited to receive it.

Fuzzy pics

Honest, Amazon

  • Summary: Being that the camera is supposed to be 12.1MP very dissapointed I'm sending it back with all the stuff that came along with it. The pics were fuzzy on the LCD screen then they were fuzzy when they came out. I cannot get a crystal clear picture on this thing.

don't buy this camera if you take regular pictures with it

AJK "AJK", Amazon
15 January 2010
  • Summary: Just bought this camera given anticipated buzz. Admittedly, I have not tried it underwater, or tested its ruggedness. But I am sending it back because it won't even take normal pictures accurately without graininess, blurriness and movement.

Terrible Camera

Canes Fan, Amazon
15 December 2009
  • Summary: Tried two of these cameras and had the worst pictures every taken particularly indoors. We have Option W10 which still performs better than this camera. Pictures on W80 are extremely grainy/noisy and are generally not clear. Would suggest looking for another camera rather than this one.

Worst Camera I have ever owned

L. Nolt, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: We previously had a Sony W170 that took great pictures, unfortunately we got sand in it and it quit working. We then bought the Pentax Optio W80 looking for durability. It is durable but it doesn't matter, the picture quality is horrible.

Rugged? Broke after 2 days.

Kindle Customer "nickyplumb", Amazon
17 October 2009
  • Summary: I just purchased this camera for a vacation to Disney World, I tried it out for a few days before we left, I was a little surprised at how grainy the pictures looked, especially inside, they were dark, even with the flash and the video was dark and not very clear, not what I was expecting.
