Summary: I bought this camera because it is water-proof, shake-proof and has a high quality pixal. Although the quality is there, there is also two flashes before the shutter is activated and usually the subject has moved.....this cannot be changed.......it is not the easiest camera to operate either.
Summary: I bought this to replace a W30 that gave up the ghost. I could not be more disappointed. While it is a little easier to use and hold on to than the W30, the picture quality is absolutely terrible.
Summary: The best digital camera my husband and I ever owned was a Pentax W10 - it lasted for years and took great photos.. very resilient. We figured that if a W10 is this great that a W80 would be even better but we were sadly mistaken after receiving our W80 and taking a few photos.
