Not so great pictures.

  • Summary: I bought this camera as a purse camera for my wife. She wanted a rugged waterproof camera to use at the pool for the kids. I'm obviously spoiled from taking pics with my regular camera, a Nikon D90, but the Optio W80 really fails to impress. I havent used it outdoors yet, but indoor pics are very subpar. The built in flash ruins the pictures. The camera is very slow to take a pic in the first place. And the rear LCD screen is pretty low-res.

Don't hate it - but don't like it

  • 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. At first, when all the photos we took turned out grainy I figured it was the settings that needed to be changed.

Easy Cam! Pentax Optio W80

  • Summary: This is a revised review. Just to clear things up, I do like the camera, it has many neat features, and is fairly simple to use. I am impressed with it's size and love the fact that it is waterproof! However there is one bad thing with "ALL 3" Pentax Optio W80 Digital Cameras that I have had so far. All 3 cameras have had faulty image sensors, therefore the photos are all discolored.

Wouldn't buy this camera again!!

  • 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. Read the booklet entirely and always have it on hand.....one more thing, the shutter doen't have a lens cover....it's open for damage. NOT the best buy.

Terrible picture quality--it is going back

Nunya, Amazon
2 November 2009
  • 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. I am not a camera snob or anything but I found that any picture in less than bright light or even in good light but with movement was extremely grainy. They look like scans from a photo that has been blown up too large. I'm sending it back.
