W80 - Great value for the price.

  • Summary: I bought this camera to take with me on backpacking trips. I recently returned from a weeklong trip in the Smokies. The W80 did a pretty good job, taking very nice pictures and surviving a few bumps and knocks along the way. For what it is, it is a very nice value. Don't expect SLR-quality photos, but it will take very acceptable snapshots to remember your trip by, and playing around with the different modes will help you get a better picture.

Pentax W80 12.1 Megapixel

7 March 2010
  • Summary: The camera has new ideas in design such as cold weather, under water to use and easy to use, and so on so that it is the best fit camera for New England area that I thought. Because I had problem with Fuji S2 camera some years ago and repare cost was as much as used S2. Pentax is very reliable company because I have owned 6x7 camera for over 15 years and I own 645 cameras and lenses, too. I was waited for a great deal then it appeared in eBay. I glabed it instantly.

Wonderful camera

  • Summary: Good quality pictures, highly portable, only downside is short battery life. I recommend buy 2 additional batteries and a AC/car battery charger so you won't end up with a dead battery when you need your camera the most.

Pentax Opto W80

dlsp5756, Ebay
5 February 2010
  • Summary: I would give a grade of between Good & Excellent. It is GOOD in terms of its compact design, plenty of features(e.g. excellent 1 cm macro), solid rugged built and price & EXCELLENT for its underwater features. I kept the ISO range between 64-100 in order to avoid excessive noise. Another thing I have not resolved is the movie recording time. It stopped at about 1 min even though I had a 16MB SDHC in it. Can someone assist? Thanks.
