Review: Pentax Optio W90

Wired
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Point-and-shoot cameras often have it tough. A night out on the town can mean anything from a tumble down a flight of concrete steps to close encounters with vomit for the average handheld digi-snapper.
  • Pros: Ruggedized without being ugly. Waterproof up to 18 feet and resistant to extremes in cold. 720p HD-video support, plus face detection plus Microscope mode gives you plenty of robust shooting options. Comes with a carabiner.
  • Cons: Noisy images and video in low-light situations. No real whiz-bang features aside from ruggedness.

  • Conclusion: If you buy a waterproof, robust digital camera your emphasis is likely to be more on fun than looking for a picture that offers truly high end picture quality. Even so I was disappointed with the picture quality offered by the Pentax Optio W90.
  • Pros: General features - macro lights - remote control
  • Cons: Inconsistent picture quality - Slow response when taking multiple photos

  • Summary: Pentax's Optio W90 certainly looks the part and, as ever with devices of its indestructible ilk, it would be no surprise if image quality often comes second to beefy dimensions and additional padding. But this is not just a camera of outer muscle; it's one with inner strengths too.

Pentax Optio W90 compact camera

Pocket Lint
4 May 2010
  • Conclusion: It's only worth paying a £100+ premium for the W90's rough and tumble resistant padding if you're the sort of person who indulges in said rough or indeed tumble. However, even for the less adventurous the W90 is one of the more coolly styled examples of the toughened digicam, and a sight more...
  • Pros: Robust enough to allow pictures that would prove impossible for standard cameras, more compact mobile phone-like dimensions than we're used to from a camera of this ilk, plus unique creative features and image quality that's better than expected
  • Cons: You'll pay extra over a non-protected digicam, and the modest battery life is its Achilles' heel

  • Conclusion: Pentax W90 — не первый подводный компакт, попавший к нам на тест. Как и следовало ожидать, прорыва в данной сфере фоторынка не произошло: качество изображения уже который год остается на одном и том же уровне.
  • Pros: водонепроницаемый ударопрочный корпус;, видеосъемка в формате HD;, настраиваемые кнопки;, отличный макрорежим со светодиодной подсветкой.
  • Cons: низкая детализация изображения при ISO больше 200 единиц;, маленький дисплей с неудобным соотношением сторон.
