Digitalcamerareview have posted a review of the Pentax Optio W10, a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) waterproof point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 16.02.06) with 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 38mm – 114mm) and a 2.5″ LCD screen.
“I was very impressed with the image quality of the Optio W10. Images showed accurate color and good exposure in a variety of conditions. Detail in the images was excellent throughout the entire frame. Chromatic aberration was very hard to notice, but I did see some reddish edges when looking very closely at some images containing some high contrast areas. Macro performance was also very impressive, showing good detail on a lot of close-up shots.”
In conclusion they write;
“Pros: Waterproofing, Good battery life, Easy operation, Excellent image quality
Cons: LCD hard to see in bright conditions, Slow shutter lag when focus lock is not achieved first”
