Steve’sDigicams 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.
“One of the most important aspects of image quality for this specific camera, is its underwater results. I was very surprised at how well it captured images in the water. Shooting samples in our bathtub of some toy frogs showed the W10 can capture sharp images, with good flash exposure as long as the subject is about 1.5 – 2 feet away. When you get closer, however, the flash is a bit too intense. When shooting underwater, the flash is a necessity, although you can turn it off if desired. Although I was not able to test it in a swimming pool, I think this would be the best environment for this model.”
