Pentax Optio W60 Reviews

CameraLabs reviews the Pentax Optio W60 and writes;
“So if a large proportion of your photo opportunities take place in or around water, the Pentax Optio W60 comes Recommended. A decent terrestrial compact may still outperform it under normal conditions, but if there’s a regular chance of submersion or even just rain and splashes, it’s one of the best models around right now.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DCI reviews the Pentax Optio W60 and writes;
” Image quality is adequate if not outstanding, but good enough for the point-and-shoot task at hand. The fact that the camera is a bit slow on the shutter is a greater concern, but compared to no camera at all, you can learn to live with it.”

ePhotozine reviews the Pentax Optio W60 and writes;
” I can’t help but feel that the processor is oversharpening the images although there’s plenty of detail in the lower ISO settings. Disappointingly, noise is starting to show at ISO200 with the petals losing detail at ISO400..”
