Pentax Optio WPi – Review @ DigitalCameraReview

DigitalCameraReview has posted their review on Pentax Optio WPi, a 6.0 Megapixel point-and-shoot water resistant digital camera with 3x optical zoom and 2.0″ LCD screen.


“The Pentax Optio WPi is a great choice if you’re looking for a waterproof camera (and don’t need to go to great depths). The waterproof, dustproof body has a rugged feel, but a stylish look. The camera also takes good, 6 megapixel images in a variety of conditions. I experienced good exposures in tough lighting situations, and good, if a bit saturated, colors. Noise levels were acceptable and the flash was enough to illuminate dark, normal-sized rooms.

The Pentax Optio WPi is a great option for someone who thinks they’ll need a camera in wet conditions. For example, I would love to take my digital SLR fly fishing with me, but it’s not going to happen. Having a waterproof Optio WPi would be great for capturing an image of the one that didn’t get away and then videoing the release underwater.”
