Pentax Optio W60

 

We test Pentax's latest waterproof compact camera.

The Pentax Optio W60 is a unique camera. It offers much the same performance, image quality and features as a typical modern compact camera, but with the added bonus of being waterproof and ruggedly built. If you’re looking for a camera for a travel...

Don't be fooled by the unassuming design – this 10MP waterproof Pentax is looking to become your favourite beach buddy

Great for landscape shots and value, but not happy with shocks and drops

Pentax Optio W60 review

 

Is the Pentax Option W60 waterproof camera a damp squib?

Good waterproof depth ; Freezeproof ; Good value

Not shockproof ; Difficult controls

This camera is good value for the features, but fiddly controls could make it less than ideal for you

Pentax Optio W60 review

 

When we first reviewed the W60 in What's New, Shopper 250, we concluded that its image quality was nothing special but the waterproofing and sub-£200 price made it good value.

A major selling point of the Pentax W60 is that it's waterproof to four metres, yet, optically, it also competes well with unsealed compacts

Is being waterproof a blessing or a curse for this compact?

The W60 is a decent camera as well as, not in spite of, the waterproof element, making it an excellent choice

Pentax has come up with the ideal companion for festival goers, travellers and water fetishists. Pentax Optio W60 is tagged with Pentax, camera and waterproof. Select a tag (Pentax, for example) to find everything on The Gadget Show about the subject.

The Pentax Optio W60 offers you a good enough reason to run into the sea giggling like a child.

Wide lens.; Good internal zoom.; Excellent portrait results.; Waterproof

Noise of the zoom and focusing is picked up by the microphone when filming

Pentax Optio W60

 

The Pentax Optio W60 seems like the ideal expedition compact – it can operate up to 4m (13ft) underwater for two hours and at extreme temperatures well below freezing. Ideal for snorkelling round reefs and duck-diving perhaps – but less useful for...
