We gave Pentax's latest waterproof camera, the Pentax Optio W10, a thorough testing both in the lab and out in the elements, and despite the compromises, we found it a good solution for capturing playful snapshots outdoors.
The Pentax Optio W10's main selling point is its sturdy yet attractive waterproof and dustproof design. Its 2.5 inch LCD and 6 megapixel sensor update the line with more of what the market's demanded, though there are still compromises in terms of image quality.
With its fully-automatic exposure system, the Optio W10 takes reasonably good pictures on dry land under adequate lighting, though its high ISO performance leaves something to be desired. Still, the Optio W10 is truly fun to use -- in, around, and under the water, and both video and stills captured in and around the water were pretty good.
