    When my Pentax Optio W10 died last November, I bought the newer model Optio W30, expecting it to be at least as good as the W10 if not better. I was wrong. it is not a better camera for several reasons. The Optio W10 was easy to operate, even with cold and wet hands, and […]

I certainly wouldn’t recommend taking you expensive SLR 🙂 I have search a bit on the net, and apparently there are only two producers of simple waterproof digital cameras: Pentax and Olympus.
