A worthy successor to the well-received W30.

SD video is smooth at 30fps with the aid of the very effective shake reduction.

Can handle water, snow, dirt and dust like it was nothing - great for outdoor, on-the-go use.

The Pentax Optio W60 is part of Pentax's "waterproof" line of cameras, offering water-tight performance to 13 feet in addition to a 10 megapixel sensor and internally contained 5x optical zoom (with a max width of 28mm). The various shooting modes include face detection (with smile and blink detection capabilities), landscape and panorama assist. The movie mode can capture 1280 resolution and works underwater. "Green" mode (Pentax's term for full automatic) picks the best scene mode and settings, for a one-touch, point-and-shoot option. Reviewers describe the image quality as good, although underwater photography requires clear water to produce optimal photos.

Features:
  • 10 megapixel CCD sensor
  • 5x optical zoom lens
  • waterproof to 13 feet
  • many scene modes
  • face detection
  • smile and blink detection
  • captures video
  • moderate wide angle (28mm)
