Pentax Optio WPi review

 

Quite soon after Pentax had introduced the first Optio WP camera, the Pentax Optio WPi was born. The Pentax WPi at first glance seems to be a compact digital camera for the day to day photography if it weren't for its ability of photographing...

Pentax Optio WPi

 

The Pentax brand has been around since 1957 and has always had a good reputation. Starting out in film, Pentax are now one of the leaders in both consumer and professional digital photography. Today we'll be reviewing their

All right, so it's not the best solution, but it's the only one to hand. However I was still unable to take shots of the back of the camera, so I asked Pentax and they kindly allowed me to use some reference pictures from their website

Pentax Optio WPi digital camera

 

Pentax has created the Optio WPi, a waterproof dustproof camera for all occasions. But has the camera got what it takes to help you snap a good shot and stay safe? We take a closer look.

Clear screen, goes underwater 1.5metres, 15 scene modes, easy to use

Sports mode not great, 6 megapixels will be overkill for most

It's not all perfect. The camera's sports mode is rather disappointing which meant that those looking to take big air pictures on the slopes may be disappointed. We would have thought given the nature of where you may want to take this picture that it...

Pentax Optio WPi review

 

Duck and dive with the Optio WPi

Completely waterproof

A bit small for composing shots ; Separate viewfinder absent ; No lens cap

The Optio WPi is only worth considering if you're determined to take underwater shots

Pentax Optio WPi review – 010

 

Described as ‘lifeproof', the Pentax Optio WPi is a perfect camera for active Kiwis. In fact, this 6-megapixel, 3x optical zoom compact will stand up to almost anything you throw at it.

If using Windows XP or Mac OS X, you’ll more than likely decline this software offering from Pentax in favour of what's already in the computer.

Pentax Optio WPi

 

Take any digital camera, submerge it in water and you'd have an expensive mistake, unless you happen to be using the Pentax Optio WPi. Unique throughout pretty much the whole digital compact market, the WPi is completely waterproof.
