Digital Camera Pentax Optio Wpi


I have been very impressed with some of the underwater photos taken by visitors to this site using the Pentax Optio Wpi. I’m thinking of buying one and would love to hear what you think about using it as your “land” camera as well. Would be great to see some Dominican land shots taken with the camera.


how would you know it was a pentax?


lhunt posted his Casa del Mar snorkel pictures and told us that he’d used the Optio, but he had another camera that he used predominantly for his land pictures.

Travelbugg who traveled with me last week has the Optio too. She used it for all of her pictures but I haven’t seen the results or heard her report. I THINK she was happy though!

Have you looked at dpreview.com? http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Pentax/pentax_optiowpi.asp There are 8 reviews there that you can read.

This is the camera I have, with the separate underwater housing. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Canon/canon_a620.asp It’s a bit cumbersome in the housing, but I was happy with the underwater results and extremely happy with the out of water shots!



Just received a coupon book in the mail from Costco. It was this camera on sale for $50.00 off from May 29 to June 4. In Canada.

Looks like a nice camera!
Happy Travels!
