Pentax Optio W60 review
Feb 2, 2009

Image quality is pretty average. It really depends on lighting. Purchased it yesterday, it is going back today. All my pictures from last night are very blury, no matter what the program/flash/etc settings. In bright conditions no problems. In semi-bright the problem starts. In dark conditions I've never seen worse. Even from short distances you'd expect a relatively bright flash to work ok (granted, it's a point and shoot but still.... ) ... but no. I'm not talking midnight dark. I'm talking restaurant dark.

My Nikon Coolpix 4300, which is probably 7 or 8 years old, is much better all-around. Feature-wise they don't compare. Picture wise it's a non-starter.

Your money is better spent elsewhere, unless it's going to be used in light conditions. I haven't tested that (and not going to).

Problems:

EXTREMELY poor photos in semi-dark to dark conditions.
