Pentax Optio WS80 review
Feb 25, 2010

Do not buy Pentax Optio WS80, horrible image quality!
This camera has a high noise level on every image you
take, no matter the ISO settings you change.
Even the claimed HD video is terrible, it has so much grain
and noise you will be surprised.
I've used now about five compact cameras from different
brands for the last ten years, this one is a huge step back,
it's a complete flaw!

Problems:

Short battery life, you need to charge it every day,
even if you don't use it too much!

Images with horrible noise with any ISO setting, it's
impossible to get the picture look good in any
conditions of light or even programmed or auto
settings.

No HD video - if you call a crappy stream of noise a HD
movie, well, Pentax, you must be joking.

There seems to be a serious problem with these WS80
cameras, the images are so bad it reminds me of 2002
when my Mustek gSmart took even better images with
2Mpix sensor!
