Pentax Optio W90 review
Had the camera for a couple of days.
What i like:
Very solid feeling camera. Very rugged.
Interface is very good. Half pressing the shutter will get you out any menu or playback mode into a shooting ready mode. I love the built in intervalometer mode. W90 does an excellent job with macro photography. Nice wide angle image quality. Tons of great features. Green shortcut button is very handy. A grat camera for those days where you don't know what you may run into. (rain, snow, mudslide, apocolypse)
Auto-bracket exposure mode works nice and fast, and requires only one shutter button click. (Press and hold)
Some of the built in post editing features are great.
Auto ISO limit settings.
What i didn't like:
Lack of manual exposure mode or A or S mode.
No RAW files format.
Noisy above ISO 200, but a film-like structure.
Extreme end of telephoto range not very sharp.
Video mode works lousy with any light sources coming into frame.
Be sure to carefully read all of the instructions concerning underwater shooting.
No problems so far only 2 days in...will update later.
Tried it in a few inches of sea water...no leaks yet.
