Pentax Optio W80 review
Very nica P&S with no manual or priority exposition but a lot of programs and manual control over a lot of parameters instead.
Slim and light but very sturdy.
Lens is protected by a fixed glass that is slightly arretrated to protect it from scratches.
Lens is sharp and versatile and resolution is fine. Some evident barrel distortion at wide end of the lens.
There is a high amount of noise in pictures, even at 400 ISO, easy to filter in PS anyway.
Not a real problem if you do even a minimal automatic postprocessing.
Very good 720P movies, but as in many other cameras no optical zooming during movie.
Buy it if you want a versatile P&S with a rugged body and like not protuding lens cameras. Manual focus and panfocus very good for candid photography.
