Pentax Optio W80 review
Camera jam packed with lots of features I wanted in a take everywhere / do everything camera for my active lifestyle of canoeing, camping, skiing, hiking, etc. All-weather, High resolution, 5x optical, IS, 720p video, 3:2 aspect, interval shooting, etc...
It's a great camera when my activities can't afford the weight of my DSLR gear, but it is by no means any kind of replacement.
- 720p video is shot in motion jpeg instead of avc/h.264 which is a bummer
- grain visible even at iso 64
- camera operations are slower than my ancient Canon SD300 from 2004
- no option for 'manual-ish' long exposures like my SD300 had
