Pentax Optio W20 review
This is a really excellent camera. I have owned Optio 33WR, 43 WR, and now the W20. The intervening models deleted some features that I use and need, but they were restored on the W20. I use it for general carry-around outdoors photos and particularly for macro shots. For that use, it's great.
Brilliant macros down to 1 cm from the lens, with a special soft flash mode so you can use flash with macro. Waterproof, extremely high image quality at ISO 64 and 100, and maybe even 200, quite useable at 400, amazing for a very small compact. Movie mode with digital image stabilization works well, and it lets you zoom while filming.
