    Default Want a waterproof camera? Read this article first.

    Found this new article on DP Review. It is a group test of leading waterproof cameras. Very informative for anyone looking at a waterproof camera. I see post here on the subject occasionally so thought I would share this for anyone interested. Click on the below link. Be sure to note the "Introduction" in the box up top. This informs you that this is page #1 (of about 18). Click on "Introduction" after reading the first page, then you scroll down to the remainder of the lengthly article.

    I read this article when it was first posted, since I am still contemplating buying one. But their bottom line is: Optical systems seem to be compromised in all waterproof cameras made today, with Pentax perhaps having the best image quality so far. I've also read that Panasonic has a waterproof camera in the works. I think I'll wait to see what they come up with.

    Default I vote for the Pentax...

    I bought a Pentax W30 a few years back and love it. Just bought a pink Pentax W60 a few hours ago. Stop laughing, it is for Mrs. Danattherock




    Below are some pics from the Pentax W30...
