Camera Labs has reviewed the latest waterproof camera from Pentax, the Optio W60, that competes directly with the tough Olympus 1050SW compact camera. Camera Labs has compared both the Optio W60 and the 1050SW.

Some key features for the Pentax Optio W60:
-Waterproof down to 4 meters for 2 hours
-5x optical zoom (28-140mm)
-10 megapixel sensor
-2.5″ LCD screen
-ISO sensitivity from 50 to 6400 (ISO 3200 and 6400 with 5 megapixels)

Camera Labs ends up giving the Pentax Optio W60 a “Recommended” 85% score. The camera is very capable of taking pictures underwater and has pretty good specifications compared to its competition.
The only downsides are lack of image stabilization, below average video function and low quality lens cover.
Seems like a very good camera if you are interested in underwater photography.
