Has anyone bought/used the Optio W20 yet? Am considering it as my next camera as would like something in the 7mp range with a decent sized LCD screen. I wasn't previously thinking of a waterproof camera, but I think that was partly because I didn't realise they existed that didn't need a big plastic case!

It would seem that if this wasgoing to give a similar photo quality and generally easy user experience to cameras like the Casio Elixim and the Sony with the big screen; then the waterproof/dustproof feature can only be an added bonus?!

Any thoughts or experiences you guys have with this camera would be great.

Hi Dan!

I bought the W20 for next year's snorkelling holiday. Have used Olympus Stylus Verve in underwater case previously. The W20 has a little more manual control, and the fact that it doesn't need a case for underwater means less complication and condensation and better viewing of the bigger LCD. My main camera is the Sony H1, but I'm finding I'm carrying round the W20 with me wherever I go just in case. Still experimenting with it.

There's a photo from the W20 on my site at www.flickr.com/photos/philllister

Seems like a good little camera. Looking forward to trying it out underwater!

All the best
