Hi1 After a long search of cameras I decided have decided to buy pentax W 10.

Now before final decision I need to clear some suspicions.

1) Is it a good buy

2)Is it really noisy while zooming in video.

3)Wat is the movie time with 640x480 30fps for 1GB card.

4) can v make movie contnuously

5) Can v compare the movie with a camcorder

6) Is it really water and dust proof

7) Can v use it as webcam and pc cam

Pls help me decide.

Thank You

1. Yes, available under $260, and with the W20 on the way could drop a bit more.
2. Any compact camera will be noisy when zooming in video. Most don't allow the zoom to operate in movie mode for that reason.
3. 30 minutes at highest quality, 60 minutes at low quality.
4. yes (up to available memory).
5. don't think so.
6. Yes, to a limit. It can go underwater up to 5 feet for up to half a hour.
7. I don't know.

Have you read the review?
