Very sharp underwater. if there is anything other than pool wall in the shot, AWB does very well.

300 cool points to the first person who figures out what this is.

Posting here because no one knows or cares about Pentax P&S forum
Yes they do -- if they want to complain about their S4 problems(My S4i was still working last time I used it).

Looks like you (and Pentax) have a winner here in this one - hope it holds up.

Pentax binoculars are among the best, too-- I wonder what the merger bodes for those.

Very innovative series of pictures. You are very talented in focusing / portraying what you need to express. P&S has progressed so much these few years. Above water performance it matches the dslr of 3 yrs ago.
I may not want it as I cannot figure it out how often I will be shooting underwater.
There seems to be concern about noise. Well underwater, it is very quiet indeed.
Just kidding.

Thanks for all the nice comments! I really appreciate them.

LOL at daniel's line!

Bit of a funny story here too. My sister is looking for a digicam. She asked me to help her out a bit. Asked her if she's looked at the Pentax A30... she said no because reviews say pentax cameras are noisy at night. She said it with a confused look on her face.... After prodding her I found out that she thought it meant cameras emitted a loud buzz or chugging sound when focusing at night!


Anyway...

So I am basically completely satisfied with the W30. What I'm going to buy next is a silicone skin for it, to protect the body a bit. This would help cut down on scratches and depending on the construction could keep fingers away from the door latches.

I also had an idea about making it float, but I'll try it before posting it.


I contemplated the usefulness of a wp camera. In my case it had three other things going for it 1-taking pictures in the rain, and 2-taking it to the beach, where it won't be damaged by sand or water, and 3- Taking it with me on a night on the town.... a camera impervious to water is also impervious to beer!

Seeing how good this is, I can only imagine how much better the A30 is. Might pick one up once the price drops. SR is a godsend for these lil P&S models. What a shame Hoya is obliterating the P&S business.
