DigiCamReview.co.ukPentax W20 review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Pentax Optio W20 review. The Pentax W20 features a waterproof design that meets the JIS Class 8 waterproof standard, enabling it to withstand up to 30 minutes of continuous operation at an underwater depth of 1.5 meters, without needing a waterproof case. The Pentax Optio W20 comes with a 2.5-inch LCD monitor that is easy to view even in sunny outdoor conditions. The LCD cover is finished with a non-glare coating and you can adjust the LCD backlight strength as needed. With the Pentax W20, you can smoothly capture movies at 30 fps (frames per second) at sizes up to 640 x 480 pixels that rival those shot with camcorders.
Pentax W20 review at DigiCamReviewPentax Optio W20 - Operation
According to Joshua Waller: "Using the camera is very straightforward, simply switch it on and start taking photos, and to change modes you simply press the mode button and select the mode you want. This is made easy to do thanks to the clear icons and explanation provided. To access some of the more advanced functions you simply press the menu button. The only slightly unexplained feature is the "Green mode" - this button can be customized to give quick access to ISO, Image size, White Balance etc, so that you don't have to enter the menu."

Pentax W20 compact camera - Saturation and Contrast
Joshua continues: "Image quality was generally good - the camera has quite good detail and good colour. Images have good saturation and contrast, with fairly low noise at the lower ISO settings. The higher ISO settings of ISO800 and ISO1600 are best avoided. Indoors photos were acceptable, however noise was noticeable in low light group photos, and red-eye was occasionally a problem. Purple fringing and colour fringing was noticed in some of the shots, but wasn't a problem in the majority of shots. The camera was quite good at focusing indoors despite the lack of a focus assist lamp."

Pentax W20 digital camera - Low light photography
"The Pentax Optio W20 found our indoor lighting slightly too dark, as can be seen in these underexposed shots, where the slowest shutter speed the camera choose was 1/4 sec. The results from the Pentax Optio W20 are fairly typical - noise at the higher ISO settings - and less detail as the camera uses fairly heavy noise reduction. For noise free images it's best to stick with the lower ISO settings, and only use the higher ISO settings (or blur reduction mode) when it's absolutely necessary. The higher ISO settings may be useful it you want a quick photo, and aren't too concerned about quality, and may be useful if you only intend to print at 6 x 4 inches.", concludes Joshua.
