Comments about Pentax Pentax Optio W80 Waterproof Digital Camera (Azure Blue):

Did not really believe the hype till I got it and really used it. It is unbelieveable! Forget those throw away disposable underwater cameras and the heartache of missing the shot. You won't with this easy to use workhorse. Don't worry about getting rough with it. It truely is shockproof .
