Optio W30


The Optio W30 is the latest model in the PENTAX Optio W series of cameras that are capable of underwater photography without requiring a waterproof case or other accessories. With an enhanced waterproof design, the Optio W30 performance capacity has doubled to allow users to capture images underwater up to 10 feet for 2 hours. The generous 2.5 inch LCD monitor offers an LCD Bright Mode that can adjust the brightness of the screen as necessary for improved viewing in bright sunlight. Ever the perfect camera for capturing adventure in the outdoors, the Optio W30 also features both Digital and Movie Shake Reduction modes to reduce blur in both image and video capture.




  • The 7.1 megapixel CCD and 3x optical zoom in the W30 assure high resolution images.
  • The enhanced waterproof construction of the W30 allows it to be submerged down to ten feet for up to two hours.
  • The large 2.5" LCD monitor is easy to view even in direct sunlight with an Anti-reflective coating and a new Bright mode.
  • Face Recognition Auto Focus and Auto Exposure automatically detect a person's face to assure properly exposed portraits.
  • Digital Shake Reduction mode automatically selects a higher ISO setting to prevent blur due to subject or photographer movement.
  • High-quality enhanced movie mode captures at 30fps and includes digital shake reduction, interval movie mode, and a range of built-in editing functions.
  • The Optio W30 can focus less than an inch away from a subject for stunning close-up photographs
