Good deal on a waterproof camera

Found a good deal on Amazon for a waterproof camera - a Pentax Optio W80 for about $175! Normal sale price is more like $250, and I think retail is about $300. Here is a link to the cameras at Amazon.

I have had an older version, the W20, for many years now and have been very happy with it. So I have ordered one of these guys as an upgrade for myself. It has arrived and I look forward to trying it out this weekend.

To see how the older W20 worked, I used it as a comparison point for reviews I did of the Oregon Scientific ATC-2K and the GoPro Hero 3.

Note - the prices aren't listed on the main screen, and it does seem to change some (I got it for $170, with free delivery and a free memory card). I suggest adding all of the ones that don't have prices listed to your Cart, then viewing the cart to see which is cheapest (removing all the rest).

Wow! You've got another waterproof one? I'd like to see pics with the new one. Is it 1,000 picel or more? I'd like to know the detail specs also.
新しいカメラ、カッコイイですね~!写真が見られるのを楽しみにしています。

Well, google tool bar doesn't have spell checker any more. It makes me inconvenience! I'm not good at typing them correctly.

ピーターさん
昨年までの2年間色々あって、大変でしたが今は少しずつ、元に戻そうと努力しています。
カメラの画素の表示方法が分からなくて1000と書いてしまいましたが、「10メガピクセル以上ですか?」と聞きたかったのです。10.1メガピクセルで防水なら、かなり良い画像が期待できますね。

動画も撮れるのですか?もしそうなら、水中の画像も楽しみにしています。
素敵な写真がアップされるのを楽しみにしていますよ~!
