    I'm looking at the Pentax W30 or the Olympus 770SW. Anyone got experience or opinions with either? Thx

    Pentax....I have the W20. Great pictures, good video, taken it diving in the ocean, many underwater fish/kid photos, dropped it a couple times, still waterproof and working/looking super. :)

    Right now, I'm leaning towards the Pentax unless someone comes up with a real good reason to go Olympus. I think I saw in one of his posts that Sam uses the Pentax W30. Maybe he'll jump in here with details.

    If the W30 is anything like the W20, you'll be happy with it. I do wish it was rated for deeper depths, but I've taken it for quick dives down to 20ft or so, snapped a shot and come right back up without issue.

    Whatever camera you buy, I'd recommend getting one of these...
    Floating Neckstrap

    I cut one of these straps half and attach it to the camera everytime I fish. Were it not for the float, I'd have had to go for a swim the one time it fell overboard. ;D
