I have been impressed with my Pentax Optio underwater camera that I purchased several years ago.It takes excellent underwater photography without the need for a bulky camera case.The camera itself is waterproof but the latest underwater cameras offer higher resolution, high definition motion video, and expanded features and functions in addition to more powerful zoom.I have been waiting for the latest incarnation of the Pentax and they just released the Optio W60.I decided to shop for it on BizRate.com and Amazon.com.These two sites offer a wide array of products for your on line shopping needs or desires.

BizRate offered five merchants to choose from. Prices varied closely from $269.00 to $299.99.All merchants offered up good detail about the product, enough to make an informed decision.I found all merchants were authorized Pentax dealers and sold only full warrantee new products.Nothing that was refurbished or repackaged.Moving on to Amazon.com, they offered five merchants with prices from $270.00 to $296.17.Amazon provided a positive rating for each merchant that I liked.I was able to view other customer's remarks about their buying experience.

I noticed that of the two shopping sites, I preferred BizRate over Amazon for this reason; I was able to access product information easier than on the Amazon site.Selecting a merchant for product information took me back to a general screen, displaying many cameras and forcing me to relocate the product whereas BizRate allowed me to access individual merchants for information concerning the product.I like this feature better and am glad that I made the choice I did.

I have had underwater cameras before and am seriously impressed with the features and long life that Pentax gives its customers.  They sure make their products with quality while offering great prices for their customers to afford the camera.  If I were to recommend an underwater camera to my friends and family, the Pentax Optio would definitely be my number one choice.
