Not only is the new PENTAX Optio W90 waterproof to 20 feet, it's shockproof, coldproof, and dustproof. (And mudproof, but that might just be a combination of waterproof and dustproof.) It takes a nice picture, too.
Its ruggedness and functionality make it a great point-and-shoot for outdoor adventures of most any kind. And I should know -- I've broken three cameras in the past three years. (One by chasm, one by rogue tide, and one by sidewalk after a recent Great American Beer Festival.)
The 12.1-megapixel Optio W90 has no moving parts -- the lens is stationary --
and features HD video capability and a digital microscope mode so you
can shoot from a mere centimeter away. It's also got a slew of the latest and greatest gizmos -- facial recognition, shake reduction, wireless compatibility, and an autofocus assist lamp.
Headquartered in Golden, PENTAX Imaging is a division of a New Jersey-based subsidiary of a Japan-based parent company. New this spring, the Optio W90 retails for about $329.
