Pentax Intros Optio W90 Digicam for Punishing (and Clumsy) Photographers

If you can dish it, the Pentax Optio W90 digicam can probably take it. In fact, there's not much this rugged eleventh-gen Optio can't take, including water, shock, and extremely low temps.

According to Pentax, you can submerge the W90 in up to 20 feet of water, making it a suitable option for snorkeling and pool parties alike. It's also shockproof up to 4 feet, and able to withstand sub-freezing temps in case you find yourself chasing the abominable snowman, banished to Siberia, or living in Michigan.



Outside of its rugged design, the Optio W90 also boasts a 12.1 megapixel sensor, 2.7-inch LCD screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio, Eye-Fi wireless SD memory card connectivity, the ability to capture 720p HD video at 30 frames per second, and an HDMI port so you can view all your extreme scenes on your swank HDTV.



Pentax says it will start shipping the Optio W90 in April for $330, mud (at least we hope that's what it is) not included.

Wow for a camera with a makeup like this one that's a great price to. It is higher MP capability than my canon as well (which is 2 years old now), as well as having other features above and beyond it at pretty close to the same price. It is also able to withstand great amounts of device stress the water depth alone is amazing for an electronic operational device for this price.

This Pentax w90 seems very promising. I asked Pentax if the batter life will be better than the w80 (which was very poor). They said it will out last the older w30 (which was good but faded over a long period of time). They also noted that the size is equivalent to the w30 because the w80 seemed a little too boxy.
This Pentax w90 fits our Surf Camera case perfectly for water sports or ski trips.
