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.
