Pentax Unveils Optio W80 Rugged Digital Compact Camera

Pentax Optio W80 Rugged Digital Compact Camera

Pentax today unveiled their new Optio W80 shock- and water-proof digital compact camera. The company said the Optio W80’s waterproof design withstands depths of up to 16 feet (5 meters) to protect from rain and spills, as well as allowing full underwater photos and video for up to two hours. On dry land, the rugged, shockproof design protects against drops of up to 3.3 feet to protect the camera from hard use and occasional spills.

Touting 12.1 megapixels, a 5X internal optical zoom (equivalent to 28-140mm), a slim one inch body, and a wide angle 28mm lens, the Optio W80 offers an expanded perspective that is ideal for landscape, group and more confined shots.

The Optio W80 will be available in July 2009 for US$300, in Cardinal Red, Azure Blue and Gunmetal Gray colors.
