Pentax Launches Rugged Optio W90 Compact Camera

Pentax Optio W90 Compact Camera

Pentax today announced their Optio W90, the 11th generation in its line of PENTAX Optio waterproof digital cameras built for rugged use.

The 12-megapixel Optio W90 is waterproof, dustproof, freeze-proof and shockproof. It is rated to perform under 20 feet of water, to survive a 4ft fall and to still be functioning in sub-freezing temperatures.

It also features an inventive Digital Microscope mode with LED lighting to photograph small subjects. Designed with the look of mountaineering equipment, the Optio W90 kit includes a woven web fabric strap complete with a carabineer to attach the camera to a backpack and other outdoor gear.

The Pentax Optio W90 will start shipping in April 2010 and will retail for about $330.
