Pentax has just unveiled its new OPTIO W90 camera, a rugged device that can take some serious punishment as well as crisp, quality photos.
The Pentax OPTIO W80 was an impressive camera that could pretty much withstand anything you threw at it, but its successor, the W90 puts it to shame. The new OPTIO W90 is a waterproof, shockproof, coldproof, dustproof and whatever-you-can-think-of-proof. You can use it underwater at depths of 20 feet, drop it from heights of up to 4 feet, and take photos at temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit.
But the technological specs of the Pentax OPTIO W90 are just as impressive as its sturdiness. It features a 12.1 megapixel camera with a high-resolution CCD sensor, 5x internal optical zoom lens and Digital Microscope mode, for shots as close as 1 cm.
There is however one catch when it comes to buying a Pentax OPTIO W90, you’ll probably break it by taking its sturdiness to the extreme. I know that’s what I’d do.
