The Pentax Optio W90 is a compact digital camera that is waterproof, shockproof, coldproof, and dustproof. Featured is a 12.1MP CCD sensor; a 28mm wide-angle, 5X optical zoom lens; and a 2.7” LCD display with a widescreen aspect ratio. As an entry-level camera, the W90 camera can capture 720p high-definition video, but only in Motion JPEG (vs AVCHD). Also included are a myriad of preset scenes and settings (e.g., 9-Point AF, Face Detection, Blink Detection), an autofocus lamp for quickly and accurately focusing in difficult lighting conditions, and an HDMI output. Unfortunately, is limited by a short-life battery, the inability to capture moving objects without encountering blurs, and a badly placed Flash (it’s right where people put their finger to hold the camera).
