The Optio W90 digital camera from Pentax is the 11th generation Optio waterproof camera, and it offers the strongest set of features thus far.
The Optio W90 has a nice set of "tough" features, making it a good option for nature photography. It works in up to 20 feet of water depth, can survive a fall of 4 feet, and can operate in temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, the Optio W90 includes a "microscope" mode -- using an LED light that allows it to focus on items as close as 0.39 inches, which is great for close-up nature photos -- and a fabric strap with a carabiner for attaching it securely to a backpack.
The photography features found with the Optio W90 are good, too, as it offers 12.1 megapixels of resolution, a 5X optical zoom lens, 720p HD video resolution, an HDMI port, and a 2.7-inch LCD screen.
The Optio W90 is currently available with an MSRP of $329.95. (Compare Prices) The camera body is mostly black, with two choices in trim color -- black and pistachio green -- both shown here.
