If you are wondering how to take that incredible picture of colourful fishes swiming in the beach just in front of your house :-), well, what about getting a new waterproof camera?. The good news is that PENTAX has announced the latest Optio Waterproof model so there is no excuses now to do it (unless you can’t swim of course or you don’t have a house by the beach… ).
The waterproof design of the Optio W30 meets the JIS Class 8 waterproof standard, enabling it to withstand up to 30 minutes of continuous operation at an underwater depth of up to 2 meters. This camera is the latest model in the PENTAX Optio W series that are capable of underwater photography without requiring a waterproof case or other accessories, which is something I, and many people, really appreciate.
As well as the previous OptioW20, this model features a Blur Reduction High ISO mode that selects ISO up to 1600, and an upgrade to 7.1 effective megapixels to offer improved image quality in a fun, easy-to-handle package.
In summary, it is good product for this coming holidays, so you can enjoy incredible underwater pictures without having to deal with external protection for your brand new gadget.
