The Optio W10 from Pentax

Pentax is back in action with the new 6-megapixel Optio W10. This latest waterproof camera has a 3x zoom lens and a 2.5 inch LCD viewfinder. The Face Recognition automatic focus, claims the company, can detect the face and optimizes the settings to its specifications. The camera also has movie capture capability of 640x480 30fps and anti-shake switch which can be switched on for the perfect click. The camera can work underwater till a depth of 4.5 feet for half an hour. The camera is claimed to be dustproof but its handling would be easy with a half second switching-on time. Sounds ideal for outdoor sports photography.
