Pentax Optio W80 announcement clippings

The PENTAX Optio W80 digital compact camera. In addition to its outstanding waterproof, dustproof and coldproof capabilities - which allow for up to two hours of continuous underwater photography at a depth down to five meters - the new Optio W80 offers outstanding shockproof performance to withstand a fall from a height of one meter. Despite its compact dimensions, the Optio W80 features an optical 5X zoom lens covering focal lengths from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent in the 35mm format to approximately 28mm wide angle to 140mm telephoto). And it captures beautiful, flawless movie clips at 16:9 high-definition TV proportions (1280 x 720 pixels) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second.
