Pentax Optio W90 announcement clippings

By further enhancing the airtightness of the camera body, PENTAX has upgraded the Optio W90's underwater picture-taking performance to six meters (compared to five meters for its predecessor) and for up to two hours of continuous operation. Along with its outstanding IPX8 (or JIS Class 8) waterproof performance, the Optio W90 also offers exceptional shockproof capacity to withstand a fall from a height of 1.2 meters (one meter for its predecessor) without damage to the body, thanks to its new body design and refined internal mechanisms. In addition to these characteristics, the Optio W90 comes with remarkable dustproof performance equivalent to IP6X (or JIS Class 6) and exceptional coldproof performance for reliable operation at temperatures as low as –10°C, making it a perfect choice for active photographers who venture to shoot pictures in demanding outdoor conditions.
