Pentax Optio W80 - Azure Blue

Underwater photography, which until a few years was thought to be impossible without expensive equipment, has become increasingly democratized with the advent of waterproof cameras. And what better colour should a camera that can be used underwater come in, than the colour of the sea Azure Blue? This lightweight and easy to use compact camera comes with a resolution of 12.1 mp and a zoom range of 5x comes in excellent colours that are aimed at the newest generation.

Design and Functioning

Rather than going for a sleek or fluid design, the Pentax Optio W80 chose to go for a solid, tough and rugged design, which goes well with its image as a tough camera that is made for those who travel with their cameras to the most inaccessible corners of the world. It comes in colours like Metallic Silver and Blood Red too, along with the usual Midnight Black, but the most alluring colour that it comes in is the Azure Blue, since it represents the true purpose of this camera taking pictures under the water. This camera comes under the tough range of compact cameras that are dustproof, freezeproof, water resistant and can withstand pressure too. The 35mm equivalent of this camera is 28mm to 140mm. This lightweight camera it weighs only 126gms comes with a minimum shutter speed of 4 seconds and a maximum of 1/1500th of a second. With ISO ratings ranging from 64 to a maximum of 6400 during lowlight conditions, this camera is compatible with SD/SDHC cards for storage and comes with an internal memory of 34MB.
