Pentax Optio WS80 Black and Orange

Entry level compact cameras need to match the enthusiasm of the user. For all we know, the user may be fond of deep sea diving, wildlife safari, bungee jumping, rock climbing and other such extreme sports instead of just wanting to be clicked at parties. All such people deserve cameras that are as tough as they are – cameras that are dustproof, weather proof and waterproof. One such camera made for the tough is the Pentax Option WS80, which is available in two combinations out of which the Black and Orange is the most popular one. This camera comes with resolution of 10.3mp and a zoom range of 5x.

Design and Functioning

Weighing only 124gs and with dimensions that make the Pentax Optio WS80 fit into one palm of the hand, this camera can be likened to a thick credit card. The colour combinations that this camera is available in are Black with Orange and White with Mauve. Black and Orange is, undoubtedly the more popular among the two, since the combination is considered as more becoming of those who consider themselves tough enough for a tough camera like it. The WS80 houses a 5X internal optical zoom, covering a focal length range from 35mm to 175mm, in a body that is less than an inch thick, which makes it ideal for vacations or every day adventures. Its waterproof construction can withstand depths up to 5 feet (1.5 meters); it also offers protection against rain, snow, sand, spills, and allowing full underwater photos and video. Pentax’s Shake Reduction (SR) technology is incorporated into it, which features Pixel Track SR, Digital SR, and Movie SR, stabilizing your images and video for beautiful, blur-free results. It contains internal memory of 33.6MB and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
