Digital Camera Description

The Pentax Optio W80 is a Ultra-Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 12 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an ISO 64-1600 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 64-1600. With 12 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/1500 to 4s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/1500, fast action cannot be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

The Pentax Optio W80 is waterproof to a 5 meter depth. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. There is no viewfinder on the Pentax Optio W80 and no provision to add one.
