Pentax Optio WP Digital Camera
Digital Camera Description
The Pentax Optio WP is a Ultra-Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 5 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an ISO 50-400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 50-400. With 5 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to 11" x 8" at 240 DPI.
This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/2000 to 1s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/2000, fast action can easily be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.
The Pentax Optio WP features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Manual Focus is also available.
The Pentax Optio WP is waterproof to a 2 meter depth for a maximum of 30 minutes. This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Pentax Optio WP and no provision to add one.
