If you have ever wondered if it was safe to take
your digital camera to the beach, on the boat,
or anywhere there's a good chance it will get
wet, the answer is probably it's not safe unless
you take much precaution. The Pentax Optio
WP (for Water Proof) is the take-anywhere
digital camera that removes that worry.
Compact, lightweight and elegant, the Pentax
WP boasts an aluminum alloy body that is less
than one inch thin, is rust resistant, has rubber
sealants at all the important points, and offers
lens protection -- in rain, in snow, in the pool,
or on the beach. The JIS Class 8 waterproof rating
confirms the Optio WP will remain watertight even
when the camera is used in water.*
*The Optio WP may be submerged
and operated up to three feet underwater for up
to 30 minutes. (1 meter = 3.28 feet)
The Pentax WP has 5MP resolution, 3x optical
zoom and macro as close as 1 cm (0.4 in.). It
is also fast with a 0.6 sec. startup and 0.05
sec. shutter release time lag. A large 2 in. LCD
monitor incorporates low reflection technology
and a backlighting system for easier viewing in
sunny, outdoor conditions
If you are looking for a really care-free digital
camera in a slim, stylish and compact body, the
Pentax Optio WP might just be what you
need. The Pentax WP is JeansPocket
Certified and obtains our OriGenial
Seal of Approval.
