Pentax Optio WS80 Waterproof Cameras Make A Colorful Splash

Pentax have announced two new Optio WS80 waterproof point-and-shoot cameras for adventurous types which feature a 10-megapixel CCD and 5x internal optical zoom, housed within a rugged body that is less than an inch thick.

Released in two “his and her’s” versions, the WS80 comes in either black and orange or white and purple – which are both fairly appealing whatever your gender. No blue for boys and pink and sparkly for girls here.

Rated as waterproof up to 5ft (1.5m), the WS80 should be a solid performer for everyday recreation and waterside activities, but you won’t want to drop this one in the pool like Pentax’s similarly named Optio W80 – which can safely submerge to a depth of 16ft without leaks.

Including 720p video recording at 30fps and a 2.7-inch LCD, the WS80 also packs modern digicam functions we’ve come to expect such as blink and smile detection and includes image stabilization on both video and stills.

The Pentax Optio W80 is available now on pre-order from, where you can snap one up for $249.95. Shipping begins in September.
