This review is from: Pentax Optio W90 Digital Camera - Green (12MP, 5x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (Electronics)
This camera pretty much has it all really.
The overall look is sleek and eye catching, with a brushed metal plate on the front. It comes packed with great features like pamoramic, wide photo, the standard portrait and landscape modes, lots of little different digital effects and the best macro I have ever seen in a compact! The digital microscope mode is simply stunning... The 3 LED lights on the front really work wonders when shooting up close and it rarely fails to focus on the subject. The wide screen allows shooting in 16:9 ratio (fixed with a max of 9mp) but it is a pleasure to use with great screen clarity.
The zoom is a max of x5 optical which I think is quite decent for a compact as some other brands just cant (or wont) break the x3 optical. The movie mode works well with HD recording and allows zoom while recording.
I have not used it under water yet, but if its as good under water as it is out of water, this is an all round compact that will be very hard to beat for looks, speed, functionality and ease of use.
Couldnt be happier!
