Pentax Optio W20

The camera news continues today with the announcement of the Optio W20 camera from Pentax. Like its predecessor the W10, the W20 is meant for trips to the beach or pool where it would be too dangerous to risk dropping most other cameras in the water. To that end, the W20 will keep its internals dry as deep as 1.5 meters and can be used continuously underwater for half an hour. It's better on land as well: the sensor has sharpened up from 6 megapixels to 7. The camera has a raft of features to help novices take better pictures, such as a blur reduction mode that auto-adjusts ISO levels for low light and multiple auto-focus modes for action shots and portraits. There's no official word on pricing or availabilty, but it should roughly match the $300 price of the W10. See larger photos of the front and back after the jump.
