Pentax's waterproof camera


Definitely the coolest camera at CES 2005 is the OptioWP from Pentax. The five mega pixel compact snapper not only looks the part with a very tasteful brushed aluminium finish, it is waterproof and can take images in up to three metres of water without any additional housing.

Other features include a 3x optical zoom, 2inch LCD screen and 10MB of internal memory. Even better it is pretty cheap too with UK prices when it ships in March expected to around £300.
