For the CCD enthusiast, the Pentax Optio W90, a vintage 2010 CCD go-anywhere camera with a 12MP sensor and a 5x optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent 28mm wide-angle to a 140mm telephoto lens, might just be the right tonic for your go-anywhere outdoors, for just sitting in the rain, or submerged to depths of up to 20 feet for as long as two hours. The compact minuscule is just as well dustproof and can withstand a drop from four feet onto 5 cm-thick plywood.

The camera has a normal shutter speed range from 1/1,5000 to 1/40 second, or up to 4 seconds in Night Scene mode, a standard ISO speed rating from 80-1600, or up to 3,200 or 6,400 by dropping image resolution to 5MP in automatic Digital SR mode, and a self-timer with two- or ten-second delay. The aperture varies from f/3.5 to f/5.5 across the zoom range. Exposure modes include Green (fully automatic), Program, Auto Picture, and a wide selection of scene modes, exposure metering is by TTL Multi-Segment, Center-Weighted, or Spot metering, with exposure compensation in 1/3EV steps.

Images are framed and reviewed on a 2.7-inch LCD with a 230,000 dots screen resolution with a wide viewing angle, finished in anti-reflective coating. Autofocusing is by a 9-point contrast detection autofocus system, with face detection that can recognize up to 32 individual faces and three pet faces with Smile Capture and Blink Detection to ensure portraits look their best. Focusing is as close to just one centimeter in Super Macro mode, and down to 10 centimeters in standard Macro mode. Three LED lights around the lens provide illumination in Macro mode shooting.
