Images do speak for themselves, and in the case of these exceptional first impression images here, it looks like a resounding good start for the ruggedized, dustproof, waterproof, and shockproof all-weather digital compact, the 12MP CCD Pentax Optio W90, which I acquired recently at quite a fair and reasonable price. The underwater digital, a 2010 vintage, is one for the go-anywhere do-anything outdoorsman whose preference for the rough-and-tough is reflected by the hardware and equipment he uses.

On the W90, images are framed and reviewed on a 2.7-inch LCD with a 230,000 dots screen resolution that has a wide viewing angle and is 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 possible to 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.

The Optio W90 has a normal shutter speed range from 1/4 to 1/1,500 second, up to 4 seconds in Night Scene mode, and a self-timer with a two- or ten-second delay. Normal ISO sensitivity, from 80 to 1,600, is automatically or manually controlled. The ISO sensitivity can be expanded to ISO 3,200 or ISO 6,400 under manual control, or in the automatic Digital SR (Shake Reduction) mode, by dropping image resolution to 5MP. Exposure modes include a Green (fully automatic) button, Auto Picture, Program, and a selection of 21 scene modes, with 24 capture modes.
