Optio W20 is a compact digital camera featuring excellent waterproof performance with a slim, flat body design. The W20 camera is fully capable of underwater photography without requiring a waterproof case or other accessories. The waterproof design of the Optio W20 meets the JIS Class 8 waterproof standard, enabling it to withstand up to 30 minutes of continuous operation at an underwater depth of up to five feet. The Optio W20 also meets the JIS Class 5 dustproof standard, and is ideal for use skiing, marine sports, fishing, and enjoying other outdoor events.

The Optio W20 includes a 3X optical zoom lens that covers focal lengths from 6.3 to 18.9 mm (equivalent to 38 to 114 mm for 35mm film) and features a ???‚??folding???‚?? optical system so the lens never protrudes from the camera while zooming. The 7.0 effective megapixels produces extremely high-quality prints with crisp detail even when the photo is greatly enlarged.

The Optio W20 comes with a 2.5 inch LCD monitor that is easy to view even in sunny outdoor conditions. The LCD cover is finished with a non-glare coating and features adjustable LCD backlight strength. The camera also has a Power Saving mode that automatically dims the backlight to save battery power.

The Pentax Optio W20 will be available in September with a price of under $300.

The Sanyo VPC-CA6 Xacti Digital Media Camera records both 6 megapixel still images and 640×480 resolution digital video in a weather resistant compact design. It combines the functionality of a digital camera and a digital camcorder. Different than a standard digital camera that shoots short video clips, the VPC-CA6 combines the functionality of both a digital camera and a digital camcorder in one small, lightweight camera. Splash-proof water resistance makes it practical to point and shoot even around the pool or at the beach. It’s also rugged enough to safely take photos or shoot video with wet hands while fishing, hiking, boating, skiing or enjoying many other outdoor leisure activities. While remarkably water resistant, the CA6 should never be immersed in water.

This powerful little device easily records both 640×480 resolution video and 6-megapixel digital still images, all of which are handily stored to a standard SD flash memory card (sold separately). Designed to meet the international protection level IPX4, the VPC-CA6 is ???‚??protected???‚?? from splash in all directions.

2″LED Screen
The CA6 features an incredibly clear 2-inch, Sanyo-developed Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with 210,000 total pixels. The display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on an axis that allows you to take great video or still images from otherwise-difficult-to-view positions.

6.37 megapixel CCD image sensor
Inside the CA6 digital media camera is an advanced 6.37-megapixel (total) CCD image sensor to capture high-quality digital videos (at a very smooth and natural 30 fps!), with full-range stereo sound.

Capture still and High-Definition Movie Images Simultaneously
The Xacti CA6 enables simultaneous shooting of 6-megapixel still images and 640 x 480-pixel video clips with a simple press of the shutter button during the shooting of a movie clip. Users will never need to miss another precious photo opportunity. (Depending on the mode used to take still images, simultaneous video clip shooting may be interrupted. While shooting video clips, using the digital image stabilizer may change the angle of view for still images.)

Built-In Image Stabilization
The SANYO Xacti CA6 comes with a sophisticated image stabilizer. Using a proprietary SANYO algorithm, the CA6 automatically compensates for distracting up-and-down or side-to-side camera movement, keeping your subject steady and easy to follow. It accurately distinguishes between unintentional camera shake and deliberate camera movement. This handy feature operates in both wide-angle and telephoto modes, giving every shot a solid, professional-looking feel.

5x Optical Zoom Lens
The CA6 digital media camera features a highly efficient 5x optical zoom with a bright maximum aperture of f/3.5. Consisting of xx groups and xx total lenses, the CA6???‚?„?s lens provides a fantastic field-of-view with a 38-190 mm range (35 mm equivalent). Combined with the 12x digital zoom, the CA6 provides up to 60x zooming capability.

Super Fast Start-Up
The Xacti CA6 includes a high-capacity SANYO brand lithium-ion battery. The DBL-L20U is a High voltage 3.7V battery designed to work with the SANYO Xacti CA6 camera. High energy density design minimizes the battery size and weight, making it perfect for use in small portable cameras. The DBL-L20 is designed to resist memory accumulation so it provides a full charge every time.
