5/23/2008 10:20:00 AM Eastern


Golden, Colo. — Pentax has unveiled a waterproof digital camera that also records in HD.

The 10-megapixel Optio W60 ($329) will ship in July; it is waterproof up to 13 feet and can remain submerged for up to two hours.

It sports a 5x optical zoom lens (28mm to 140mm, 35mm equiv.), a 2.5-inch display and can also be used in sub-zero temperatures, the firm said.

The W60 can record HD video at 1,280 by 720 resolution and offers a face-detection mode capable of recognizing up to 32 faces in a frame in 0.03 seconds. A smile-capture mode will only record an image when a subject is smiling while blink detection will warn consumers when a subject’s eyes are closed.

The camera also features an auto picture mode, which automatically selects one of seven scene modes that best fit the shooting environment, along with 36MB of internal memory, panorama stitching and ISO 6,400.
