The Pentax Optio W80 is a digital camera with 1210 effective pixels output and utilises a 1/2.3 inch CCD sensor that is able to capture up to 12 megapixel still images and 1280 x 720 resolution video recordings.

The Pentax Optio W80 also supports a 2.5-inch 23 million color AR (anti-reflective) coated display screen, supports flash, 1/1500 to 1/4 seconds shutter speed, Scene modes, White Balance Adjustments, Exposure adjustments, and supports high speed USB2.0 interface to allow users to connect the camera to a PC.

Features

The Pentax Optio W80 is a waterproof digital camera up to the depth of 5 meters, and can operate at temperatures down to -10 C. The digital camera is also dustproof and is ideal for low temperature operation, and when users indulged in activities such as skiing, water sports, fishing and the outdoors. The Optio W80 is also shock proof up to a one meter drop and is compliant for MIL-Standard 810F. It is capable of recording high definition videos at a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixel (with 16:9 aspect ratio) at 30fps. The camera also features anti-shake features that includes a electronic image stabiliser (for still image capture) which reduces blurring due to camera shake; Blur Reduction mode which increases the sensitivity automatically according to the ambient level of brightness, allowing users to capture images with faster shutter speed to reduce blurring; and Movie SR mode which reduces camera shake during video recording mode. The Pentax Optio W80 also supports Face Recognition mode which detects up to 32 faces in one scene in 0.03 seconds. This function is also supplemented with Smile Detection (which triggers the camera to capture an image when a smile is detected) and Blink Detection (which prompts users to take the image again if a subject blinks their eyes).

  • images appearing as special characters - no images found

    my most recent images are not found by the camera or the software provided. Windows explorer finds the date folders automatically created by the camera when I take photos. However, within these folders are now other files and folders that have special characters for names instead of images. I cannot locate any photo I have taken. Please help fix this problem and recover the images! Thank you all!! ~ m1nerva
