Pentax Optio W60

The Pentax Optio W60 (street: $299) is the newest waterproof compact digital camera in the W series. This one packs 10 megapixels, a 5x 28-140mm (equivalent) internal zoom lens, and 720p HD video. We'll get this one on the test bench soon enough, but our summer intern Shannon Fitzgerald decided to take it for a field test first! Check out the video of the camera in action, at the pool and at the beach.
