Pentax Optio W90 review

Solid, well built and easy to use. I take my W90 when shooting in wet and extreme weather conditions.

The digital microscope mode is a nice feature. It activates three LED lights around the lens to produce a macro lighting effect and delivers clean, crisp 1920 x 1080 images. The IQ is acceptable but should not be compared to a P&S camera with a larger sensor. The noise level is noticable when shooting above ISO 200 but understanding it's limiitations, I'm still pleased with the overall results.
