The Pentax Optio W90 is a 12.1 megapixel camera with a 5x Wide Angle Zoom and a 2.7-Inch LCD screen. The W90 is a waterproof, dust-proof, cold-proof, bump-proof digital camera designed for people who want a compact camera capable of handling just about anything you can throw at it.
This camera was first introduced to me by Ted Schredd (the author of my favorite bicycle touring book of all time: “The Cycling Adventures Of Coconut Head“) who is currently using the camera on his bike tour down the length of the United States.
Ted produced the video review you see above for the Pentax Optio W90 while on his bike ride from Summerland, British Columbia (Canada) to Los Angeles, California (USA). As you can see by watching the video above, there are some definite advantages to having a camera such as then when traveling by bike (or traveling in general).
