Unfortunately, most cameras can’t withstand the raw elements of a snowy winter day or a rainy spring one. You might as well just throw your money away. So how could a camera possibly survive one day let alone years on the range?

Folks, meet the Pentax W90 digital camera. In addition to providing the normal bells and whistles of today’s pocket ready digital cameras, this baby is waterproof up to 20 feet, coldproof to sub-freezing temperatures, dustproof from sand to silt, and shockproof to survive a four foot drop.

Additional features include:

• 12.1 megapixel sensor and wide angle 5X optical zoom

• 720p HD video capture at 30 frames per second.

I personally liked the easy to maneuver menu, good picture clarity and its’ ability to withstand nature’s elements without so much of a whine or gripe.

MSRP: $330

In closing, the Pentax leads me to believe that I may never again blurt the phrase “man, wish I had my camera to capture that!”
