Fishing Camera - Press Release
Fishing Camera - GOLDEN, Colorado (March 8, 2004) PENTAX U.S.A., Inc. has announced a second generation fully-immersable* digital camera -- the new Optio43WR. Featuring 4.0 effective megapixels, a powerful 2.8X zoom lens, and a JIS Class 7 waterproof rating that keeps the Optio43WR watertight even when the camera is rinsed, splashed or submersed in water.* So, go ahead and dunk the Optio43WR!
The latest PENTAX Optio digital camera is the perfect companion for outdoor photography in rain, snow or a day at the beach.
*The Optio43WR may be immersed up to three feet for less than 30 minutes but should not be operated underwater.
The Optio43WR is compact and fast. Measuring 3.2 x 3.0 x 1.2 inches, it weighs 7.3 ounces. A new quick start setting allows users to switch on the power in less than a second prior to shooting, and a new snap shooting mode ensures sharper results from consecutive action shots. The Optio43WR features a new high-speed CCD and innovative image processing circuitry to record movies at the high resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, and the movie quality has been enhanced with 30fps (frames per second) performance*. Movies now may be recorded to the full capacity of your chosen memory media.
*A high transfer speed SD card is required.
The camera hosts a variety of impressive features also found on other PENTAX Optio digital products including: movie mode with sound and voice memo, built-in flash, a high-precision 1.6 inch LCD monitor, an optical viewfinder, and a diverse range of shooting modes including program, landscape, night scene, night scene portrait, surf and snow, portrait, sunset, flower, fireworks, snap (automatic pan) and macro modes.
The Optio43WR power sources include two AA alkaline batteries or optional CR-V3 lithium batteries and AC adapter. As with all newer PENTAX Optio digital cameras, the Optio43WR includes the latest version of ACDSee™ 5.1 software. With a $150 value, ACDSee™ digital camera software makes it easy to retrieve, view, manage, print, enhance and share your digital photos. The Optio43WR will ship along with the software to major camera retailers in June 2004.
