 Thinking about our past two photo contest and anticipating the next one got me thinking about purchasing a new water camera.   As I was searching the web I came across this new camera by Pentax which won outside Magazines 2010 Gear of the Year award.  This camera seems to be extremely rugged and does just about everything.  

Adventure photography doesn’t get any better than this. The rugged Optio W90 offers photographic performance, innovative features and style that surpass other outdoor compact digital cameras now available on the market.
