Optio W90 in Popular Photography

Page 13 of the June issue has a short article on the camera, with a big photo of the camera splashed with water.

Mentioned early are the three LED lights around the lens, which the article says could be thought of "as a built-in ring light."

The page is the first in the issue's section called "NEXT: The hottest new stuff and the technology trends behind it." The headline is ALL-WEATHER CLOSE-UPS, and the subhead is "Round-the-lens lights make a tough camera even more versatile."

The article's writer speculates that using the LEDs while snorkeling would, because of closeness to the lens, likely result in "a lot of backscatter."

But that's not seen an overriding negative. "We want this" is a small headline on the page.

I've seen that article, too. They also seem to make a big deal of the ruggedizing/water/weatherproofness.
