Popular pentax optio w90 now available in orange

News update from the official Pentax website:

GOLDEN, CO (June 16, 2010)…PENTAX Imaging Company has announced that the PENTAX Optio W90 will be available soon in a third color choice. As early as next month, the eleventh generation PENTAX Optio W90 will become available in orange, in addition to green and black.

Every PENTAX Optio W90 offers enhanced waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, and coldproof performance and features an inventive Digital Microscope mode with LED lighting to capture small but intriguing subjects. Designed with the look of mountaineering equipment, every Optio W90 kit includes a woven web fabric strap complete with a carabiner to attach the camera to a backpack and other outdoor gear.

Adventure photography doesn’t get any better than this. First announced in February 2010, the Optio W90 already has garnered the Outside magazine’s Gear of the Year 2010 award as well as editorial praise in other national publications including Better Homes & Gardens, Motor Boating, Men’s Journal, Popular Photography & Imaging, and Time magazine.

The rugged Optio W90 offers photographic performance, innovative features and style that surpass other outdoor compact digital cameras now available on the market.

This latest W90 will ship by July 2010 for $329.95. More information is available here: www.pentaximaging.com and product images are available here: www.pentaximaging.com/press/pressfiles.html. The orange PENTAX Optio W90 will be available exclusively on www.tigerdirect.com.

The orange is cool but the exclusiveness of selling it at Tigerdirect means I wont' be buying it.

I've got a green one on order from B&H for $288.95. I don't mind the green, can't see the camera in the photos anyway.....

I've been looking at the WXX series for a while and kept holding off, holding off, but now my kids are avid swimmers and I know I've already missed some great photos, so no more holding out, and at the B&H price, I'm excited to get it.

I'm seeing the Green/Black ones for as little as $245. I sorta want one, my Olympus P&S isn't that great. I see you are from Canuckistan, so that price is probably spot on. (Dunno)
