Pentax Optio W20 spends winter in Colorado stream

Pentax Optio W20 spends a year in at the bottom of a Colorado stream, found by a fishing buddy and sent to owner - photos still good, camera still works, fishing story?

There could be a great Pentax story worked out of this!

Edit - the guy also posted pictures of his camera, ouch it took a beating.

You'd think....

I know it's been mentioned, the Ned Bunnell was contacted, and referred to the story and photos, buy nothing on Ned's blog.

Shame.

Excellent marketing angle pulls up in front of the Pentax house, and they choose to ignore it.

I think it's WAY cool, and definitely speaks of the equipment.
The marketing side, however....
