Go ahead and swim with the OptioWP! The camera features a rust-resistant metal exterior, rubber sealants, and lens protection that opens up a new world of photographic potential. Users may shoot in rain, in snow, in the pool, or on the beach to capture outdoor scenes and adventure. The JIS Class 8 waterproof rating confirms the OptioWP will remain watertight even when the camera is used in water.*
*The OptioWP may be submerged and operated up to three feet underwaterfor up to 30 minutes. (1 meter = 3.28 feet)
The Power of 5.0 Effective Megapixels and a 3X Optical Zoom Lens
Despite the elegant design, the OptioWP captures delicate detail with 5.0 effective megapixels, while the 3X zoom lens (equivalent to a 38-114mm lens in 35mm format) captures both expansive scenery shots and tightly composed portraits without protruding from camera body.
Generous LCD Monitor
The OptioWP features a large, low reflection 2.0 inch monitor. Incorporating low reflection technology and a backlighting system, the OptioWP LCD is easy to view even in sunny, outdoor conditions. The LCD monitor also features a power saving mode to extend battery life.
the start-up time of the OptioWP is less than a second (0.6) and the shutter release time lag is 0.05 seconds.
Green Mode Standard Setting
A "green mode" button sets all camera settings to a standard combination (with the exception of the zoom setting) for easy setting. The green button also offers four short cut function combination settings from a choice of recording image size, image quality, white balance, AF area, focus limit, exposure compensation, sensitivity, sharpness, saturation, contrast and ?off.?
The OptioWP offers a shooting Mode palette that displays icons for up to 15 shooting modes (out of a selection of 20). Also, the green button may be used to select icons and provide a text explanation of the function it represents without referring to the instruction manual. Further, the Mode palette simplifies playback modes. The palette itself is translucent, so the playback icons are displayed directly over the desired image for easy selection.
Synchronous Sound Record
A Synchronous Sound Record mode, the OptioWP enables users to record up to 20 seconds of sound to accompany a still shot to record memorable moments in a much more special manner.
Note: Upon selecting Synchronous Sound Record mode, the OptioWP starts recording sound before shutter release and stops 10 seconds after the shutter release button is pressed. The OptioWP then attaches the resultant audio file to the still shot.
Continuous AF and Tracking AF
In addition to continuous AF*, the OptioWP features a new tracking AF function available in Pet and Sport modes to automatically monitor movement of subjects within the frame and maintain sharp focus.
*Normally, focusing is achieved by driving the lens with the shutter release button depressed halfway. During continuous AF use, however, the lens continues to readjust for focus at all times. This allows optimal focus to be achieved as soon as the shutter release is pressed down fully.
Digital Photo Frames
The OptioWP offers three innovative digital photo frames to recorded images for viewing and printing.
A new recovery function on the OptioWP reclaims any images and audio files that are erased unintentionally.
Movie Editing Function
A movie editing function allows recorded movies to be edited in the camera. One frame of a movie may be stored as a still image* or a selected movie may be divided into different frames for storage in separate files. Two movies may also be combined into one.
* Storable still image size depends on the recording size of a movie.
