Summer is coming and the hot days of lying by the pool and having pool parties will be here very soon. Summer fun usually involves someone with a camera taking pictures. The problem with taking pictures near water is that the average camera can’t get wet.
GE has announced a new digital camera called the G3WP that can not only get wet and survive, but can actually be used under water to depths of 10 feet. Power for the camera comes from an internal rechargeable battery and it has several other features that you expect in a modern point-and-shoot camera.
Other features include 12.2-megapixel resolution, 4x optical zoom, a 2.7-inch LCD, and digital image stabilization. The camera also has a slick panorama mode that lets the user pan across a scene and automatically snaps and stitches the images together. Also featured are red-eye reduction, auto scene detection and face detection. Pricing and availability for the camera is unknown.
