This camera does macro

First photo with Pentax W80

I loved my Nikon CoolPix, but my macro shots always turned out blurred although they had looked fine on the camera screen. Very frustrating. That, and the fact that the camera fogs up in rainy weather, convinced me it was time for a new camera. Poring over camera sites, I finally came across the Pentax W80 ( and knew this camera was the one. It took a few weeks before I fully talked myself into spending the money, but I'm so glad I did. I LOVE this camera. It's waterproof and with the macro it can be as close as 1 cm from the object. Amazing.
