Kenko Tokina is becoming a lot of people’s favorite company thanks to its cheap, but reliable products. A new device has just been launched and it consists of a waterproof compact camera.

The new Kenko Tokina DSC880DW can withstand the pressure 3-meter depths for up to an hour. After that, photographer should get out and leave the camera to dry for a while, in order to jump back again.
An interesting feature of the device is represented by its two LCD screens. The one in the back measures 2.7-inch and it can be used for shooting whatever is in front of the lens. However, a secondary 1.8-inch display is found in the front of the camera and it is quite useful for underwater portrait photography.
Photographers have full 8 megapixels at their disposal
Tokina’s new shooter comes packed with a 1/3.2″-type CMOS image sensor capable of capturing 8-megapixel photos and a 1.8mm f/2.8 lens, providing a 35mm equivalent of 14mm, with 4x digital zoom.

Images can be stored on microSDHC cards of up to 32GB and microSD cards of up to 2GB respectively. No matter your storage solution, the camera offers a shutter speed range between 1/4000th of a second and 1/8th of a second.
The regular white balance presets are available, too, while a self-timer will give you 10 seconds to position yourself in the shot. Other notable information consists of a presence of a built-in flash and USB 2.0 port, while the power is supplied via a pair of AAA batteries.
