Pentax are launching the all new WS80, a budget version of the recently released W80.

The WS80 has a lower resistance to water than the W80, and a 10 megapixel rating instead of the W80's 12.1.

However, the WS80 is lighter than it's more expensive sibling, at less than 125g including battery and card, and can capture high definition 1280 x 720 video at 30 frames per second.

For an entry level waterproof compact, the WS80 looks great.
A quick search on google has found if for sale at £179 including free post and packaging.
