The PENTAX Optio W80 features an internal 5X zoom lens that covers focal lengths from 5mm to 25mm (approximately 28mm to 140mm in 35mm format) and a refraction lens that never protrudes from the camera while zooming. This system allows the camera to capture a variety of scenes including expansive landscapes, architecture, and group photos in confined spaces as well as close-up telephoto shots of subjects. When combined with the intelligent digital zoom function (up to 6.25X) zoom magnification may be increased to 31.3X.

The built-in flash has modes for Auto, forced on (fill), forced off, redeye reduction, and soft flash. The working range at wide angle is approx. 13 ft wide., and telephoto is approx. 8.2 ft. (using ISO auto).

The 2.5 inch high-resolution (approximately 230,000 dots) LCD monitor features an Anti-Reflection coating to reduce reflective glare and be easily viewed even in bright sunlight. The monitor's wide viewing angle (about 170 degrees both horizontally and vertically) allows users to view images from nearly any angle.
