PMA 2010 Report
Pentax Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the Pentax Optio E30 compact digital camera. Although an entry-level model designed with the convenience of beginners in mind, the Pentax E30 is packed with 7.1 effective Megapixels for exceptional high-resolution photography. The upgraded 7.1 effective Megapixels, the one of the most in the entry-level class, enables you to take pictures with outstanding resolution. The Pentax Optio E30 digital camera features a 3X optical zoom lens with a focal range covering angles of view equivalent to those of a 36-108mm lens in 35mm format, which is ideal for a broad spectrum of subjects from landscapes, through sightseeing photographs, to portraits.
Pentax E30 digital camera - Operation
The Pentax Optio E30 compact camera comes with the Green mode, which automates the camera setup when shooting still images that allows even complete digital-camera beginners to enjoy picture-taking effortlessly. A single button press automatically sets the exposure, sensitivity, white balance, and other parameters according to the shooting conditions. This function is useful when asking someone else to take your picture or when you’ve simply lost track of the camera settings.

The Pentax E30 is compatible with the ImageLink printing system. By simply placing the Pentax Optio E30 on the printer’s dock of ImageLink-compatible printers, the user can take advantage of printing of recorded images, without requiring a personal computer.
