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.

Selection of shooting and playback modes is made much easier with the Mode Palette, Pentax's original mode-selection function that lists mode icons on the LCD monitor. By arranging 15 shooting modes, including Landscape, Pet, and Food, and 8 playback modes, the Mode Palette speeds up mode selection with its straightforward display and guide function. 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.

The Pentax E30 digital compact camera manages to fit in a large, 2.4-inch LCD monitor despite its compact body dimensions. Not only does the monitor’s size make it easier to compose and play back images, it also permits easier operation and setup thanks to its larger, easy-to-read menu display. The 3x optical zoom can also be combined with 4X digital zoom to achieve a total of 12X zoom capability.

Pentax Optio E30 features
• Supports SDHC memory cards in addition to conventional SD memory cards
• Approximately 11MB of built-in memory
• Built-in auto flash with red-eye reduction function
• Records movie at sizes up to 640x480 pixels with image quality rivalling camcorders
• Frame composite function allows adding a frame around the image when shooting
• Compatible with PictBridge, DPOF functions, Exif Print, and PRINT Image Matching III

Pentax Optio E30 photo camera - Batteries
Since the Pentax Optio E30 accepts widely available AA batteries, you can shoot with confidence when away from home or whenever you want. Furthermore, the camera has been designed specifically to use less power so that you can take approximately 200 photos when running on alkaline batteries.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
