Pentax announces the launch of the Pentax Optio E70 digital compact camera. Featuring large control buttons, it offers easy, accessible camera operation to every user, especially for those new to digital cameras. Though it has been designed with accessibility for everyone in mind, the Optio E70 is equipped with advanced features to produce the high-quality digital images, such as Pentax triple anti-shake protection; Auto-focus and Auto-exposure modes capable of recognising up to 32 faces in only 0.03 seconds; approximately 10 effective megapixels for high resolution pictures; and a Green Mode which gives the camera responsibility for making all the necessary technical decisions, fre
Simple operation is the core of the Optio E50. With its compact dimensions and ergonomically formed body design it is the ideal “go anywhere” camera. The technical characteristics are ideal for snapshots. For “people shots” the camera automatically selects the best exposure settings and focusing and corrects for backlighting as soon as the subject is targeted with the help of the autofocus frame. In order to minimize blurring caused by camera shake the Pentax Optio E50 incorporates a digital "Shake Reduction" system that automatically increases sensitivity up to ISO 1600 so that faster shutter speeds can be used. With a resolution of 8.1 megapixels and a large 6 cm (2.4'') monitor the Pentax Optio E50 is thoroughly up-to-date.
Slim and easy all-round camera with extended zoom range. Despite its 5x zoom range, the diminutive dimensions and scant weight of the Pentax Optio M50 is due to a flat Lithium-Ion battery and further miniaturisation of the circuit board. The result is an eye-catching 23.5mm deep aluminium body that will be available in classic silver or a selection of other attractive colours. Technically the Pentax Optio M50 also has much to offer and will spoil the photographer with its numerous functions, not least of which is the extended - now five times - zoom range that assures successful telephoto shots. The digital "Shake Reduction" automatically increases the sensitivity to ISO 6400.
The new Pentax Optio S12 digital compact camera offers the highest technology in the smallest possible body. Ultra-compact dimensions and high-quality design are immediately recognizable in the typical Pentax style. Inside the 12 megapixels resolution with digital "Shake Reduction" and "Face Recognition" function complete the superb features for this state-of-the-art compact camera. The Pentax S12 camera further features a clear and bright 2.5’’ TFT Colour LCD Monitor with 232,000 pixels and Anti-reflection Coating. The Pentax Optio S12 is an ultra-compact, high-end lavishly equipped digital camera in a stunning aluminium body. The camera features easy to understand menus for simple operation.
The entry-level series of Pentax digital SLR cameras continues with the introduction of the new Pentax K200D, featuring the acclaimed Pentax Shake Reduction (SR) system. Blurred hand-held photographs, particularly with telephotos or longer exposure times, are a thing of the past. Two sensors are used by the SR system to detect any vibrations and compensate for any movement by the 10.2 Megapixel CCD. This blurring protection system occurs directly at the CCD saving the user from having to acquire expensive special lenses. Thanks to the Pentax K-mount bayonet virtually any Pentax lens can be used with the new Pentax K200D digital SLR.
The new Pentax K20D sets forth to build on the success of the acclaimed Pentax K10D which set new standards and established itself as a leading model in its class. A completely new camera concept has been developed for the Pentax K20D that clearly raises the standard for this class of digital SLR with its high performance features and extensive functions. Outwardly it is immediately clear that the Pentax K20D meets professional standards with its dust and splash-proof body. At the heart of the camera is a CMOS sensor with an effective resolution of 14.6 megapixels with extremely low noise characteristics. A further new development is Pixel mapping that interpolates failed pixels, avoiding disturbing white spots in the final image.
