Pentax Optio E50

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Sunday 3rd, February 2008

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.

Pentax Optio M50

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Sunday 3rd, February 2008

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.

Pentax K200D DSLR

Posted by: Mark Peters Sunday 3rd, February 2008

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.

Posted by: Mark Peters Sunday 3rd, February 2008

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.

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).
