Pentax easy to use ultra-slim Optio M40

By using an exclusive slim battery and making the circuit board smaller, the ultra-slim body of Pentax Optio M40 is just 18mm. High quality aluminum alloy is also used for the outer cover, giving the Optio M40 a sophisticated texture. The ultra slim and stylish Pentax Optio M40 offers so much more than you might expect from a digital camera with an affordable price. The Optio M40 is equipped with a powerful flash photography performance that enables for subjects in dark locations to be captured brightly and clearly at a distance of up to approximately 15.5m, due to a flash that uses a large amount of light and the ultra-sensitivity of “Digital SR”.
