Pentax Optio S10
The Pentax Optio S10, the newest model in the “Optio S” series of compact digital cameras comes with a stylish, ultra-compact body with 10.0 effective megapixels for high resolution images. In addition to enabling easy mobility and photography of high resolution images, the Optio S10 comes with enhanced usability by upgrading Shake Reduction and Face Recognition functions. Despite a 3X optical zoom lens and a large 2.5 inch LCD monitor, the Optio S10 is one of the smallest and the lightest ultra compact camera body with 10.0 megapixels. This is achieved by miniaturizing circuit board and applying high-density compact mounting technology. With 2.5-inch and high resolution of 232,000 pixels, it is easy to confirm picture compositions and the focus. Due to its wide viewing angle, the screen can also be easily viewed, since there is little change in brightness and colors even when looking at the monitor diagonally.
The Pentax Optio S10 smoothly captures movies at 30 fps ( frames per second ) at sizes up to 640×480 pixels with image quality rivaling camcorders. Since it employs the DivX (MPEG-4) movie format, the Optio S10 can record long, high-quality movies. The Pentax Optio S10’s compact design makes carrying more comfortable and convenient not only in travel and leisure but also in the daily snapshots and business scenes. The aluminum alloy adopted as outer cover gives a sophisticated texture to the camera, and the front face with glossy spindle finish creates an elegant appearance. Optio S10 with 22 MB of internal memory is compatible with SD and SDHC memory cards. The Optio S10 measures 87.0 x 54.0 x 21.0 mm, weighs 130g (loaded and ready).
