Pentax Announces 2 New Compact Digicams
| by Gagan Gupta |
Pentax Imaging Company has announced two compact digital cameras in advance of the Photo Marketing Association International Trade Show (PMA 2007).
The Pentax Optio A30 features 10.0 effective megapixels, a 1/1.8 inch CCD with a wide dynamic range for superior tones, an smc Pentax zoom lens and an image processing engine.
Pentax also announced the Pentax Optio W30, the fifth model in the manufacturer's waterproof digital camera line. With an enhanced waterproof design, the Optio W30 performance capacity has more than doubled and now allows photographers to capture images underwater up to 10 feet for 2 hours.
The generous 2.5-inch LCD monitor offers an LCD Bright Mode that can adjust the brightness of the screen as necessary for improved viewing in the sunlight. The Optio W30 also features both Digital and Movie SR modes to reduce blur in both image and video capture.
The Optio W30 features the Face Recognition function and Macro Photography mode to allow image capture at under half an inch for close-ups of photography subjects such as flowers, insects, jewelry and much more.
Priced at US $349.95, the Optio A30 will ship in late March 2007, while the Optio W30 will ship the same month for US $299.95.
