Pentax is pleased to announce the Pentax Optio Z10, a compact digital camera equipped with a high-magnification 7X optical zoom lens that is convenient for various photography scenes. The Pentax Z10 is equipped with 7X optical zoom lens, the highest magnification among current Pentax compact digital camera models, built in a small and lightweight body of easy mobility. In addition, the Pentax Optio Z10 has a high resolution of 8.0 effective Megapixels, and features shake reduction that allows stress-free telephoto photography, and face recognition with high-speed detection time. In all, the Pentax Optio Z10 is a model that everyone can easily enjoy photography with high magnification and high image quality.

Specifications

Zoom lens
The new Pentax Optio Z10 digital compact camera includes a 7X optical zoom lens that covers focal lengths from 6.3 to 44.1mm (equivalent to 38-266mm for 35mm format) and features a refraction lens system so the lens never protrudes from the Pentax Z10 camera while zooming. This optical zoom covers a broad range, from wide-angle to telephoto zoom, and when used together with digital zoom, ultra high-magnification photography of up to approximately 35.7X is available.

Face Recognition and Resolution
The Pentax Z10 is equipped with the “Face Recognition AF&AE” function that automatically adjusts the focuses and sets the exposure, so users can take the photos of people easily and beautifully, by letting the camera do the work. In addition, this function can detect the faces of up to 15 peoples at once, and the detection time has been reduced to approximately 0.03 seconds at minimum. The Pentax Optio Z10 delivers high resolution photos that look sharp even at large magnifications, thanks to its 8.0 effective Megapixels and high performance Pentax lens, which precisely captures images down to the finest details.

Camera shake and Sensitivity
Digital SR (Shake Reduction) mode reduces camera shakes and blurring of the subject when photographing still images. The sensitivity is adjusted automatically, to as high as the ultrahigh sensitivity of ISO 3200, to match the brightness of the subjects. This enables photography with fast shutter speeds, and images with less blurs can be obtained. In addition, an electronic shake reduction function corrects blurring in images during image playback.

Scene photography
The Auto Picture mode lets the camera automatically determine the shooting conditions for Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, and Normal mode and choose the optimum settings for each subject. This function makes photography a lot easier for users since it eliminates the necessity of making a number of individual settings.

LCD display and Video recording
The Pentax Optio Z10 comes with a high resolution, a 2.5-inch LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 pixels that enables images and the text to be displayed largely and clearly. The LCD monitor has a wide viewing angle of 170 degrees from all directions, making it easy to confirm images, even when looking at the screen diagonally. The Pentax Optio Z10 smoothly captures movies at 30fps (frames per second) at sizes up to 640 x 480 pixels with image quality rivaling camcorders. In addition, Movie SR (Shake Reduction) function that effectively corrects in images due to camera shakes through software, allowing for movies to be taken more easily and without hassles.

Pentax Optio Z10 features
• Digital wide converts 2 images into approx. 28mm wide angle expression (equiv. to 35mm)
