HOYA CORPORATION PENTAX Products is pleased
to announce the launch of the PENTAX Optio P70 digital compact camera. In its
stylish, ultra-slim body, this new high-performance model features a host of
advanced functions that make high-quality digital photography simple and effortless.
The Optio P70 packages outstanding core features — such as an optical
4X zoom lens, approximately 12 effective megapixels for super-high-resolution
images, and a large, easy-to-view 2.7-inch color LCD monitor — into a
high-quality metallic housing. Despite these specifications, it has been designed
to be extremely compact, with a body as thin as 16.5 millimeters in some sections.
It also offers a variety of user-friendly features, including a new Vertical
Snap to facilitate vertical-position shooting; a Smile Capture function to
automatically release the shutter when it detects a subject’s smile;
and an Auto Picture mode to automatically select one of eight shooting modes
for a given subject. As a result, it assures high-quality digital photography
with simple, effortless operation. The Optio P70 also offers a choice of three
colors to suit the user’s preference.
