Digital Compact Camera: Optio RS1000

Optio RS1000
PENTAX-original Face Change system to create your personal camera

With the Optio RS1000's removable transparent acrylic panel, you can insert a “dress-up sheet” between it and the camera body, easily and completely changing the camera's appearance to your taste. Using a photo or illustration, you can match it with your clothes or mood of the particular day, and create your own one-of-the-kind personal camera. Personalized decorative sheets can be easily created: use the traceable templates included in the camera package; download exclusive design software (available soon); or print out pre-designed sheets on a dedicated Web site (opening soon). The camera's front panel also sports a fine spindle finish, assuring an elegant appearance even when no dress-up sheet is used.

High-quality images assured by a versatile, high-performance optical 4X zoom lens

Thanks to the combination of the high-performance smc PENTAX optical 4X zoom lens covering the range from 27.5mm wide angle to 110mm telephoto (in the 35mm format) and 14.0 effective megapixels assuring superb image quality, the Optio RS1000 captures sharp, beautiful images of all types of subjects, and in all kinds of situations.

Large, easy-to-view 3.0-inch color LCD monitor

Despite its compact dimensions, the Optio RS1000 comes equipped with a large, high-resolution 3.0-inch color LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 dots for comfortable image and menu viewing.

User-friendly Auto Picture mode for hands-off selection of the most appropriate shooting mode

The Optio RS1000's sophisticated Auto Picture mode automatically selects the most appropriate shooting mode for a given scene or subject. With the addition of seven new modes including Blue Sky and Sunset, it now offers a total of 15 different shooting modes, making this user-friendly feature more versatile than ever.

HD-proportion movie recording for beautiful, flawless movie clips

The Optio RS1000 captures beautiful, high-quality movie clips at sizes up to 16:9 high-definition-TV proportions.

Note: when the Optio RS1000's AV output terminal is used, movie clips are output as standard NTSC/PAL data. The data must be transferred to a PC for the playback of movie clips at high-definition-TV proportions (1280 x 720 pixels).

Built-in digital filters to process images without PC

Since the Optio RS1000 offers a choice of nine creative digital filters, including Toy Camera and Retro, you can add a variety of eye-catching visual effects without requiring a computer.
