Pentax Unveils Innovative Compact 8MP Digital Camera

The new Pentax Optio A10 is the company's first model with an 8MP CCD packaged in the signature slim, lightweight, stylish design of the Optio digital camera line. The new flagship camera features an innovative Shake Reduction system that utilizes two internal gyro sensors to detect camera shake while a dedicated CPU calculates the required correction to compensate for the level of camera shake while focusing. In turn, a proprietary mechanism adjusts the CCD to compensate for the camera shake and deliver sharp images.

The Optio A10 is equipped with a high-performance 3X optical zoom lens that is constructed from seven elements in five groups, including three double-sided aspherical lenses. The camera's compact, lightweight body measures only 3.5x2.1x0.9 inches and weighs just 4.4 ounces. An intuitive mode palette allows quick navigation and selection from the 15 shooting modes and 15 playback modes through a translucent display which superimposes icons over the LCD monitor image

Despite its slim body, the Optio A10 boasts a large 2.5-inch LCD monitor with 232,000 pixels. The monitor is easy to view, even in bright conditions. For complete details please visit
