Pentax Imaging has launched a web site just to show off the work of Pentaxians around the world. The new site, www.pentaxphotogallery.com, was designed for Pentax photographers by Pentax Imaging, setting it apart from the other photo sharing sites that are almost ubiquitous.
Pentax is starting their yearly refresh of their Optio digital camera line with the Optio M40 and Optio E40. The 8 megapixel M40 features a slim, metal body, face detection and digital shake reduction. The 8 megapixel entry level Optio E40 takes AA batteries and also has face detection and digital shake reduction. The Pentax Optio M40 will be available in August 2007 for $199 and the Pentax Optio E40 will be available in September for $149.
Pentax has announced a follow-up to their K100D digital SLR that was announced last year. The Pentax K100D Super incorporates just a few new features (Dust Removal and support for Supersonic Drive Motor lenses), but it's essentially the same camera as the K100D.
The latest entry level model in Pentax's extensive line of point & shoot digital cameras is the Optio E30. As with any digital camera, there are pros and cons. This particular camera is considered "entry level", with a straighforward feature set, low price and ease of use as its selling points. Bottom line, the Optio E30 is great for those consumers getting their first digital camera.
Pentax announced two new additions to their Optio line today. The Pentax Optio A30 is their "advanced" model that replaces the A20. It features 10 megapixels of resolution, a high resolution 2.5 inch LCD, 3x optical zoom, and CCD-shift image stabilization. The Pentax Optio W30 updates their line of waterproof digital cameras and shoots at 7.1 megapixels with a 3x optical zoom and 2.5 inch LCD.
Pentax has announced the Optio T30 and Optio M30 digital cameras to succeed the T20 and M20 (respectively). Both new cameras features a new facial recognition feature to provide accurate auto focus and auto exposure on the faces in your frame. Both cameras will be available in March with the T30 for $350 and the M30 will be available for $200.
Pre-CES - Pentax is "breaking the seal" on what will probably be a rash of digital camera announcements surrounding this year's CES (Consumer Electronics Show). The 7.1 megapixel Pentax Optio E30 is an entry level model that accepts AA batteries, has a 3x optical zoom and a 2.4 inch LCD. The E30 will be available in February for $149.95.
Pentax and Hoya have announced a merger where, effective on October 1, 2007, they will be known as the Hoya Pentax HD Corporation. By joining forces, they seek to use their strengths to establish better value for the shareholders. Fortunately, it doesn't look like this involving digital cameras will actually change that much.
Samsung has announced the 10.2 megapixel GX-10 digital SLR. You may notice that it's very similar to the Pentax K10D and you're right to think so. Pentax and Samsung have been working together to compete in the digital SLR market. The GX-10 has also has CCD-shift image stabzilization, a 2.5 inch LCD, weatherproofing, and ability to use Pentax, KAF2, KAF, and KA mount lenses.
Coming at us with a twofer today, Pentax has announced the K10D digital SLR and Optio T20 point and shoot digital camera. The Pentax K10D provides a 10 megapixel sensor, Shake Reduction, and a weatherproof body. The Pentax Optio T20 is an update to the T10, providing 7 megapixels and a 3 inch touch sensitive LCD in a body that's only 0.77 inches thick. Read on for more details and availability of these cameras.
