Pentax S12 Intro

An update to the tiny ten megapixel Optio S10, Pentax now claims the Optio S12 is the smallest, most stylish twelve megapixel camera in its class.

Pentax S12 Features

The Pentax Optio S12 has a twelve megapixel CCD imager and a Pentax-branded 3x optical zoom lens. The S12 features a 2.5-inch LCD display for image framing and reviewing, but there's no room for an optical viewfinder in this extremely compact digicam. Power for the S12 comes from a proprietary Lithium-ion rechargeable battery or optional AC adapter, and the camera stores images on SD/SDHC cards or 21MB of built-in memory. There's also USB 2.0 High-Speed computer connectivity and NTSC / PAL video out to let you see your photos or movies on a television.
