Update to the Optio 330 uses new image sensor, takes the record as current smallest 4 megapixel digital camera...
Our friends at Dutch website LetsGoDigital.nl have posted news of a new 4 megapixel digital camera from Pentax. The Optio 430 updates the previous Optio 330 model with a 4 megapixel image sensor, retaining the previous camera's ultra-compact stainless steel case and 3x optical zoom lens.
The Pentax Optio 440 should reach market in Germany this November, at a price of DEM 2000 (US$934.54). Other than the slightly higher resolution, the few details available look to be similar to the previous model.
We've added what information we have on the camera to our database. Thanks to LetsGoDigital.nl for allowing us to use their image of the camera, courtesy of Pentax.
