Claiming to be one of the smallest and lightest 10 megapixel digital cameras in the world, the stylish Pentax Optio S10 couples its high resolution CCD imager to a 3x optical zoom lens with a fairly typical 38 - 114mm focal range. A 2.5-inch 232,000 pixel LCD display is the sole method of framing images, as like many digicams these days, the Optio S10 forgoes any form of optical viewfinder.

Other Optio S10 features include 18 capture modes, face recognition autofocus & auto exposure, digital Shake Reduction that allows ISO to 3,200 to capture sharper images even in low light settings, a high quality DivX (MPEG-4) movie mode, and FotoNation's red-eye compensation function for flash shots.

Power for the S10 comes from a proprietary Lithium-ion rechargeable battery or optional AC adapter, and the camera stores images on SD/SDHC cards or 22MB 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.

Priced at US$249.95, the Pentax Optio S10 ships September 2007 and will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart Stores in the United States.
