    Pentax Optio T10 Digital Camera - Press Release

    PENTAX Optio T10 Major Features

    Easy-to-view 3.0 inch oversized LCD monitor
    The Optio T10 accommodates the largest PENTAX digital camera LCD monitor, which offers 3.0 inches and about 230,000 pixels for exceptional clarity and definition. Picture playback and settings are easier than ever with the larger and clearer image display and menu text. Since the monitor sports a wide viewing field, the screen remains easy to see and nearly as bright and colorful when viewed at an angle. This is helpful when monitoring shots at low or high angles or when showing off photos to a group of people.

    Touch display makes operations simple and enjoyable
    The Optio T10 touch display allows you to select and confirm functions by directly touching the LCD screen. The simplicity of touching and selecting the icon of the function you want from the displayed menu takes the stress out of setting up the camera.

    Excellent image quality
    The 6.0 effective megapixel CCD delivers images with exceptional definition. The camera boasts the well-regarded smc PENTAX lens, which renders clear, high-contrast images, while our unique lens coating cuts out ghosting and other artifacts. And the Optio T10’s superb image processing technology produces vivid colors and creates smooth tonal expressions at all brightness levels.

    My Drawing mode for easy picture design
    The Optio T10 comes with a My Drawing mode, which lets you enjoy customizing your shots. With the enclosed stylus pen, users may create original pictures by writing directly on the image shown on the monitor or adding a stored illustration with the Stamp function. The camera also has a function for storing your favorite photos as original stamps.

    19.5 mm body is the one of the thinnest in its class
    We successfully slimmed down the camera’s body by utilizing a 3X-optical zoom lens that employs the PENTAX Sliding Lens System* together with a high-density mounting technology that creates an incredibly efficient layout with almost no spaces between components. The resulting 19.5-mm-wide body is the thinnest in its class even with the 3.0-inch extra-large LCD monitor.
    PENTAX’s proprietary lens system that offsets the central lens groups from the optical axis and houses the lens elements in two separate stages in the lens barrel to reduce the overall lens length and thereby minimize the body depth.

    12 shooting modes cover a wide range of scenes
    The Optio T10 features 12 versatile shooting modes specialized for conditions such as Portrait, Landscape, Flower, or Night Scene. Just choose the mode matching the subject scene and the camera automatically optimizes the exposure, white balance, and other settings. Selecting the mode is easy with the touch display and the Mode Palette, which displays PENTAX’s original mode icons on the monitor.

    High-quality movie function with long recording times
    The Optio T10 smoothly captures movies at 30 fps (frames per second) at sizes up to 640 ´ 480 pixels with image quality rivaling camcorders.
    The camera includes a movie editing function that can save a frame from a recorded movie as a still image.

    Exquisite design
    We employed a high-grade aluminum alloy for the camera’s exterior. The elegant design is finished off with the soft rounded contours of the top cover that accentuate the unit’s thinness and project a friendly image.
