Digital News Report – Pentax unveiled three new digital cameras today. They say these cameras are not “just another silver digital camera.”
The company released information about their new Optio I-10 which will go on sale in February. This is a 12-megapixel camera that will sell for around $300. With 5X-optical-zoom, the camera can also record HD video.
But wait, they aren’t done. For those looking to spend less money, the company has introduced the Optio H90 for around $180. It also has a 5-times optical zoom, but the image stabilization may not be as good. This camera can also capture video.
Their third camera is only 10 megapixels and will sell for around $100. Unlike some of the other low price cameras that only offer “digital” zoom, the Pentax Optio E90 has a 3X-optical-zoom lens. It can also capture video.
While the I-10 and H90 are High Definition video cameras, the E90 is only standard. The I-10 and the H90 have a large 2.7-inch LCD monitor on the back. It is unclear what the E90 has.
All of these cameras will be released next month.
