Pentax Optio I-10 Digital Camera

Pentax has announced the Optio I-10 SR digital camera, boasting a design inspired by the classic look of film SLR cameras.

The Pentax Optio I-10 features a flash unit and speaker in the upper mid-section of the SLR-shaped body while the camera’s front panel is embellished with what the company describes as high quality leatherette texture, and the classic PENTAX logo placed front and center.

The Optio I-10 also features a wide angle, 5X optical zoom lens (28mm-140mm equivalent), a 12.1 megapixel high resolution CCD sensor, a 2.7 inch widescreen LCD, and HD video capture at 720p and 30 FPS. It also utilizes a mechanical sensor shift Shake Reduction system and improved Pixel Track Shake Reduction technology for blur-free images as well as Smile Capture, Blink Detection and improved Face Detection that spots up to 32 faces including dogs and cats.

The Optio I-10 is remote control compatible (sold separately) and will ship in February 2010 in a choice of Classic Black and Pearl White for $300 USD.
