Pentax Optio V20 Offers 8MP, 5X Zoom, 3 New Tricks

Pentax Optio V20 Digital Camera

Pentax has a new 8-megapixel compact camera, the Optio V20, with a 5x zoom and 3-inch LCD screen. It offers 3 innovative features:

• Face Recognition function that automatically detects and focuses on faces, then sets the optimum exposure.

• Smile Capture to detect the key facial expression of happy people and releases the shutter automatically.

• Blink Detection reports to the user whether any subjects closed their eyes in an image, so that the shot may be recaptured if necessary.

Additional features include Auto-tracking AF for continuously focusing on a moving subject, 52MB of built-in memory, and an Auto-Macro mode that allows close-up photography as near as 4 inches (10 cm) without changing the normal focusing mode.

The Pentax Optio V20 will start showing up stores in May 2008 with a price of $280, MSRP.
