Pentax Optio A30 Compact Digital Camera
PENTAX has announced the Optio A30 to be shown at the PMA Photo Marketing Association International trade show. The Optio A30 provides speedy operation and gives outstanding high-quality photos and video capture with its many useful features.
This compact lightweight camera is capable of capturing images in 10MP resolution. The high intensity 2.5” LCD screen is clear and can easily be viewed, even in the bright sunlight. Keeping the clarity, its Intelligent Zoom function provides digital magnification with the image clarity of an optical zoom.
Further enhancing the images are the Shake Reduction (SR) functions used in its image processing engine. SR uses a gyro sensor and a shifting CCD system to provide enhanced corrective effects. The Digital SR mode effectively reduces camera shake and subject blur by adjusting the sensitivity pertaining to the brightness of the cameras focus. Also SR reduction is available while shooting videos. Using an electronic shake reduction solely for video capture, distortions in images affected by software camera shakes are corrected.
The Optio A30 is also a DivX Certified digital camera. DivX capability provides a higher quality with a significantly reduced file size. For business and social purposes, it is especially useful for sharing videos because of its compressed size. Other Features include 15 shooting and 15 playback modes, Calendar Display function, 22MB internal memory, removable SD and SDHC memory cards, and support for PictBridge connections. Availability will be late March and will be priced at $349.95.
