Pentax Optio V10 Slim Camera

19481_Optio%20V10_3QView_LeftSideAngle_LensOut_sm.jpgThe other pentax launched today is this 8mp slim that is about 2cm thick. Not bad, but a quick google shows that Sony's had thinner Cybershots, even if at lower MP ratings. (Not sure if that's counting the big lens cover slides that most T series cams have.) The back has a 3-inch LCD.

Ultra-thin design is achieved using a new compact battery and miniaturized circuit boards

Huge 3.0 inch LCD monitor makes it easy to compose and review images

8.0 megapixel CCD and 3x optical zoom assure high resolution images

Face Recognition Auto Focus and Auto Exposure assure properly exposed portraits

Digital Shake Reduction mode automatically selects higher ISO setting

Powerful flash captures images even in dark locations

Auto Picture mode quickly selects camera settings based on the scene

16 additional capture modes offer versatility

Auto Macro mode allows close-up photography
