Pentax Optio S10

Ultra compact body with a stylish design

The PENTAX Optio S10 design is stylish and convenient to carry for travel and business, and the aluminum alloy exterior with a glossy spindle finish gives the camera an elegant appearance. With a 3X optical zoom lens and a large 2.5 inch LCD monitor, this latest 10 megapixel model in the Optio S series is still one of the smallest and the lightest ultra compact camera bodies in the world. The innovative PENTAX camera incorporates a miniaturized circuit board featuring high-density compact mounting technology.

10.0 effective megapixels with high resolution

With 10.0 effective megapixels, the Optio S10 ensures high resolution and delivers clear and crisp images even when enlarged to 11 x 17 inches. The new 1/1.8 inch CCD image sensor with a larger sensing area provides excellent performance for tone reproduction, texture delineation and noise reduction.

Digital Shake Reduction

The Digital Shake Reduction mode helps reduce camera shake and blurring of the subject when photographing still images. The sensitivity is adjusted automatically, to as high as the ultra-high sensitivity of ISO 3200, to match the brightness of the subjects. This enables photography with faster shutter speeds and images with less blur.

*Recording image is fixed at 5MB (2592x1944pixels) when “Digital SR” mode is selected

Face Recognition AF&AE function captures portraits more beautifully with simple operation

The Optio S10 is equipped with a Face Recognition AF&AE function* that automatically detects and focuses on faces. In addition, the Optio S10 also offers a new function that applies face recognition technology such as Natural Skin Tone mode to enhance skin texture and a Half-length Portrait mode,** which automatically captures close-up photographs of the upper body by cropping images of people from the waist up within the photo frame.

*Available when the picture mode is Portrait, Natural Skin Tone, Kids, or Half-length Portrait and the camera is directed at people directly from the front.

**Recording size is fixed at 3MB (2048×1536 pixels) when Half –length Portrait mode is selected. This camera’s Face Recognition AF & AE function uses Face Tracker face-recognition technology from FotoNation.

Bright and easy-to-view LCD monitor

The high sensitivity LCD monitor is equipped with an LCD booster that adjusts the brightness of the screen so users may easily check the screen even outdoors. At 2.5 inches and featuring a high resolution of 232,000 pixels, the LCD makes it easy to confirm picture composition and focus. With a wide viewing angle, the screen can also be easily viewed even from a side angle.

Auto Picture mode automatically determines the best settings for the shooting conditions

For ease in shooting, the Auto Picture mode lets the camera automatically determine shooting conditions for Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, and Normal mode and choose the optimal settings for each subject.

Video recording function enabling high-quality recording for long period of time

The Optio S10 captures movies at 30 fps (frames per second) at sizes up to 640×480 pixels with image quality rivaling camcorders. With the DivX® * (MPEG-4) movie format, the Optio S10 records high-quality movies with Movie Shake Reduction and helps correct blurred images with software.

*The Optio S10 is DivX® certified. Movie playback is not supported on Macintosh operating systems.
