Pentax’s roll out of its ever growing Optio compact camera range continues this week with the arrival of the latest model the Optio S5z. The £249.99 snapper is similar in style to its predecessors with a rectangular design with a metallic finish, yet it features a 2.5inch LCD monitor – larger than most of its rivals. The features list if pretty good for a compact with a five mega pixel CCD, 3x optical and 4x digital zooms, a macro option, 15 exposure modes and a range of digital effects. It can also shoot video in the MPEG4 standard at VGA quality. Images and footage are stored either on its 9.3MB of internal memory or on a Secure Digital card.
