Pentax launches entry-level Optio E40


Pentax has a new entry-level camera on the market – the 8.1 megapixel Optio E40.

It’s not bad for a first step – and has the features you probably need as a beginner, including Face Recognition for improved people shots, Digital SR (Shake Reduction) for reduced blur and Auto Picture mode, which automatically determines the best settings for shooting conditions.

There’s also 3x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom, 2.4-inch LCD screen, continuous shooting mode, SD and SDHC support, 10MB of internal memory and a panorama mode for merging images.

No news on price or a specific shelf date, we’ll keep you posted.
