Pentax Optio 30 Review
Click to take a QuickTime tour of the Optio 30
The PENTAX Optio 30 makes digital easy and fun. Equipped with PictBridge technology, a new direct-print standard released by the Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA), the Optio30 connects directly to your printer so you may print images without a personal computer. You can also record a favorite shot on the start-up screen and select customized wallpaper choices for the menu screen on the ample 1.6 inch LCD monitor. In addition to a variety of conventional picture modes (Landscape, Nightscene, Nightscene Portrait, Portrait, Surf and Snow, Flower), the Optio 30 features new lifestyle-oriented modes including Party, Cuisine, and Pet.
The Optio 30 sports a round-edge design that offers an easy-to-hold, steady grip, and the camera permits you to customize a wide range of camera settings so you may select how you use the camera features as your digital confidence grows. With 16MB of built-in memory, it will always be ready to capture that special moment, even if you forgot your larger memory card behind.
For added value, the Optio30 does include an ACDSee computer software package that is designed exclusively for PENTAX digital cameras. Valued at $150, the package includes ACDSee 5.1, FotoSlate, FotoCanvas and Photostitcher. ACDSee digital camera software makes it easy to retrieve, view, manage, print, enhance and share your digital photos.
