The OptioS features a patented sliding lens zoom mechanism that allows the camera's 3X (35-105mm in 35mm equivalent) optical lens to fully recede into the camera housing, flush with the body frame. This novel system helps protect the lens and helps reduce the size of the OptioS by almost 60 percent compared to the PENTAX Optio330RS. A new Multi Chip Module in the circuit board and the redesigned chamber have further minimized free space in the OptioS.
Despite the size, OptioS is packed with features found only on larger digital cameras: Records up to 30 seconds of motion video at 12fps with sound, a voice recording mode for attaching 30- second memos to selected images, a 1.6-inch color LCD monitor with 100% coverage, selectable metering modes, white balance settings, exposure compensation, optical viewfinder, approximately 11MB of built-in memory, SD/MMC card compatible and includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
This little camera delivers a big punch with its variety of shooting modes, including super macro, which captures images from just under 2.4 inches away, and infinity-landscape, which is great for shooting panoramic landscapes, seven Pictures modes, 3-D, panorama assist, night scene and more.
