Pentax Reveals New Retro Camera: the MX-1

Pentax has just announced a new retro styled camera aimed at photo enthusiasts; the MX-1. This Prosumer/Bridge camera offers some high quality features for a non-interchangeable lens camera, like a large (compared to typical digicams) 1/1.7" CMOS image sensor, fast f/1.8-2.5 PENTAC SMC 4x optical zoom lens, hi-res 3.0-inch LCD, full 1080p HD video recording, and 10 different exposure modes to choose from. All of this is wrapped in a high-quality shell that is trimmed in brass and a textured-rubber surround.
