  • Pentax Optio W30 review

    The summer may be officially over, but the temperatures are still warm enough to cook an egg on the sidewalk and there’s enough time to hit the beach and soak up the sun. I like to frolic in the ocean and often times I wish I had a waterproof digital point-and-shoot to capture all my shenanigans while surfing. I’ve tried the disposables and the surf-specific cameras, but… Read More

  • Pentax Announces Two Easy To Use Affordable Point And Shoots

    Pentax has intro’d two lightweight and reasonably priced point-and-shoots, the Optio M40 and Optio E40. The M40 is a whopper at 8-megapixels and features a streamlined ultra-slim designed metallic body that boasts 3X optical zoom, 4X digital zoom and a larger than life 2.5-inch LCD monitor. Face Recognition and Digital Shake Reduction are two key features that Pentax seems to excel at. Read More

  • Pentax Announces Superfied K100D

    Pentax announced an update to their ever-popular K100D dSLR, which is a simple-to-use, entry-level model that even your mother could use. So what’s new with K100D Super? Building on rock solid features like the Shake Reduction system is a ground-breaking Dust Removal system commingling with SDM lenses. If that isn’t Super than I don’t know what is. Hmmm. How about the… Read More

  • Patent Monkey: Digital 3D Photography Preparing for Internet Viewing

    This week, Pentax received a patent on a 3-D imaging system with distance controls while two individual inventors patented a means for viewing 3-D digital images on the Internet. The art of Stereoscopy has been around for a century, but what’s captivating is where this space can go with the explosion in the digital realm. Read More

  • Lensbabies 3G Medium Format

    Not a hugely exciting bit of news, but Lensbabies just launched a medium format version of their Lensbaby 3G product. The new model is for Mamiya 645 and Pentax 67 cameras and costs $390. For those not in the know, Lensbabies are odd, selective focus lenses that bring one point on a picture into focus and leave the rest blurry. The effect is similar to that the Miniature Model Effect but it… Read More

  • Pentax Optio A30 Is Smokin'


    The Optio A30 from Pentax is a titillating piece of digital camera righteousness. Successor to the A20 (one of our favorite products from last year), the 10-megapixel digi features a 2.5-inch LCD and an intelligent zoom function that rivals the image clarity of an optical zoom. Shake Reduction is also implemented to steady that nervous twitch you have. If you’ve been looking for a… Read More

  • Pentax X-Change Concept Camera

    The implementation looks pretty creepy, but the idea here is cool. Pentax is showing off their X-Change concept point and shoot at PhotoKina this year and what they’ve come up with is a small, portable camera with replaceable lenses. The camera has no CCD. Instead, the CCD is built into the lens and is activated when you attach it to the body. This allows for varying focal lengths and… Read More

  • Pentax Optio E20 6-Megapixel Camera

    Pentax’s successor to the E10 has just been revealed, slightly ahead of Photokina. The Optio E20 has a 6.0 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom, 2.4-inch LCD and 13MB of internal memory. It’s powered by two AA batteries, which in our opinion is better than the proprietary batteries usually found in other cameras. This way you can carry a stash of cheap AA batteries to flip in and… Read More

  • Pentax Brings the Pain

    Lets Go Digital has a review on the new Pentax Optio A20. The basics of this beast of a non-dSLR are 10 megapixels, a high-quality smc Pentax zoom lens, upto ISO 1600, several anti-shake settings and various corrective functions for color and tone. One of the more exiting features, however, is its AF & AE face recognition ability. The camera can sense and focus on faces, balancing… Read More
