10.1 megapixel Pentax Optio E90 camera
Featuring 10.1 effective megapixels and a high-performance Pentax zoom lens, the Pentax Optio E90 delivers brilliant, high quality images with well-defined details. Even when images are enlarged, the camera delivers sharp, high-resolution prints with edge-to-edge sharpness. The Pentax E90 comes equipped with an optical 3X zoom lens covering focal lengths from approximately 31.5mm to 94.5mm (in the 35mm format). The 31.5mm wide-angle coverage is perfect for confined spaces as well as landscapes, magnificent structures or group snapshots. The Intelligent Zoom function, which allows even tighter zooming in on the subject without compromising image quality, extends the digital zoom range to approximately 17.1X.

Pentax E90 features advanced Face Detection
The Pentax Optio E90 features advanced Face Detection AF & AE function that automatically detects the subjectís face then optimizes the focus and exposure settings. The camera is also equipped with a Smile Capture function to detect a smile on a subjectís face and releases the shutter automatically. The Pentax E90 features Pentax-original Auto Picture mode that automatically and instantly selects one of eight shooting modes (Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, Night Scene Portrait, Flower, Sport, Standard, and Candlelight) for a specific subject or scene. This user-friendly mode helps photographers capture beautiful, high quality digital images of various subjects and scenes, without having to worry about making the proper adjustments to their capture settings each time.

Pentax Optio E90 runs on AA-size batteries
The Pentax Optio E90ís exterior has been treated with a luxurious, satin-like, non-slip rubber coating and the right-front panel is slightly raised to form fatigue-free, firm camera grip. Two universally-available AA-size batteries power the Optio E90 and replacements may be found almost anywhere in the world. The energy-efficient design captures approximately 600 images with a pair of fresh lithium batteries.

Pentax Optio E90 Green mode for beginners
The Pentax Optio E90ís user-friendly Green mode automatically selects the optimum combination of exposure settings, ISO sensitivity and other factors for a given subject or scene for high quality digital photography that is simple and effortless even for first-time digital photographers. This feature retains settings when the user asks someone else to take a picture or when a user has lost track of camera settings.

Pentax Optio E90 features a Panorama mode
The Pentax Optio E90 comes equipped with six digital filters to add various visual effects to recorded images without a computer including Monochrome, Sepia, and a new Starburst filter to create cross, heart or star-shaped highlights from nighttime illuminations or reflections on the water. Users may apply multiple filters to a single image. The Pentax Optio E90 features the creative Digital Panorama mode that automatically creates a single panoramic picture from as many as three images. Users simply move the camera sideways (or up and down) as they capture images and follow instructions to stitch the images together. This mode captures expansive subjects, such as spectacular landscapes or high-rise buildings that may not be captured in a single standard-format image. Available in Black and Wine Red, the Pentax Optio E90 will ship in February 2010.

Pentax E90 incorporates double anti-shake protection
ē High-Sensitivity anti-shake mode : When the Optio E90ís Digital SR mode detects low-lighting conditions in still-image shots, the camera automatically raises sensitivity to as high as ISO 1600, making it possible to use a faster shutter speed to minimize adverse effects of camera and subject movement under poor lighting conditions.
ē Movie SR mode : Pentax Movie SR mode allows the Pentax Optio E90 to digitally minimize camera shake to prevent blurry footage in movie recording mode.
