The Pentax Optio Z10 Digital Camera is equipped with a 7x optical zoom lens that is designed with a refraction lens system so the lens never protrudes from the camera while zooming. The 7x optical zoom covers a broad range, from wide-angle to telephoto zoom, and offers an ultra high-magnification of up to approximately 35.7x when combined with the cameras digital zoom. With 8.0 megapixels of image resolution, the Optio Z10 provides high quality images that can be reproduced up to poster size or cropped without any significant loss of image quality.

Other features of the Optio Z10 includes high speed Face Recognition for improved portraits and digital Shake Reduction that uses the cameras ISO 3200 sensitivity to capture sharper images even in low light settings. Furthermore, the sleek, stylish Pentax Optio Z10 body design features a sliding lens cover for extra protection, and a high resolution 2.5 inch LCD monitor that enables images and text to be clearly displayed with a wide viewing angle of 170 degrees from all directions.

8.1 Megapixel Resolution
The 1/2.5-inch CCD of the Optio Z10 digital camera with a resolution of 8.1 megapixels produces high quality fine-detailed photos that can easily be enlarged or cropped without image quality loss, and the camera produces images with more natural, and vivid colors thanks to its 12-bit A/D converter.
7x Optical Zoom Lens
The Optio Z10 features a 7x optical zoom lens that covers focal lengths from 6.3 to 44.1mm (equivalent to 38-266mm for 35mm format) and features a refraction lens system so the lens never protrudes from the camera while zooming. The camera also has a 5.1x Digital zoom for a total combined zoom range of 35.7x
Digital SR (Shake Reduction) Function
Using Digital SR reduces camera shakes and blurring of the subject when photographing still images. The sensitivity is adjusted automatically, to as high as ISO 3200, enabling photography with fast shutter speeds, and consequently less blur. Movie SR (Shake Reduction) is also included in the camera providing an electronic shake reduction function exclusively for capturing movies.
High-speed Face Recognition AF&AE Function
The Optio E40 is equipped with a "Face Recognition AF & AE" function that automatically detects and focuses on faces, regardless of where the people appear in the photo frame, and can detect the faces of up to 15 people at once. In addition, exposure settings are automatically adjusted to optimize for the faces, even if there is backlighting. Furthermore, this improved High-speed function, has a reduced detection time to approximately 0.03 seconds.
Convenient Mode Pallet
The Mode pallet allows the user to quickly access 15 shooting modes and 15 playback modes to perfectly optimize the camera to a wide range of shooting conditions, and the Auto Picture mode provides the same ease of use as in any Pentax compact digital camera.
Auto Picture mode
The Auto Picture mode automatically determines the best settings for the shooting conditions and then adjusts the camera setting automatically for various shooting conditions.
Digital Wide Function
The unique digital wide function converts two images into a single image with an equivalent focal length of approximately 28mm. the resulting wide angle image is great for interior or architectural images or for talking images of landscapes.
