The Pentax Optio E60 Digital Camera makes for an excellent entry-level compact digital camera, thanks to its affordability and ease of use. It records images with a resolution of 10.0 Megapixels, which provides ample resolution for superb quality prints up to poster sizes, and features a 3x optical zoom Pentax lens with a fairly wide angle of view (32-96mm equivalent) so it is great for taking group shots and landscapes. The cameras Green mode automatically sets exposure, sensitivity and other parameters with a touch of a button for the simple point-and-shoot operation.

Even though this camera is easy to use, experienced digital photographers will enjoy the slim, lightweight body and simple mode selection dial. In addition, the camera is equipped with a high resolution 2.4 inch LCD display, 6.3MB of internal memory, and high quality AVI Movie capture. In addition, the Optio E60 uses travel-friendly AA Batteries as a power source and features World Time and Date Imprint functions, plus it even offers an Image Recovery feature to retrieve accidentally-erased, once-in-a-lifetime pictures.

10.0 Megapixel Resolution
The 1/2.33-inch CCD of the E60 digital camera produces high quality images with an effective resolution of 10.1 megapixels that can be enlarged or cropped, and the camera produces images with more natural, vivid colors thanks to its 12-bit A/D converter
3x Optical Zoom
The Optio E60 has a 3x optical zoom lens equivalent to a 32-96mm lens in 35mm format. When the optical zoom is paired with the digital zoom function (up to 5.7x), the camera can attain up to 17.1x effective zoom magnification. The Quality Pentax lens also has superb macro capability with minimum focus as close as 4" in wide mode
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 6400, 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
Convenient Mode Pallet
The Optio E60 features the Pentax-original mode palette system for smooth, effortless selection of shooting and playback modes - all the user has to do to set the desired mode is select the corresponding icon on the screen. Furthermore the extensive modes available in the camera mean that there is a simple shooting solution for just about any type of photography. The E60 even has a Panorama mode that automatically stitches three images together for a wide vista shot - great for landscapes and travel pictures
Auto Picture Mode
The Auto Picture mode in the Optio E60 automatically determines the shooting conditions for Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, and Normal modes and selects the optimum settings for each subject
Green Mode - Easy on Beginners
The Green mode takes the guesswork out of taking pictures for first-time digital photographers by automatically setting all still-image photo settings
Face Recognition AF & AE
The Optio E60 is equipped with a Face Recognition AF & AE function that automatically detects and focuses on up to 10 faces to assure properly exposed portraits, regardless of where the people appear in the photo frame. In addition, exposure settings are automatically adjusted to optimize for the faces, even if there is backlighting
Record Movies with Sound
The camera can record quality movies with sound in either VGA (640x480) or QVGA (320x240) resolution and at a frame rate of either 30 or 15 fps. There is also a voice memo mode that allows users to attach a sound recording to an image
2.4-inch LCD Display
The Optio E60 manages to fit in a large, 2.4-inch LCD monitor despite its compact body dimensions. Not only does the monitor's size make it easier to compose and play back images, it also permits easier operation and setup thanks to its larger, easier-to-read menu display
Convenient AA-size Batteries
AA-size batteries can be purchased at any store so you don't need to worry about running out of power or recharging batteries - simply get replacement batteries locally
Direct Printing Capable
The E60 supports PictBridge Direct printing, which means that the camera can be connected to or docked with compatible printers, and photos can be printed without using a PC
