Pentax X90 overview

  • 1Description

The Pentax X90 Super Zoom Digital Camera offers high-quality 12.1 megapixel imaging, and an amazing 26x wide-angle optical zoom lens. The lens has a 35mm film equivalent of 26-676mm. With this kind of optical power it does not matter if your subject is up close or in the distance. Composing photos is easy on the camera's bright 2.7" LCD screen with anti-reflection coating, or use the electronic viewfinder that has diopter adjustment controls to make it perfect for your eyes.

Auto Picture Mode analyzes your composition and automatically adjusts critical exposure settings for brilliant, hassle-free shooting. If you want more control, the camera also features manual, aperture, and shutter priority modes. The camera performs well in low light with Triple Shake Reduction Technology. This includes a mechanical sensor-shift mechanism, digital Pixel Track SR, and Movie SR. Your images will be sharp even under adverse conditions.

For taking portraits and group photos, the Face Detection Mode will quickly find up to 32 faces. If your subject is better captured in motion, no problem for this versatile camera; it takes high-quality videos, or stills at 11 frames-per-second.
