Pentax’s only ultra-zoom offering, the Optio X70 was just reviewed at Neocamera. This digital camera features a 12 megapixels sensor paired with a stabilized wide-angle 24X optical zoom lens, starting from a rather wide 26mm-equivalent focal-length and reaching 624mm. This is one of the few ultra-zoom digital cameras to record HD 720p video.
The Pentax Optio X70 is a well-featured camera with manual-controls, including manual-focus, custom white-balance and plenty of customizations. It also offers face-detection, blink-detection and smile-detection to improve portraits. Find how it performs by reading its detailed review at Neocamera.
