Pentax Optio E60 Digital Camera Review- it is designed for value pricing in the first place, but still manages to fit a set of interesting features. With the combination of a ten megapixel CCD, image sensor, 3x optical zoom and 2.4 inch LCD screen, the Pentax E60 is a relatively compact body that only 1.0 "/ 25mm thick. In addition to providing images of the camera, the Pentax E60's 1 / 2.33 "CCD image sensor is also used to provide a three-point contrast detection autofocus system type.

The Pentax Optio E60's 3x zoom lens provides focal lengths equivalent to 32 - 96mm on a 35mm camera - which is not a very generous wide angle to moderate telephoto. Maximum aperture is f/2.9 at wide angle. Unfortunately there is no optical image stabilization, with the Pentax Optio E60 only place offering terms as Pentax digital Shake Reduction. "Essentially this raises the sensitivity to as high as ISO 6400 equivalent, in an attempt to avoid a shake expense of image noise and subject detail.

The LCD is the only method of preparation or revision of the images, given that the Pentax Optio E60 has no provision for an optical viewfinder. A total of 112,000 points, the Optio E60 2.4 "screen offers the standard in terms of resolving this pricepoint. The images are stored in some sense 6.3MB of memory and Secure Digital card (including the new high-speed, high capacity SDHC types).

The Pentax Optio E60's power is supplied by two AA batteries - either alkaline or lithium disposables, or NiMH rechargeable. The Pentax E60 comes with a pair of disposable alkaline, which rates as good for Pentax 250 shots. Alternatively, you can expect around 280 minutes of continuous play time, 100 minutes of movie recording or 530 minutes of audio recording within a couple of AA alkaline disposable. Undoubtedly the best bet would be to buy a set of rechargeable NiMH charger plus a decent, they can offer an even better life and a cost savings over the lifetime of the camera.

The Pentax Optio E60 includes a number of features that help customize the appearance of images, such as user-selectable scene modes fifteen plus a "catch-all" Auto scene mode (which automatically selects between the normal, landscape , Portrait, Night Portrait, Night Scene, Flower and Sports scene modes, as appropriate), a macro function that allows focusing at 4 "/ 10cm, and face recognition technology that is linked to both systems the autofocus and autoexposure to ensure pleasant portraits. The face detection system can detect up to 10 faces in a scene, and, moreover, Pentax has included two options that have the additional advantage of this capability. The function of E60 Blink detection warns if your subjects closed their eyes, and a half-length portrait function automatically crops images found on the face location in order to produce a nice head and shoulders photo of your item.
