If you like the look of the Olympus E-P1, but didn't much care for the price, here's another stylish retro camera to consider – the Pentax Optio I-10.
Sadly it's not pushing the same technological boundaries as the Olympus effort, but it is stil a very good digital compact camera, offering up a 12-megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom, auto focus and exposure and face recognition, the latter able to accurately detect up to 32 faces in a single shot. Oh yes and for animal lovers, it can even capture up to two or three dog and cat faces too.
Throw in HD (720p) video recording and that two-tone 60s style and you've got a very tasty piece of kit, which will be available from next month for £199.99.
One thought on “Pentax goes retro with the newly-launched Optio I-10 digital camera”
