Pentax announces new Optio models

Pentax today announced two new models in the Optio point and shoot digital camera series:

Optio P70: Sensor resolution is 12MP. Perhaps more interesting than the resolution, the focal length goes from 28mm to 110mm (in 24x36mm film format terms). Most compact cameras start out closer to 40mm. It also records 720p HD video at 15 fps.

Optio E70: A new entry level camera, 10MP and a zoom range of 35-105mm (in 24x36mm film format terms). This camera uses universally available AA batteries, convenient when traveling.

These new cameras are quite inexpensive (US$200 and US$140, respectively) and will ship in February 2009.
