High magnification 7x optical zoom The Optio Z10 features a 7x optical zoom lens that covers focal lengths from 6.3 to 44.1mm (equivalent to 38-266mm for 35mm format) and features a refraction lens system so the lens never protrudes from the camera while zooming. This optical zoom covers a broad range, from wide-angle to telephoto zoom, and offers ultra-high magnification of up to approximately 35.7x when combined with digital zoom.
8 megapixels produce exceptionally fine-detailed photos With 8.0 effective megapixels and a high-performance Pentax lens, the Optio Z10 delivers high-resolution photos. Compatible with SD memory cards and SDHC memory cards, the Optio Z10 offers a generous 52 MB of built-in-memory.
High-speed Face Recognition AF&AE function of approximately 0.03 seconds The Optio Z10 is equipped with a Face Recognition AF&AE function* that automatically adjusts the focus and sets the exposure so users may capture photos of people easily. In addition, this function can detect the faces of up to 15 people at once, and the detection time has been reduced to approximately 0.03 seconds at minimum.
*Available when the picture mode is Natural Skin Tone, Portrait, or Kid, and the camera is directed at people from the front.
Digital Shake Reduction The Digital Shake Reduction mode reduces camera shake and blurring of the subject when photographing still images. The sensitivity is adjusted automatically, to as high a sensitivity as ISO 3200, to match the brightness of the subjects. This enables photography with fast shutter speeds and images with less blurring. In addition, an electronic Shake Reduction function corrects blurring in images during image playback.
2.5-inch LCD monitor with a wide viewing angle The Optio Z10 comes with a high resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 pixels that enables images and text to be clearly displayed. The LCD monitor offers a wide viewing angle of 170 degrees from all directions, making it easy to confirm images, even when looking at the screen from a side angle.
Auto Picture mode automatically determines the best setting for the shooting conditions The Auto Picture mode sets the camera automatically for various shooting conditions such as Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, and Normal mode and choose the optimal settings for each subject.
