Auto Picture mode for automatic selection of the ideal shooting mode
The Optio E90 features PENTAX-original Auto Picture mode that automatically and instantly selects one of eight shooting modes (Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, Night Scene Portrait, Flower, Sport, Standard, and Candlelight) for a specific subject or scene. This user-friendly mode helps photographers capture beautiful, high quality digital images of various subjects and scenes, without having to worry about making the proper adjustments to their capture settings each time.

Green mode for beginners
The Optio E90’s user-friendly Green mode automatically selects the optimum combination of exposure settings, ISO sensitivity and other factors for a given subject or scene for high quality digital photography that is simple and effortless even for first-time digital photographers. This feature retains settings when the user asks someone else to take a picture or when a user has lost track of camera settings.

Double anti-shake protection

High-Sensitivity anti-shake mode
When the Optio E90’s Digital SR mode detects low-lighting conditions in still-image shots, the camera automatically raises sensitivity to as high as ISO 1600, making it possible to use a faster shutter speed to minimize adverse effects of camera and subject movement under poor lighting conditions.

Movie SR mode**
PENTAX Movie SR mode allows the Optio E90 to digitally minimize camera shake to prevent blurry footage in movie recording mode.
** When the Movie SR mode is selected, the angle of view becomes narrower than normal shooting.

Digital filters for personal, creative touches
The Optio E90 comes equipped with six digital filters to add various visual effects to recorded images without a computer including Monochrome, Sepia, and a new Starburst filter to create cross, heart or star-shaped highlights from nighttime illuminations or reflections on the water. Users may apply multiple filters to a single image.

Digital Panorama mode to compose extra-wide-perspective images
The Optio E90 features the creative Digital Panorama mode that automatically creates a single panoramic picture from as many as three images. Users simply move the camera sideways (or up and down) as they capture images and follow instructions to stitch the images together. This mode captures expansive subjects, such as spectacular landscapes or high-rise buildings that may not be captured in a single standard-format image.
