Pentax Announces Slimmest Digital Camera in Optio Line

GOLDEN, Colo, Sept. 1, 2005 – PENTAX Imaging Company has announced the slimmest member of the Optio S series of stylish digital cameras. The PENTAX Optio S6 digital camera features 6.0 megapixels, an innovative powerful 3X zoom Sliding Lens system, and the slim dimension of just 7/10 of an inch thick.

“Slim is still in, and the Optio S6 offers the slimmest PENTAX digital body available,” said Ned Bunnell, director of marketing, PENTAX Imaging Company. “PENTAX continues to pack features into the stylish Optio S series and preserve the slim, tiny design that makes these cameras small enough to fit into a breath mint tin,” added Bunnell.

An innovative design approach in the Optio S6 contributes to the camera’s compact dimensions. Glass-molded aspherical lenses that are concave on both sides, a thinner CCD and other advances help reduce the depth of this model by a fifth of an inch. The camera also incorporates engineering expertise with high-density mounting and the strategic use of internal space so that substance and style blend perfectly in the PENTAX Optio S6.

While the PENTAX Optio S6 dimensions have slimmed down, the camera’s generous 2.5 inch LCD monitor offers low reflection with a built-in backlighting mechanism so images may be viewed clearly even outdoors in sunny weather. As a result, the Optio S6 makes it easy to compose shots, playback recorded images for confirmation and select functions with smooth menu navigation.

PENTAX will ship the Optio S6 in October 2005 for under $350 U.S.

PENTAX Imaging Company is an innovative leader in the production of digital and film cameras, scopes, eyepieces, binoculars, lenses, mobile printers, scanners and internet cameras.
