Pentax Optio P80 Black

We all love vacations. Enough Said. But what make vacations everlasting are the memories that we take back with us of it. They are what turn the vacation into a permanent etching on our minds. People who frequently go to all kinds of places – of scenic or historical significance – would love to carry a camera to be able to see those pictures long after the vacation is over. In many such cases, the ideal camera is a small lightweight camera like the Pentax Optio P80. This camera comes with a resolution of 12.1mp and the zoom capacity of 4x wide angle.

Design and Functioning

The Pentax Optio P80 sports a compact, ultra-slim body that makes it ideal for bringing along not only on trips and leisure events, but also on daily outings and business meetings. Though it comes in colours like Pearl Shimmer, Midnight Black and Minty Green, the Black option is the one that sells most. Pentax’s innovative Sliding Lens System and space-efficient high-density mounting technology have significantly contributed to a downsizing and weight reduction of the camera body, making the Optio P80 extremely compact and lightweight. Its Fast Face Detection technology sees up to 32 faces in as little as one-hundredths of a second for easy portrait photography, especially when it comes to a group pictures. The Smile Capture automatically takes the pictures when the subject smiles, and Blink Detection alerts the user if the subject’s eyes are closed when the shutter is released. The Optio P80 automatically raises its sensitivity to as high as ISO 6400, making it possible to use a higher shutter speed; this quality enables it to be used in dim lighting conditions as well as during night time. It comes with about 34MB of internal memory and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
