Pentax Optio E75

Pentax today brought out an update to its most basic cameras in the Optio E75. The compact maintains the 10-megapixel sensor and 3X optical zoom of the E70 but grows the preview LCD from 2.4 to 2.7 inches. It continues to carry more recent software-driven features such as a full-auto scene mode, face detection with a face priority mode as well as smile detection.

Other features, including light sensitivity up to ISO 1,600 and a 640x480 video recording mode, also translate from the previous model. Pentax keeps the price of the E75 down to 119 Euros ($162) after tax by using AA batteries to power the camera instead of a lithium-ion battery. It ships to Europe in mid-June and is likely to be followed by an American release soon. [via Digital News Room]
