Pentax readying designer H90, L10 cameras

Pentax due to bow two retro cams Tuesday

A discovery on an online reseller's website Sunday (since pulled) has revealed that Pentax plans to draw attention at the upcoming PMA photography show with two unique cameras. The Optio H90 and L10 (pictured at top) will both carry a vintage look, with the former carrying some of the style of a rangefinder while the L10 will resemble a conventional film camera. Little is immediately shown in the images beyond the look, though the L10 will have a 5X, 5.1-25.5mm lens; both are regular compact cameras rather than Micro Four Thirds or DSLR models.

Although no release dates are attached to the images, Photo Rumors notes a previous tip that had put the launch of new cameras this Tuesday and that a "special retro design" would grace at least one of these models. Either camera should be relatively conventional in features apart from the look.

Launch information is still absent, but a third model could appear at the same time.
