New ultra-thin Pentax Optio S1 offers 14MP resolution and 5x optical zoom

The Pentax Optio S1 offers the physicality to fit inside a pocket and specs to take a decent photo. With a 14MP sensor and 5x optical zoom, from a 28mm wide angle lens, the 20mm wide Pentax Optio S1 looks to be a perfect fit for photographers shy on room but still wanting to take an above-average snap.

To cope with the optical magnification mechanical stabilization and auto ISO increase is employed alongside a seperate processing-based system for movie recording. There’s a 720p HD movie mode on offer and fully automatic scene mode alongside the likes of face detection and digital filters.

As with most compacts in the current climate there’s a choice of colours, in this instance Black, Chrome and Aquamarine Green being used.The Pentax Optio S1 will cost £119 when release, for more information head to Pentax’s website
