Pentax Optio 60 announcement clippings


An easy-to-understand “Simple mode” deserves the credit for lowering the learning curve of the PENTAX Optio60.  Set in this mode, users are free to concentrate on photography subjects while the Optio60 automatically selects optimal focus and exposure settings for scenes at hand.  Even more, the PENTAX Optio60 incorporates Manual exposure settings plus Aperture and Shutter priority modes to allow room for users to grow their photography skills.  

Composition with the latest PENTAX digital camera is just as simple.  The Optio60 features a large 2.0 inch LCD monitor plus an optical and actual-image zoom viewfinder with automatic diopter adjustment to enhance viewing for users who may lack perfect eyesight.

Finally, the Optio60 makes a perfect travel companion.  The camera is compatible with AA batteries and may be set in a Webcam mode to create broadcast live video links to distant family and friends.
