With 8.0 megapixels, the PENTAX Optio M40 features an ultra-slim, sophisticated metallic body offering a 3X optical zoom and a large and easily viewable LCD monitor.  The user-friendly Optio M40 also features Face Recognition and digital Shake Reduction. A Digital Shake Reduction mode reduces camera shake and subject blur when photographing still images. The sensitivity is adjusted automatically to as high as ISO 3200 to match the brightness of the subjects to enable photography with faster shutter speeds and images with less blur.
