Pentax Optio RS1500 announcement clippings

There are a couple of ways to personalize the Optio RS1500. One can immediately dress the camera in a choice of 10 skins with contemporary designs that ship with the product simply by adding a skin, replacing the faceplate panel, and snapping on the lens ring. Or, alternatively, visit the PENTAX SKINS Gallery or download the PENTAX PERSONAL SKIN DESIGNER Adobe Air-based software. Use the digital designer to import a photo or digital image and save a skin as a PDF for printing on a color printer.

Besides a unique, completely customizable design, the Optio RS1500 features 14 megapixels, a large three inch LCD monitor, a high-performance 4X optical zoom lens covering 27.5mm wide angle to 110mm telephoto and simple, user-friendly operation.  Encased in a lightweight body about the size of a credit-card, the Optio RS1500 is compact enough to carry anywhere.
