Pentax Optio S7 announcement clippings

The thin, compact Optio S7 body features an attractive design that is comfortable and convenient to carry for travel, special events and everyday photography.  A 3X optical zoom lens housed in the slim, lightweight body features the PENTAX original Sliding Lens System and high-density mounting technology. The camera is equipped with a Blur Reduction mode, a feature that allows photography at faster shutter speeds for sharper images even in dim lighting conditions such as night scenes and indoor sporting events. In this mode, the camera automatically adjusts the sensitivity to as high as ISO 1600 to match the brightness of the subject. The Optio S7 includes the new Face Recognition function, which allows you to take bright, beautiful photos of people with perfectly focused faces free of shadows caused by exposing for the background or for the colors of clothing.
