Pentax Optio SV announcement clippings

The unique PENTAX Sliding Lens system in the Optio SV allows the powerful 5X zoom lens to retract and fully recede into the camera housing, flush with the body frame.  The novel lens system significantly reduces both the depth and length of the entire camera while it delivers a powerfully high zoom ratio for outstanding image quality. First incorporated in the Optio S digital camera launched last year, this innovative system is featured on select PENTAX digital cameras.

Additional features on the Optio SV enhance image quality, operation and design. A high performance smc PENTAX lens with a newly developed ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) helps ensure quality images.  A special dial allows mode selection with a simple turn.  The Optio SV features a Picture mode that allows users to select an icon on the LCD monitor that matches the scene at hand.  Finally, the sleek design of the Optio SV is housed in a tough aluminum alloy case.
