Pentax Optio X announcement clippings

Offering twice the versatility in digital imaging, the PENTAX  Optio X opens with just a twist of the hand and positions the lens on one side for shooting freedom and the generous LCD monitor on the other side for viewing ease.  With 5.0 effective megapixel clarity, a 3X optical zoom and a unique design that allows both above-the-head and hip-level shots, the Optio X also features a high-performance, 2.0  inch, low-temperature poly silicon TFT color LCD monitor.

Optio X users will not sacrifice size for innovation.  The Optio X body is a mere .7 inch thick making it the thinnest model in the entire Optio series.  The Sliding Lens system — a unique PENTAX feature that allows the lens to be completely retracted inside the body as soon as the power is turned off — makes the Optio X so easy to carry in a bag or pocket.

The Optio X also features a new "My Menu" function, which allows users to group together frequently used functions for easy future access.  With such wide-ranging capabilities and customized functions, the Optio X is a comprehensive personal digital imaging tool designed to be carried everywhere.
