A family of compact and colorful Optio, Pentax today added a newcomer, the RZ18. On the menu, a device to narrow format, but also an ultra-zoom, 720p HD video and still color. White, orange or black metal, the Pentax Optio RZ18 distinguished mainly by its more compact 18x ​​optical zoom lens corresponding to a 25-450mm wide-angle. It provides access to a digital panorama combining three images, but also with a mode “Wide Digital,” which, by combining two images, reproduced an image comparable to wide-angle image captured with a 19mm objective. With a CCD sensor of 16 megapixels, it offers a new treatment system image capture zone by zone, but also an image stabilization by moving the sensor “pixel track” for reduce image blur. We also find ways of shooting automatic with Auto Picture comprising 16 types of classic scenes. Face Recognition (up to 32 in 0.03 seconds!), Smiles and eyes closed allows beginners to optimize their chances to succeed in their shots.
