Pentax Optio E40 and M40 Announced

Pentax has announced the new Optio E40 and Option M40 compact digital cameras. Both build on the excellent success of the Optio E30 and Optio M30 compact digital cameras yet add new features.

The Pentax Optio E40 takes the place of the economy E30 and also runs on AA batteries. In addition, it now sports 8.1 megapixel resolution, new burst shooting capability, and higher ISO abilities. All of this for under $150 is quite a bargain.

The Pentax Optio M40 fills the ultra-slim role of the M30 while increasing the resolution to 8.0 megapixels. In addition, it includes the ability to use World Time for 28 time zones. Also included is the ability to call up images by date. To top it off, Pentax has added new red-eye reduction improvements.

These two cameras should be a great upgrade from the already excellent Optio E30 and M30 compact digital cameras. It is great to see Pentax staying current with technology and continually updating their digital lineup.
