An easy-to-understand "Simple mode" deserves the credit for lowering the learning curve of the PENTAX Optio60. The Optio60 automatically selects optimal focus and exposure settings for scenes at hand. Even more, the PENTAX Optio60 incorporates Manual exposure settings plus Aperture and Shutter priority modes to allow room for users to grow their photography skills.
The camera is also compatible with AA batteries and may be set in a Webcam mode to create broadcast live video links to distant family and friends.
PENTAX will ship the Optio60 digital camera next month and the price will be $200 US.
