The Pentax-original Auto Picture mode is upgraded with new modes in the Pentax Optio RZ10 to automatically select the most appropriate shooting mode for a given subject or scene by accurately assessing various photographic conditions on and around the subject. This user-friendly mode instantly and reliably selects one of 16 shooting modes (eight conventional modes plus eight new modes including Blue Sky, Sunset and Pet) and optimizes various camera settings including sensitivity and shutter speed to assure the best results with minimal effort by the photographers.

With a mechanical CCD-shift-type Shake Reduction (SR) mechanism and Pixel Track SR, the Pentax Optio RZ10's dual shake reduction system minimizes camera shake and image blur more effectively to help ensure sharp images even during sunset, indoors without flash and when shooting with a telephoto lens. By coupling approximately 14 effective megapixels assuring exceptional image resolution with a high-performance imaging engine capable of reproducing true-to-life colors, the Pentax Optio RZ10 delivers brilliant, high-quality images with well-defined details. Even when images are enlarged to large sizes, users are assured of sharp, high-resolution prints with outstanding edge-to-edge sharpness.

Pentax Optio RZ10 camera design
The Pentax Optio RZ10's casual but stylish design makes it perfect to accompany its owner anywhere and on all occasions - on trips, for day-to-day snapshots, and at holiday events. It is designed to be functional and maneuverable, while meticulous attention has been given to every part of the camera body ergonomics, including: smoothly rounded edges; an easy-to-hold, rubber-coated grip; and a beautiful, lustrous alumite-finish black lens barrel. In addition to the standard color of chic black, the Pentax Optio RZ10 also comes in three vivid, lively colors designed to give it a sportier appearance.
