PentaxShowcased in a display case during CeBIT 2004 in Hannove, Germany, but kept in al of our hands during PMA show in Las Vegas (February 2004) Pentax introduces this prototype as its highlight during the CeBIT show. I am pretty sure Photokina will give us some real exciting news. Video functionality has almost become a standard feature on modern digital cameras, however usually in a rather mediocre resolution of 160x120 or 320x240 pixels. With the Optio MX, Pentax now presents a camera the size of a cell phone that will also convince video fans with full VGA quality (640x480 pixels). And thanks to its 3.2 Megapixels resolution in the photo mode, digital photographers won't need to compromise, either.
CeBIT introduction of the Pentax Optio MXWhether at sports events, on trips or at parties and family get-togethers, the Optio MX changes from the photo to the video mode and back again at the press of a button.

Thanks to the powerful optical 10x zoom, even far-away motifs or events can be turned into full-size photos or videos. Using the 1.8 inch horizontally and vertically adjustable LC display on the back of the housing, the photographer or video filmer has a good grasp of the situation at all times. This is also guaranteed by the handle, which ensures jiggle-free pan shots and a sure grip.

First-class video quality is made possible with the camera's MPEG 4 compression format. Here the length of the video is only limited by the size of the SD card used. The days when fathers didn't know which camera to take to the playing field or on vacation are finally a thing of the past. The Pentax highlight at this years' CeBIT can be marveled at as a prototype in a display case and will be available from summer 2004 for a sensational Euro 500 at specialty retailers.

Pentax will release extensive information and technical data in time for the product introduction.
