Alongside the 10x zoom Optio RZ10, Pentax also releases the Optio RS1000 digital camera that can be personalized using a choice of 11 standard skins that ship with it. Consumers can even use the included SKINIT gift card to design and order a free, high quality, pre-cut, 3M vinyl skin from skinit.com or download the PENTAX PERSONAL SKIN DESIGNER Adobe Air-based software to create their own skins.
At about the size of a credit card, the lightweight Optio RS1000 features 14 Megapixel sensor, 4x optical zoom lens with 27.5mm wide angle, and a 3-inch LCD screen. The customizable camera offers Face Detection AF & AE function, Auto Picture Mode, Digital Shake Reduction, Digital Panorama mode, creative filters, and Burst Shooting at a speed of 16 images in two seconds. It can record 1280x720p HD video and comes with the Movie Shake Reduction mode.
