Pentax Optio E60

Pentax, we’ve noticed in the past, loves to wait until late in the day to unveil new digital cameras.

The Pentax Optio E60 is a budget focused 10.1-megapixel shooter which has a typical mix of features for a camera of this design. It sports 3x optical zoom lens and is powered by AA batteries. There’s a variety of shooting modes, including a “Green” mode which, while called green, has nothing to do with the environment and seems to instead be targeted towards newbies.
