Just a few weeks ahead of PMA, Pentax has just announced two new compact digital point-and-shoot models and an update to a cheap-o line.

Retro seems to be the way to go for camera manufacturers these days and Pentax is jumping on the bandwagon with the brand new Optio I-series. The I-10’s design is reminiscent of classic SLR styling with modern day features including: a 12.1-megapixel CCD sensor, 2.7-inch widescreen LCD, HD (720p) video capture at 30fps, and a 5x optical zoom lens (28mm-140mm). It can even be triggered remotely and comes with a mechanical sensor shift shake reduction system as well as Pixel Track Shake Reduction for blur-free images.
