Pentax Optio S

The Pentax Optio S is one of the smallest and lightest cameras I could find online, because I needed something light weight for my holiday to America. It has a lot of features, which I won't list but in short it's got 3.2 megapixels, 3x optical zoom, 1.6inch LCD screen, voice recorder and a movie mode. There are 7 modes for taking pictures which is Landscape, Flower, Portrait, Self-Portrait, Surf & Snow, Autumn Color and Sunset. The camera body is made of a brushed aluminum alloy and this makes it fell light but solid. One complaint is the battery doesn't last very long, so you don't get many hours of picture taking from it. I highly recommend purchasing one of these. It's an absolute marvel how much technology can be packed into the Pentax Optio S.
