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.
