Telephoto (top) and wide angle

The Optio E70L comes with a 5.7-17.1mm/f2.9-5.2 3x optical zoom, equivalent to 32-96mm in the 35mm format. It’s not as wide as some offerings but you can squeeze a surprisingly large amount of side detail at the wide setting.

Night shot with flash (top) or with Night Potrait mode

Two shots taken at night. One with flash and the second, using the Night Portrait mode. The latter works by using a slow shutter speed - in this case, one second. It improves exposure but the cost is increased camera shake.

Pentax Option E70L

The Optio E70L comes with ArcSoft PhotoImpression and VideoImpression software. It offers a number of useful editing features and beginners will certainly find it friendly to use.

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops
