Pentax preps 26x superzoom

Building bridges

Application security programs and practises

Pentax has popped out its latest bridge camera: the 12.1Mp X90, complete with 26x optical zoom.

Still insufficient? Then you can call on the 6.25x digital zoom to zero even further into your subject.

In addition, the X90 boasts a 26-276mm 35mm-equivalent focal length range, 1cm macro mode, aperture of f/2.8-5.0, a nine-spot autofocus that will auto-track and a ISO range of 80 to 6400.

Pentax's X90: zoom more than 32x

There's a 2.7in LCD to view your shots - there's an electronic viewfinder too - and all the usual digital camera detection modes. The 1/2.33in CCD will move to compensate for shaky hands and if that's not enough, the X90 has digital shake reduction too.

The camera will grab 720p HD video which you can cast upon your HD TV through the X90's HDMI port. There's 30MB of on-board storage - for more, you'll need to slot in an SDHC card. The whole lot weighs 428g.

Launched today in Japan, the X90 is already up on the Pentax UK website. No word yet, though, on when it will go on sale here, or how much it'll cost when it does. ®
