Pentax intros 'chameleon' camera

And a compact with a 10x optical zoom too

Application security programs and practises

In addition to the K-r DSLR, Pentax also rolled out a couple of compacts today, both part of its Optio line.

Pentax Optio RS1000

RS1000: you want custom covers, it's got 'em

First up, the RS1000, described as the "chameleon" of compacts becase you'll be able to clip any of a selection of colourful decals to the front of the camera.

Pentax has launched a website where you can download skin design and print software, or download pre-created ones.

Behind such frills sits a compact, "credit card-sized" lightweight compact with a 14Mp sensor, a 27.5mm wide angle lens with 4x optical zoom and 720p HD video recording capability, and a 3in, 320,000-dot LCD.

The RZ10's claim to fame is a 10x optical zoom 28mm wide angle lens, all placed before a 14Mp sensor. There's a 2.7in, 230,000-dot LCD round the back, and all the features you'd expect from a modern compact in between.

It also supports Eye-Fi wireless SD cards for network connectivity.

The RS1000 and the RZ10 will both be out mid-October for €129 (£107) and €179 (£149), respectively. ®
