Pentax Optio60

This new 6 megapixel unit from Pentax is aimed at the entry-level crowd, as evidenced by its "Simple mode" that allows the shooter to concentrate on the subject while the Optio60 selects the optimal settings automagically. Other specs include a 2.0-inch LCD monitor, 3X optical zoom and 4X digital for combined 12X zoom capability, 12MB built-in memory with SD slot for expansion, and USB mass storage compatibility. It can run on AA batteries, making it a decent choice for travellers. The going price will be about $200 when it rolls out in the US next month.
