Pentax reveals new Optio S1 P&S (no, it's not a Canon Elph!)

Pentax has launched a new Optio P&S camera that is perhaps paying homage to the Canon Elph series. Or maybe it is made at the same camera sweatshop ;-) Regardless, the new Optio S1 has a 14mp sensor, 5x optical zoom lens (28-140mm eq) with sensor shift stabilization, 720p, HDR, and the usual assortment of consumer-tier features.

Not to go all Debbie Downer, but the Optios have developed a bad habit the last few years. The cuter the camera looks, the worse its IQ/reviews are. Perhaps the cuteness of the cameras raises IQ expectations? :)

Its opening price is $200 in the US market and 170 euro in the European market.
