Pentax Optio T30 M30

Pentax early today launched a pair of new compact point-and-shoots, targeted alternately at entry and mid-range users, both containing 7.1-megapixel sensors, 3X optical zoom lenses, and SDHC support for cards larger than 2GB. At the top of the line is the Optio T30. One of the thinnest cameras with a 3-inch LCD, its screen is also touch-sensitive and serves as the chief control of the camera's settings; it can also be used to edit or add notes to photos. Face recognition auto-focus and auto-exposure help generate better portraits, the company says. The T30 stores 20MB of internal memory and should sell for $350 when it arrives in March.

While using a smaller 2.5-inch LCD without touchscreen functions, the Optio M30 (shown) is slimmer still at 0.7 inches thick and retains virtually all the control and image quality of its more elaborate sibling. Pentax also plans to deliver the M30 in March, when it should retail for $200.

Photos of both models are available after the jump.
