Pentax Optio 750Z


Pentax Optio 750Z

Category: Serious Amateur

The Pentax Optio 750Z is a compact digital camera that is feature packed. It has 7 megapixels resolution, a 5x optical zoom, super macro at 2 cm, and real-time warning display for overexposed (washed out) areas and under exposed (blacked out) areas.

The Optio 750Z has 10 shooting modes for convenient and versatile shooting: Program, Aperture-priority AE, Shutter-priority AE, Manual, USER, Picture, Panorama assist, 3D image, Digital filter and Movie.

Pentax designers have crafted the 750Z to be traditional looking, with a classic film camera design; only the 1.8-inch, 134,000-pixel swivelling LCD monitor gives it away as a digital camera. A hybrid AF system enhances auto focus and provides 11-point area selectable AF.

Other features:

  • TIFF format recording that stores images without compression.
  • Five auto bracketing functions that allow shooting with different levels of Exposure, White Balance, Sharpness, Saturation, and Contrast.
  • Digital exposure metering mode - Upon selection of Digital exposure metering mode, the user can use the Optio750Z as a high-performance digital exposure meter, with display of EV values at up to two separate points on the monitor for high-precision metering.
  • World Time: Displays the time in 68 cities (28 time zones).
  • Alarm Clock: Displays an image with alarm (max. three memory settings) with snooze function.
  • DPOF, ExifPrint and PRINT Image MatchingIII compatibility
  • PictBridge-compatible

The Pentax Optio 750Z is targeted to serious amateur photographers who want high quality images from a compact digital camera.
