My Experience
Being a mother and a pathological picture taker go hand in hand, right? In trying to capture the special moments with family and all the moments in between, I carry my camera's with me everywhere. Though I thought my compact digital camera was of fair quality, it was nothing in comparison to the Pentax Optio RS1500!

The Optio's compact sleek design makes it convenient to carry with me just about anywhere.  With the included fashion skins I can  express my style and even match my camera to my outfit, if I so desire. Pentax, has taken it one step further with their customizable skin templates, with your image and a printer you can design a custom skin that matches your personality perfectly.

Snapping perfect photo's is simple with the Optio's 14 Megapixel resolution - the camera captures memories with a vibrant crisp perfection every time. Another plus? I love how fast images are captured with the Optio! With my old compact digital camera there was a slight delay.....and with little ones that are constantly on the move this would often mean missing that perfect shot. This camera is also pleasantly overflowing with special features and on-board editing options. The Small Face Filter allows you to reduce the size of faces in your images for well proportioned portraits, and the Natural Skin Tone feature enhances skin tone while smoothing blemishes.  Enhance your pictures with a cute frame border, with the Frame Composite feature, and take your photo's to a new level of perfection with the Red-Eye Compensation feature, Cropping Tools, Resizing Feature, and Digitally Filter's.  All of these features are available within the unit-and are easily navigated with the large 3 inch screen on the back of the camera.
