The Optios

Pentax EI-200

This was a last minute bid on Ebay and very nice it is too. The camera has a 3x optical zoom uses CF cards and runs on 4 AA cells. Only having 2 megapixels doesn't stop the image quality being superb, as the sample at the bottom shows (click on it for a full size version).

Whilst this camera was also sold under their own name by H.P. the specification, as far as I can discover, is the same.

The EI series consisted of 4 bodies, all developed in partnership with H.P.
