New PENTAX camera features smile capture and blink detection

PENTAX camera model Optio e70

Finally, a camera to take the perfect pics no matter how drunk you or your friends are. PENTAX is releasing two new pocket-sized cameras at CES. First up is the less expensive Optio E70. A camera that takes AA batteries and has a number of features to make picture-taking mindless. With Auto Picture mode, the camera automatically selects from seven shooting modes for the best picture in any situation. The Optio E70 also features Pixel Track Shake Reduction technology, Advanced Face Recognition (32 faces in 0.03 seconds) and Smile Capture and Blink Detection. As long as you don’t drop it, it seems pretty hard to take a bad picture.
