Sporting an ultra-slim body with a fresh, textured design, the affordable Optio M30 features Digital Shake Reduction, Face Recognition AF and AE, and an Auto-Macro function that enables close-up photography up to two inches in Super Macro mode and less than four inches in Auto Macro mode. Loaded with outstanding image quality thanks to a 7.1 megapixel CCD and a 3X optical smc PENTAX lens (focal range covering angles of view equivalent to those of a 38-114mm lens in 35mm format), this camera is ideal for photographing a broad spectrum of subjects from landscapes, through sightseeing photographs, to portraits. The Optio M30 captures smooth, high-quality movies at 30 fps at a resolution of 640x480 pixels, which is comparable to movies taken with a camcorder. Easy to use, easy on the wallet - the Optio M30 is hard to beat!

  • Using a new compact battery and miniaturized circuitry, the M30 is extremely thin and compact
  • Digital Shake Reduction mode automatically selects higher ISO setting to prevent blur due to subject or photographer movement
  • The Auto Macro feature allows the M30 to automatically switch to the macro focusing mode which captures subjects down to 4 inches (10 cm)
  • Face Recognition Auto Focus and Auto Exposure automatically detects a persons face and assures properly exposed portraits
  • Mode pallet includes auto picture mode to automatically select the best settings
