Pentax’s Optio RZ-18 Digital Camera puts 16 megapixels and a whopping 18x zoom into a tiny camera. Something that fits in your pocket and still zooms from an equivalent 25-450mm, with digital image stabilization. You can get very close to the action without having to be very close to the action. The large 3-inch LCD has HVGA resolution (460,000 dots) makes it easy to use. There’s a great Auto Picture mode, plus other controls and creative special effects. Macro focus is a very close 4cm (about 1.5 inches). It has face detection to focus and expose people well, even a pet recognition feature, and it shoots HD video at 720p.
