Pentax X70 First Impressions Digital Camera Review

Pentax's foray into the world of ultra-zooms doesn't break the mold of the majority of other such cameras.


For the first time, Pentax has dipped its toes into the ultra-zoom category with the X70, which offers an impressive 24x zoom, shoots at 12-megapixel resolution and uses CCD-shfit stabilization to help prevent camera shake.
