Even with the Consumer Electronics Show, Pentax showed off two new cameras that are known as the P70 and the E70 before hand. While both feature advanced face detection, which can detect up to 32 faces in .03 seconds, the cameras will offer different megapixels and be different sizes. The Optio P70 comes with a 12-megapixel lens, a 4x optical zoom, and a 2.7-inch screen. It can also shoot video footage at an astounding 720p quality; though will only offer a lowly 15 frames per second while doing so. The Optio E70 will be able to take pictures up to 10-megapixels, with a 3x optical zoom, and a 2.4-inch LCD screen. Neither the P70 nor the E70 cameras feature a viewfinder, and they both sell for $199.95 and $139.95, respectively.
