Photography Blog has reviewed a new travel-zoom camera from Pentax that starts at 25mm and ends at 450mm. The camera is called Pentax Optio RZ18 and comes with 16 megapixels and a large 3″ LCD screen in addition to be able to record HD movies.

Some key features for the Pentax Optio RZ18 camera:
-16 megapixel image sensor
-18x optical zoom lens (25-450mm equivalent)
-3″ LCD screen
-720p HD movie recording
-Face detection
-Sensor shift image stabilization

The reviewer over at Photography Blog ends up giving the Optio RZ18 a “Above Average” rating with an overall score of 3.5 out of 5 possible stars. The Pentax camera scores highest on value for your money, a little lower on ease of use and features, while it scores lowest on image quality and design. This Optio camera comes with a pretty low price tag, but the average image quality and long processing times hinders it from getting a top score. Pentax really needs to work on the image quality if they want to play with the top camera brands.
