PENTAX today took the wraps off of the PENTAX Optio S1 digital compact camera in several interesting colors such as chrome or glossy black or green. The 14 megapixel Pentax Optio S1 has a light body with 5 times optical zoom along with a 2.7" LCD. Other features in this little camera include an optical shake reduction system and the ability to take HD videos (720P). A remote control is also available. Right now you can buy it at the Pentax Web Store for $200 (it's on pre-order).

Here is a nice hands-on demo and review of the Pentax S1, which gets especially enjoyable starting at the 4:30 mark ;-)

Personally I think the only thing that could hold the Pentax Optio S1 back is image quality because it pretty much hit the spot on the feature set for a light pocket camera. The price is good at $200, and you bet that at Amazon or Newegg you'll see it at like $175-ish. I'm definitely looking forward to reading reviews of its picture quality, including indoor shots. If it's pretty good I just might go for this to replace my OLD Canon S400.
