This post is illustrated with the Asahi Pentax Auto 110 compact SLR ad from the early 80′s magazine because this is what Pentax I-10 is intended to resamble. Click the image if you want to take a closer look at one more piece of Pentax history.
Appeared on January 26, 2010 – 30 years after its source of inspiration – Pentax I-10 is already available in the stores, in black and white colors. The price is quite reasonable for a modern 5x wide-zoom (28-140mm) 1/2.3″ Shake Reduction digicam. And reviews (with full size samples) keep coming to help you decide can you “be a serious photographer any minute of the day” with Pentax I-10 as you or your father (or even grandpa) were with Asahi Pentax Auto 110.
Impress Watch have a nice review in Japanese but with a loads of pictures as usual. Also, you can always try the online translation from which you can learn that the Pentax I-10 is built around exterior design, retro style cuteness and easy-of-use. Frankly, design is the only thing that differs Pentax I-10 from the horde of modern mid-range digicams.
