The Optio RS1000’s unique body design allows you to insert one of the included skins or any other design of choice, such as photographs, patterns or illustrations, between the body and the transparent front panel, giving you the ability to customize the camera’s appearance to match your mood, what you’re wearing, where you’re going– the possibilities are literally endless! It features a high-resolution 14 effective megapixel sensor, large 3.0-inch LCD monitor, high-performance 4X optical zoom lens and simple, user-friendly operation in a stylish and lightweight credit-card-sized body that’s compact enough to carry anywhere for every occasion.
- The Optio RS1000 features a removable transparent acrylic front panel. You can easily and totally change the camera’s appearance simply by setting a design sheet between the camera body and this panel. Use the designs included with the Optio RS1000 or create a one-of-the-kind original design using your own photographs, posters, or hand-drawn illustrations or patterns.
- Thanks to it’s 14 megapixel sensor, the Optio RS1000 delivers brilliant, high-quality images with well-defined details. Even when images are enlarged, you are assured of brilliant, high-resolution prints with edge-to-edge sharpness.
- The large, easy-to-view 3.0-inch LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 dots allows you to check composition and camera settings with just a quick glance.
- Wide-angle 4X optical zoom lens, covering focal lengths from approximately 27.5mm to 110mm (in the 35mm format) can easily handle a wide variety of subjects and scenes.
