Pentax has announced a new point-and-shoot digital camera with a massive 24x zoom lens. The lens covers a focal range from 26mm wide-angle to 624mm super telephoto. The camera also features a intelligent Zoom setting that allows zooming up to 3900mm. I suspect that is a new name for digital zoom and that image quality would be greatly affected when used.

On the rear of the camera is a 2.7-inch LCD and the X70 has an electronic viewfinder. The massive zoom levels require image stabilization to keep things clear and the X70 has image sensor shift shake reduction built-in.

The cam can identify 32 faces in a shot and has high-speed continual shooting at 11 images per second for up to 21 images in a row. The cam can also record video at 1280 x 720 resolution at 15 frames per second or 848 x 480 video at 30 frames per second. The camera is set to launch in April for $399.95.
