Pentax has announced a new 26x super zoom point-and-shoot digital camera called the X-5. The camera has a three-inch high-definition LCD screen on the back and 16-megapixel resolution. The rear LCD can also be tilted for comfortable shooting at different angles.

The camera supports ISO up to 6400 and uses a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor. The camera features triple shake reduction technology to help keep images clear at high zoom levels and has an electronic viewfinder. In addition to shooting high-resolution still images, the camera can also record full HD video at 30 frames per second. The camera will be available in September for $279.95.
