Pentax Espio 115 M


Product Specifications

The Mission: to create a spy-sized camera with enough zooming power to capture your subjects from afar. The engineers at Pentax accepted this challenge when they created the "smart" IQZoom 115M. Weighing in at a mere 7.6 oz., the only thing big about this camera is its features. With a power zoom lens that ranges from a wide 38mm to true telephoto at 115mm, the 115M delivers razor sharp photos. Clearly the mission has been accomplished. Ultra compact full-flat body design weighs only 7.6 ounces. Zoom in to catch the subject's subtle expressions, or zoom out to capture the entire scene with the amazing 38mm-115mm power zoom lens. The passive autofocus system measures subject distance at five separate points to determine the optimum setting to produce images that are eyelash sharp. Programmed auto exposure combines with a multi-metering system to instantly select the ideal exposure setting. When the situation calls for extra lighting, an auto flash features responds instantaneously. Several Flash functions include flash-on mode to capture shadowed images against bright backgrounds, flash-off for situations where flashes are prohibited, bulb sync (with or without flash) for nighttime illumination, and slow shutter sync to expose subjects against evening light. Photos with a dark subject and light flooded background are a thing of the past due to the 115M's automatic backlight compensation capabilities. Move toward your subject, up to 25 inches away for a finely detailed close-up - zoom macro allows close-ups at any focal length. Auto film load, advance, rewind, and film speed setting. All you have to do is press the button. Expand your shooting options with a panorama mode you can switch to at any point in a roll. The pre-flash emission reduces red-eye and lets your subjects show their true colors. The large, easy-to-read LCD instruction panel displays all the vital information to ensure a smooth and simple ride. The "Actual Image" viewfinder shows the image size in relation to the zoom ratio, providing a concise preview of the finished photo. The adjustable diopter allows the user to match the viewfinder image to his/her eyesight. Get into the picture with the self-timer ten second shutter release delay. Just when you though life couldn't get any easier, an optional remote control allows you to operate the camera at a distance. This little gadget has a three second delay shutter release. Keep track of when pictures were taken with the IQZoom 115M Date model.
