In addition to the Pentax IQZoom 115G’s high-performance 3x zoom lens, this camera offers a wide range of advanced features and easy-to-use functions within its compact body. It offers multipattern metering, passive five-point autofocus, an auto zoom flash with red-eye reduction, an actual-image zoom viewfinder, a panorama mode, and an LCD information panel. It has a full, flat front panel that protects the lens barrel from damage and makes carrying and storing effortless. When the power is turned off, the lens retracts within the front panel. It has a stylish black and silver body that fits comfortably in a shirt pocket or purse.
The Pentax IQZoom 115G lens features an aspherical lens element for sharp images, minimizing aberrations and ghost images. It offers a zoom macro capability, allowing the photographer to take clearly focused pictures from approximately 2.15 feet away from the subject.
The flash provides a metering system that detects low light and backlit shooting conditions. The built-in flash automatically provides fill-in illumination. It also offers a red-eye reduction feature and allows the photographer to create images using advanced flash techniques such as daylight synch, slow-shutter synch, and bulb synch. The user can also turn off the flash when taking pictures with ambient light.
A special panorama mode with midroll switching is possible for large group shots or landscapes. The actual-image viewfinder adjusts the size of its image area in proportion to the selected focal length. The Pentax IQZoom 115G also features a built-in diopter adjustment to customize the viewfinder to match the user’s eyesight. A self-timer and date imprinting provide this camera with added flexibility.
