The Pentax Optio E90 is one of three digital cameras (E90, H90, I-10) released in February 2010. The E90 is the entry-level unit in the series and, in fact, the dullest as well, which is evident by its lackluster design. On the bright side, the E90 is also the cheapest, at only $99.95, but sit till delivers everything needed from a basic compact camera: a 10MP sensor for high-quality still captures; VGA video recording; and SD/SDHC memory expansion. Additional features include a 2.7” display, USB/AV connectivity, and two color options: red & black. Unfortunately, the E90 relies on conventional AA batteries.
