The new firmware versions for the Pentax H90, I-10, W90 and X90 all contain the same fixes, related to use of Eye-Fi wireless-capable Secure Digital cards with the cameras. In all cases, the new firmware releases carry version number 1.01.

The updates allow all four cameras to remember Eye-Fi function settings after being power-cycled. They also disable support for Eye-Fi’s “Endless Memory Mode”, which automatically deletes images from the Eye-Fi card once they’ve been successfully transferred via Wi-Fi. Finally, the firmware updates change behaviour so that Eye-Fi transfer ceases as soon as the yellow battery level warning indicator is displayed, as a precaution that stops the camera from powering down during a wireless transfer due to low battery power.

Wannabe pro photographers looking for a high-end compact digital camera that delivers the power of an SLR, should really consider the new Pentax Optio X90.

The power of an SLR with the ease of a compact. That’s what Pentax would like you to believe its Optio X90 offers and, according to a Photography Blog review, that’s about what you can expect. The 12 megapixel, 26x superzoomer’s lens offers amazing flexibility without doing the lens-swap shuffle, and image quality was said to deliver very good with “striking colours” (it’s a British site, mind).

he Pentax Optio X90 is a brand new super-zoom compact camera featuring a 26x image-stabilized zoom lens with a focal range of 26-676mm. Successor to the X70 model, the X90 has a 12 megapixel sensor, 2.7 inch screen, full range of creative shooting modes and can record 720p HD movies.

The Optio X90 superzoom comes with a 12megapixel sensor and a 26x 26-676mm lens with a sensor-shift Shake Reduction system, and if we’re to believe the folks from the Photography Blog (duly credited below), the X90 is an accessible all in one option for those looking for big zoom power combined with amazing picture quality.

This is definitely a camera with a focus on helping users, but there are controls for setting shutter and aperture priority, and you can go fully manual if you like to work it, work it. Pentax’s shooter doesn’t score a perfect recommendation, with an inability to optically zoom while filming being a definite bummer, but the X90 earns high marks for its combination of performance and usability — and at $399 it’s something of a good deal, too.
