Skinnable Pentax RS1000 Compact Camera Announced

It’s not often you see a camera that offers you personalization options, but the Pentax Optio RS1000 definitely offers you that. Aside from its imaging capabilities, this camera sports a removable faceplate that allows you to easily change its appearance as often as you want, popping in whatever color or design that you wish. The RS1000 initially ships with 11 standard skins, but you’ll receive a SkinIt gift card that allows you to design and order a free, precut vinyl skin as well as a stencil to create your own skin. Users will also be able to download the Adobe Air-based Pentax Personal Skin Designer that will allow them to import an image and save it as a PDF skin for printing. Aside from customization, the RS1000 is a standard 14-megapixel point-and-shoot camera, offering a 4x 27.5mm wide-angle lens, 3-inch LCD display, 720p HD video recording, creative digital photo filters, tracking autofocus, and a digital panorama mode. Expect to shell out $149.95 if you decide to pick up the RS1000 when it’s available this October.
