Pentax A40 does DivX recording
Digital cameras that record video into the DivX format aren’t exactly very common. The Pentax A40 brings that function to the average consumer, featuring 3x zoom, a 12 megapixel rating, as well as mechanical shot stabilization for those who have shaky hands whenever they try to capture an image of that hottie at a convention. DivX recording definitely makes this worth your money as you can then distribute it over a torrent network without having to go through any encoding process. Additional functions include face recognition with Natural Skin Tone mode and a Half-Length Portrait mode that uses any spare pixels above to autocrop a photo to shoulder length.
