Pentax introduces tiny digital camera

Undated-AP -- For those who hate lugging a camera, but still like having one with them -- there is the Pentax Optio "S" digital.

Full-featured, with a three-times zoom lens and three-point-two megapixels, the Optio "S" can fit into an Altoids tin.

Pentax says that's possible partly because of the zoom lens. Instead of retracting on a single axis, it has three elements. The center element lifts up, back, and away.

The Optio "S" also has a secure digital card that is much smaller than other compact flash cards, and uses a smaller, proprietary battery.
