The Pentax Espio mini is a pocketable 35mm compact camera with autofocus and a wide-angle prime lens by Pentax. In the US it was known as the Pentax UC-1. It was available in black, champagne or silver and is one of the more collectable cameras in the Espio range. The champagne finish has a common problem that it easily get's worn off, even with the slightest use, making it a cheaper option. It has a very sharp lens, and some say it's SMC grade. The UC-1 Model has a Date function that can be set on the LCD screen, while the Espio Mini not, and it replaces with a Panorama or Normal function indicator on it's display.
