The Pentax Optio M50 is equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens (angle of view equivalent to 36 to 180 mm lens in 35 mm format). A perfect zoom for portraits, landscapes, and other settings, the camera also features a digital zoom function (approx. 1x to 5.1x) for a maximum zoom equivalent to 25.5x. The Optio M50 features a large, 2.5-inch IPS LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 dots resolution for easy viewing of the screen during photography or when viewing images in a group.

The Auto Picture mode allows the camera to automatically determine the shooting conditions and program settings for Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, Normal, Flower and Sports mode. Digital Shake Reduction mode reduces camera shake and blur by adjusting sensitivity automatically to as high as ISO 6400 to match the brightness of the subjects.
