Budget-priced and easy to use, the Pentax M60 is good value for money.

The Optio M60 looks and feels a lot more expensive than it actually is. The body is all aluminium and feels solidly well made, and the overall design is attractive without being flashy. The shape is easy to hold securely, with a protrusion on the front...

The Pentax Optio M60 is a 10Mp compact camera with a 5x optical zoom.

Pentax Optio M60 review

 

The cutesy touches won't be to everyone's taste, but the silver metal accents, 5x zoom and respectable image quality will make the Pentax Optio M60 attractive to adults too. It's certainly a package that suits the pocket -- in size and price

If you're on a tight budget, the M60 is great value for money

Design, value for money, ease of use

Performance, lens quality

For under £100 the Pentax M60 offers good build quality and an attractive, easy-to-use design. It's a bit slow and lens quality could be better, but it's excellent value for money.
