Pentax Optio T10 First Impressions Review

 

With the announcement of the T-series, Pentax has released a point and shoot digital camera with new and innovative features which will surely separate it from the competition. The Pentax Optio T10 is the first in the T series, a series title which...

Once you understand the focus options and usse them the reported slow focus time is not a problem ; A longer battery life between charges would be nice but a second battery solves that problem. Considering the large LCD and the amount of use you make...

Product Specifications

PENTAX Optio T10 is distinguished by an extra-large 3.0-inch, high-definition LCD monitor for easy viewing and a touch-display control system that allows you to program the camera by simply touching icons on the panel as well as customize images directly on the panel. Along with the powerful raw performance of the camera's picture quality and its 3X-optical zoom lens coupled with a slim body profile and a simple, intuitive interface, PENTAX has engineered a camera that puts the fun back into not only "taking" and "viewing" but also "creating" images with its playful touch-display control.
