Pentax Optio RZ10 Review

 

The Pentax Optio RZ10 experiments with an interesting design and offers a dead-simple interface, but can't recover from poor image quality.

The Optio RZ10 is not a camera for dedicated photographers looking for a point-and-shoot. It’s adequate, but not outstanding. Instead, first-time or younger shooters will appreciate its good looks and host of in-camera pre-sets, and things like the...

Pentax Optio Z10 (Black) review

 

While most camera companies were designing cameras with sliding lens covers to mimic Sony's T-series cameras, Pentax didn't jump on that bandwagon. But, now that sliding covers have become a regular part of the digital camera design aesthetic, Pentax...

The Pentax has a 7x optical zoom lens; cute sliding lens cover design.

Slow between shots; no optical or sensor-shift image stabilization.

Pentax's Optio Z10 isn't quite as nice as the company's Optio S10, but its attractive price helps make up for its quirks and modest feature set.

Pentax Optio RZ10 Review

 

The Pentax Optio RZ10 is a new travel-zoom compact digital camera sporting a wide-angle 10x zoom lens. Offering a versatile focal range of 28-280mm, the Pentax RZ10 also features a 14 megapixel sensor, Dual Shake Reduction system, 2.7 inch LCD screen,...

The Optio RZ10 offers the same value for money as other recent Pentax compacts, combining the main attraction of a 10x zoom lens with a small and easy-to-use design. Sadly the below-par image quality and no-frills approach make the RZ10 hard to...

PENTAX Optio RZ10 Compact Camera

 

The PENTAX Optio RZ10 is the perfect Christmas gift for those wanting a new compact camera. It is a solid little chunk of technology featuring a new-design sensor which reproduces stunningly true-to-life colour and detail.

The 'Burst' mode allows the taking of up to 40 images at a rate of 9.1 pics per second - superb for those times when you need to capture a special moment of action. The automatic face recognition is fun to play with too. You can set it up to...
