Pentax Optio S10 review

 

With the no-frills Optio S10, Pentax bucks the trend of loading up point-and-shoot cameras with neat-sounding but dubiously useful features--OK, so I'm not a big face-detection fan--and sticking true to its photographic roots by including some very...

Excellent photo quality for the price; generally fast performance; no frills but well-chosen snapshot feature set.

USB port and charger connector under battery cover; limited focal range for macro shooting.

A surprisingly nice budget ultracompact, the no-frills Pentax Optio S10 delivers excellent photo quality and decent performance for relatively little cash.

Pentax Optio S10 Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

Claiming to be one of the smallest and lightest 10 megapixel digital cameras in the world, the stylish Pentax Optio S10 couples its high resolution CCD imager to a 3x optical zoom lens with a fairly typical 38 - 114mm focal range. A 2.5-inch 232,000...

Power for the S10 comes from a proprietary Lithium-ion rechargeable battery or optional AC adapter, and the camera stores images on SD/SDHC cards or 22MB of built-in memory. There's also USB 2.0 High-Speed computer connectivity and NTSC / PAL video out...

Pentax Optio S10: 10 MP Camera

 

Most people, even professional photographers, are in need of a good ultra-compact digital camera. The Pentax Optio S10 is definitely small enough to be considered an ultra-compact - it just happens to be one of the smallest 10 megapixel cameras in the...

Pentax has become a leader in digital imaging with their innovative lens design, which has improved over the past 4-5 years. The Pentax Optio S10 is a great example of what a good lens can do for image quality. This camera produces very good quality...

Pentax Optio S10 Review

 

The Pentax Optio S10 won't quite fit in an Altoids tin like the original Optio S did, but it's still very compact and stylish. It's a 10 megapixel camera, with a nice 2.5 inch LCD and a 3x optical zoom. It also gets the latest "soft" features, like...

Nice compact size and nice styling, Easy to use, Good battery life, Quick operation

Tiny buttons on the back of the camera, Auto focus not accurate more times than I would like

Pentax Optio S10

 

This pocket-sized Pentax camera is very easy to carry with you to all sorts of events and it'll do a good job when shooting scenery or people. It's a ...

Very compact size, sharp-looking shots, good colours

Some noticeable fringing, lens distortion, some noticeable noise, can't manually change the aperture and shutter settings

It's small, can take good looking 10-megapixel-sized images and it's easy to use. It'll struggle a little in low-light conditions, as most cameras do, but it's still a decent compact camera for all occasions.

Pentax Optio S10 review

 

The S10 is only a few millimetres smaller than most compact cameras but it looks tiny, as it's barely taller than its 2in screen.
