Pentax Optio S6 review

 

Pentax Optio S6

Compact and attractive design; well built; easy to use.

Photos suffer from some lens artifacts; slow; little to no manual exposure control.

The Pentax Optio S6 is a well-built, compact, and attractive camera that is a pleasure to use for snapshots but won't dazzle with its photo quality.

Pentax has updated its slim and stylish pocket camera once more, but does the Optio S6 bring enough new features to the table?

If you're looking for an ultra-compact camera that can deliver good quality pictures with a minimum of fuss, the Optio S6 should certainly be near the top of your list. It is well made, attractively designed, and is one of the smallest and lightest...

Pentax is gaining ground in the good-looking compact stakes

We've long been enamoured with the Canon's Ixus range, but the new Optios are equally attractive. Take the S6: from the front it takes the concept of a simple silver rectangular box with a lens totally to heart...

Pentax Optio S6

 

Pentax Optio S6 Review. This is one of the most compact digital cameras you are likely to find. It scores well for ease of use.

Simple design ; Ease of use

Picture quality ; Shutter lag

Although the Pentax Optio S6 scores highly in a number of areas the critical area of picture quality lets this camera down. With a slow shutter response too this camera proves to be a disappointment.
