Sharp lens, Wide aperture, Short shutter lag
Capable of a low-resolution burst mode
Solid product in more ways than one
Good photo quality, with respectable high ISO performance, Very rugged body
' The 12.4 effective megapixel K-r is Pentax’s follow-up digital SLR to the entry level K-x, a sound, good value starter option. '
'The Pentax K-r is one of the few worthy intruders, flaunting several improvements over its next in command, the Pentax K-x.'
'exceptionally fast performance'
'If Pentax can step up its efforts to make itself visible in the industry, the K-r is a competitive model in the entry-level dSLR category.'
'Highlight correction ineffective'
'Low light video capture is consistent with other cameras of this caliber, and color saturation remains almost identical to fully lit shooting.'
'Rugged waterproof camera with built-in GPS and 5X wide-angle optical zoom. '
'this digital camera is very light for a compact camera.'
'the low resolution (110K pixels) of the screen leaves things pretty grainy.'
'Bad night shots.'
'There's also a garish sticker extolling the features offered by the E40 you'll want to remove this pretty quickly if you have any taste.'
'many digital cameras are touted as amazing these days, but the Pentax Optio A30 is truly unique and offers photograph takers the chance to see what Pentax has to offer.'
'The lengthy cover tethers can be annoying when attempting to snap the cover back into the body of the camera quickly.'
'Folks with large hands might find the camera a little difficult to manipulate with regard to the OK button and four-way controller.'
'the rechargeable D-LI8 lithium ion battery allows for approximately 150 photos and 110 minutes of playback time.'
'The speaker and microphone are exposed and the perfect size for sand to get trapped in.'
'The W30 does not have a focus-assist lamp and acquiring autofocus in low light conditions was problematic.'
'all of the camera's watertight access covers lock automatically on closing, so there's less to check and forget before heading into the water'
'a quick 0.02-second shutter delay.'
'"Best point and shoot I have ever owned."'
'The 2.5-inch display is sharp but could be brighter and has an annoying habit of freezing up momentarily while that lazy autofocus is locking on.'
'The useful Exposure Compensation command is hard to find, and this is an obvious navigation mistake.'
'Slow shot-to-shot time.'
'the daylight image had slightly washed-out color with low color saturation'
'quick .05 second shutter release'
'Average snaps and movies.'
'With the optional, acrylic waterproof housing that is newly-designed for the Optio S4i, everywhere may well include the exciting world of underwater digital photography'
'large prints and full-size viewing it's disappointing.'
'If you have large hands, the S4i's small size will pose a challenge when you try to change the zoom with your thumb and keep your finger on the trigger while holding the camera one-handed.'
'Unfortunately, the resolution of the screen is not so hot, with just 85k pixels (compare that with 118k pixels on the PowerShot S410's 1.5" display).'
'the Optio 550 and Optio 450 are comfortable to hold and simple to operate.'
'very good flare and contrast characteristics'
