'Results are better at telephoto, though there is again evidence of blurring in the corners and a small amount of chromatic aberration visible.'
'By ISO 3,200, noise takes over and images become unusable.'
'The Pentax Optio Z10 is a new entry from Pentax that features a 7x optical zoom in a very slim body (similar to the Casio Exilim EX-V8).'
'impressively, the zoom itself operates entirely within the constraints of the camera, so there's never a barrel that you have to wait to extend or retract.'
'performance is sluggish'
'it is certainly not meager in features'
'The LCD screen is particularly hard to see in even moderate sunlight.'
'Tiny and easy to use, this subcompact may not be the sexiest in its class,'
'For a start, there?s no smart design to compromise ? this new Optio comes in a plastic case that couldn?t be any more traditional if it had half-timbered walls'
'convoluted menu system'
'The menu labels look like badly
scanned text, and running through the system is slow.'
'its biggest shortcomings are found in optical and LCD viewfinders that give you the worst of both worlds.'
'unless you memorize the arrangement, you'll be forever hunting through the dial and LCD menu to find what you need for any given situation. '
'Optio 33WR were in my price range and sounded like good cameras.'
'Do yourself a favor and buy a four-pack of NiMH rechargeable batteries and a fast charger right away.'
'The Optio 33WR may not be to everyone's taste with its plain, square design, but looks aren't everything.'
'You can't make any quick battery or media changes when you're shooting on a tripod because the mount is right next to the hatch.'
'The built-in flash has only four modes and lacks an illuminator beam for assisting low-light focusing.'
'The Pentax delivered rich color right out of the camera.'
'very good flare and contrast characteristics'
'the Optio 550 and Optio 450 are comfortable to hold and simple to operate.'
