'The X90 can certainly match its main rivals in terms of specification, and is currently selling for around £274, which is fairly competitive. 6 comments.'
'Bottom Line - Pentax's X90 is an incredibly versatile 12.1-Megapixel Super-Zoom digicam, featuring an awesome 26x optical zoom lens with shake reduction, 720p video capture and full manual controls. '
'The Pentax Optio X90 is an entry-level DSLR designed to make the SLR experience less complex for those used to simple point-and-shoot digital cameras.'
'Looking at the sharpness of the shots the Finepix S1800 does well for a camera with a wide angle lens, especially when the lens is zoomed out. '
'Shutter-lag is a bit disappointing at about 0.1 second when pre-focused and 0.5 seconds including focusing time.'
'Image quality not up to par with competition; Weak flash; Poor HD video results; Excessive noise above ISO 400 makes the higher options almost useless; Tiny EVF eye piece; LCD is reflective; Sporadic white balance results when using Auto setting; Lack of Aperture value control in the specified A position on the mode dial makes it difficult to control DOF (either wide open or closed down, nothing in between). '
'The Fuji S1800 will be available in February 2010 at a retail price of $229.95.'
