Pentax Optio 330 Review

 

It's a big picture, but in reality the Optio 330 is about half the size of how the image above will look on your screen. It measures just 92 x 62 x 31 mm (3.6 x 2.4 x 1.2 in) and that makes it only just bigger than Kyocera's tiny S3. The Optio 330 was...

Good colour, good white balance presets Lens exhibited hardly any chromatic aberrations Low noise at ISO 200, camera appears to have some flat area noise reduction Live view histogram Ultra-compact size, light weight Fast performer, good startup,...

Lens resolution lets down its 3 megapixel label Noisy lens extension and zoom motor Produces 'overly contrasty' images Images can seem 'over-processed' and almost video like Unsophisticated bayer interpolation / sharpening algorithms Sometimes...

Here's my rating of the Pentax Optio 330: (3 megapixel ultra-compact)

The Pentax Optio 330: A Fun, Feature-Packed Digital Camera

Pentax Optio 330

 

Back in the "old days", Canon was the only game in town when it came to tiny digital cameras. Soon came Casio, and then Kyocera, and now Pentax. These mini-cameras are very popular, since they're easy to pocket, and can do about anywhere

Very small, good looking, easy to carry camera ; Very good bundle ; Many manual controls, unusual for a micro-camera ; Histograms and exposure info in record and playback mode ; Can use zoom in movie mode ; Very simple to use

Proprietary battery ; No sound in movie mode ; Focusing troubles in lower light ; Heats up after a few minutes ; Zoom and scroll", manual focus features could better

It's a real close race between the Optio and the Finecam. The features are very similar, but I prefer the Optio's use of the CompactFlash format, rather than MultiMediaCard on the Finecam. The Finecam also required the use of a card reader, since it...
