Pentax Optio 330GS Digital Camera Camera


WHAT'S HOT: The Optio 330GS offers a nice balance of useful features and a comparatively low $300 price. And it can do a couple of parlor tricks that most point-and-shoots can't. First, the LCD rotates out 180 degrees, so you can frame your shots with...

Pentax gave the Optio 330GS a handy (albeit limited) collection of advanced controls for intermediate photographers, including a spot focus option and spot, center-weighted, and averaging metering. For managing your photos once you've moved them to...

Picture mode offers seven presets, including Landscape, Flower (brighter, more saturated colors), Portrait, Self-Portrait, Soft, Surf & Snow, and Sunset modes. These are definitely useful when shooting under more challenging conditions, automatically...

Pentax Optio 330GS


There are an awful lot of compact cameras out there these days. So how does the 330GS fare against the competition? Find out in our review

Good quality photos ; Compact, well-designed body ; Has an AF illuminator lamp ; Lots of controls for a point-and-shoot camera ; Bracketing options rarely seen even on expensive cameras ; Histogram in record and playback modes

Flip-out LCD not very useful (since it can't rotate) ; No sound in movie mode ; No shutter speed/aperture controls ; Bundle isn't great ; Expensive

While not really a standout in any area, the Pentax Optio 330GS does hold up against the competition. This small camera takes good quality pictures (though a little soft), offers a decent amount of manual controls, and is easy to use. The multiple...
