Pentax Optio 430RS review

 

Pentax Optio 430RS

Interesting features; ultracompact design; good color accuracy; no shutter delay.

Pentax Optio 430 RS

Optio 430RS - A lightweight champion

 

The Optio 430RS is a super contender in the middle-priced segment of the digital photography scene. I purchased this from a retailer for Christmas and have used it extensively since then. I have taken movies, which it shoots with excellent quality in...
