The 7MP 750Z produces A4 prints and even A3 enlargements, from a camera small enough to fit in your pocket

Ace results from a model that looks and feels like a ‘real' camera. The best quality and control you can fit in your pocket

Pentax Optio 750Z


A great compact camera for everyday use, the Optio 750Z is big enough to hold steady, small enough to be easily portable and looks superb. Image quality is excellent and while the sluggish playback is a pain, its not enough of a proble

Pentax Optio 750Z review


Review summary Thanks to the recent spate of fully featured, pocket-friendly 7-megapixel cameras from Pentax, Olympus, Sony, and Canon, serious photographers don't have to trade must-have capabilities for compact size. Pentax includes the fine-tuning...

Versatile swiveling LCD; full manual controls; solid macro capabilities.

No raw support; sluggish performance; image artifacts; no external flash connection.

A 7-megapixel shooter with a good design and feature set but compromised by slow performance and image problems.

Pentax Optio 750Z


A fun camera with lots of bells and whistles, the Pentax Optio 750Z, sadly, doesn't deliver top-quality images.

A very powerful and versatile camera with great menus; articulated LCD viewer, 5X zoom lens, focusable diopter on optical viewfinder, five bracketing modes; well-placed, easily accessible controls.

Problems with exposure and color reproduction. Slow bootup, no RAW mode, small LCD viewfinder, feels flimsy.

Pentax Optio 750Z Review


The 750Z was announced on 16th August 2004 as a part of Pentax's new line-up for the Photokina 2004 trade show. Pentax are clearly aiming for 'retro appeal' with this camera, from its fake leather front (it's rubber) to the chrome piping, big...

Neutral tone, conservative color response Average noise but high noise reduction Good automatic white balance Good macro performance Good battery life Five times optical zoom, good telephoto reach 1.8" fast refresh LCD with tilt & twist mechanism...

Intrusive noise reduction Higher than normal pincushion distortion Some vignetting visible Lens softness (corner issue a one-off?) Perhaps confusing / overpowering controls Slow startup, slow off to first shot taken No RAW format Limited image...

It's odd but there's something strangely appealing about the 750Z's retro styling, the faux leather front and chrome piping, it's almost comforting. Don't be fooled though this is one seriously modern camera with a huge range of functionality, both...
