With its retro styling the Optio I-10 is certainly distinctive, but is it any good?

First Look: Pentax Optio I-10 digital camera

 

The Pentax Optio I-10 is the latest compact camera to come out from Pentax and stands out from the crowd not because of a higher than average megapixel count, or smile technology, but because it offers a retro design similar to Pentax's Auto 110 film...

Big widescreen display, design, 24 scene modes, Auto button

Widescreen only maximised at 9MP, retro look might mean capabilities are confused with Panasonic or Olympus Micro Four Thirds models

The Pentax I-10 looks to offer you the usual Pentax compact camera capabilities in a rather eye-catching retro design. People we showed it too thought that it looked "cute" and rather "fun", however we also got questions as to whether it was a DSLR...

Pentax Optio I-10 review

 

Pentax takes a typical modern compact and gives it a retro cosmetic makeover. If the idea appeals, so might the end product.

Pentax Optio I-10 review

 

The Pentax Optio I-10 is designed with the retro look of a vintage Pentax Auto 110 film camera. Daniel Bell takes a look at this bang up to date digital version with a 5x optical zoom and 12.1Mp sensor.

Pentax Optio I-10

 

Designed like a DSLR, but does it perform like one?

A low-cost camera which doesn't offer anything out of the ordinary, but is compact and easy to use. Those wanting to progress should look elsewhere, though
