Pentax Optio S10 review

 

The S10 is only a few millimetres smaller than most compact cameras but it looks tiny, as it's barely taller than its 2in screen.

Pentax Optio S10 10Mp compact camera

 

Pentax's Optio range of cameras just keeps getting better and better. The Pentax Optio M40 was impressive, but its latest offering, the Pentax Optio S10, is pure genius.

This fantastic point-and-click camera has all the looks and functionality of much more expensive models, whilst retaining the ease of use that we have come to expect from entry-level cameras. The Pentax Optio S10 is perfect for everyone, mainly due to...

Pentax Optio S10

 

What happens when you fit a large sensor into a small metal body with a 3x optical zoom, Auto focus and Auto exposure face priority? The Optio S10, that's what.

Good build quality; Decent lens; Good shutter response

Only 6cm macro

Pentax Optio S10

 

This pocket-sized Pentax camera is very easy to carry with you to all sorts of events and it'll do a good job when shooting scenery or people. It's a ...

Very compact size, sharp-looking shots, good colours

Some noticeable fringing, lens distortion, some noticeable noise, can't manually change the aperture and shutter settings

It's small, can take good looking 10-megapixel-sized images and it's easy to use. It'll struggle a little in low-light conditions, as most cameras do, but it's still a decent compact camera for all occasions.

Pentax Optio S10 review

 

With the no-frills Optio S10, Pentax bucks the trend of loading up point-and-shoot cameras with neat-sounding but dubiously useful features--OK, so I'm not a big face-detection fan--and sticking true to its photographic roots by including some very...

Excellent photo quality for the price; generally fast performance; no frills but well-chosen snapshot feature set.

USB port and charger connector under battery cover; limited focal range for macro shooting.

A surprisingly nice budget ultracompact, the no-frills Pentax Optio S10 delivers excellent photo quality and decent performance for relatively little cash.
