Pentax Optio S7

 

Good image quality with brightly lit subjects.Sharp and large LCD screen.Well-finished body.Green button, when assigned to functions, is a good improvement to the design.

Some noise at all ISO settings.Compression too strong at the highest image quality setting.Blur Reduction mode not comparable to an optically stabilized lens.Flash a bit underpowered.

Pentax Optio S7

 

Pocket sized and inexpensive is how I would describe the Pentax Optio S7. Therefore if a pocket sized camera is a must and your budget is tight then it is worth taking a look at this camera.

Ease of use ; Low cost pocket sized digital camera

Pictures can be on the dark side Shutter lag

"The Pentax Optio S7 is one of the cheapest pocket sized, seven megapixel digital cameras you will find. I did experience a degree of inconsistency with picture quality and shutter lag was a major problem too."
