Pentax Optio M30 review
May 19, 2007

A little fast camera with good battery without much professional features, good for a street use (better use with tripod). ISO 64,100,200 gives me enough good quality, but I found the noise even at ISO 64 mode. M30 also may be good for taking shots of animals from distance farther than 1,4 meters.
Advantages:
-The Green mode allows me to fastly switch between video or audio modes and shooting mode.
-Continous (series) mode shooting is very fast.
Disadvantages:
-Green mode usually gives poor quality in a room.
-Too noisy picture on the LCD while focusing...
-Too big aureole on contrast edges (light text on black background and eroded black text on white background)
-ISO greater than 200 gives awful photos.
-USB 2.0 not supported - use card-reader, save battery.

Problems:

None yet.
