Pentax Optio SV review
Mar 10, 2006

Alltogether a deception - compared to the other similar cameras by pentax.
Very small but nevertheless great 5x zoom. Large display compared to Optio 550/555/450

Problems:

- display reflects sunlight, thus very hard to see
- viewfinder as bad as for any of these small cameras
- not comfortable to hold (too small ;-))
- autofocus slow and not precise
- poor image quality
- settings not as comfortable as with the optio 550 - especially in manual mode (mode Dial doesn't even have separate items for all of P, S, A and M)

The Optio 550 I had before was *much* better when it comes to autofocus precision and image quality.
