Pentax Optio S40 review
Dec 1, 2005

Good camera, got it on a discontinued sale.
Very impressed with the compact size, solid construction and practical features.
Mode dial is quick and easy to access many commonly used presets, as well as 4 programmable modes, which save your favourite settings, i.e., flash off, high quality, shutter priority.
Sound recording (6 hours on 1 Gb card)
Movie recording (30 minutes on 1 Gb card)
Stitch mode works in both horizontal and vertical position, enabling very wide angle shots.

Problems:

LCD screen is too small, otherwise a great camera.
Too bad they don't make it anymore.
The new models don't have the viewfinder, which is a good thing to have if the batteries are low.
