Pentax Optio S5n review
Apr 5, 2005

Very good camera. It is very small and light, and what is best quite cheap if you compare it with other cameras.
For example in EU countryes it is only 260 EUR and most other cameras are quite more expencive.
I tested its mpeg4 mode and am very happy with it.
The quality is very good on TV, it is maybe just a bit worse than in sd400 but you can have 4 times more taken in SD card with mpeg4 mode. And it is still very good for such a small camera.
You can zoom optical before shooting video, and also digital while shooting.
Also flash is very good for such small camera, I took some photos of my sister 4 m from me and the picture was very nice.
IT also has a live histogram displaying so that you can see all details before taking picture while most others has only histogram displaying after you take photo and there is nothing much you can do then.
It has a PF pan focus good for moving object.
It has an AF asist lamp.

Problems:

None so far
