Pentax Optio 555 review

This is my third Digital Camera (RDC, Minolta F-100). The fact that the zoom
range is 5x is amazing. Picture noise is more noticable than the F100 at
400ISO setting but the 5megapixel CCD makes up for it. Battery life is
amazing. I considered a few cameras in the 4.0+ Megapixel range with
cosideration for the following needs: compactness, manual settings, image
quality, optical zoom range & price (under $700.00 Canadian). After
comparing shots taken from a few cameras, I chose the Optio. It's a versatile
and easy camera to operate with very good picture quality.

Problems:

Slighly saturated reds, manual shutter speed goes up to 1/1000th only (1/
2000th in auto)
