Pentax Optio S6 review
Feb 13, 2006

I bought the camera because I own a Pentax Optio S (3.2 mp). The 3.2 has a very small LED--so small you cannot make out details. So when I saw the screen size of the S6 I was delighted. The controls are larger and easier to use, and it seems to ramp up much more quickly.

Problems:

The key problem with this camera is that the viewing screen. Although large, it totally fades out in moderately bright light. I took the camera on 2 trips to Whistler and was unable to use it because I could not see the image. The 3.2 has a range/view finder; the S6 does not.

I am returning the camera to Costco because of the fatal flaw.
