Pentax Optio 555 review

Despite what other seem to be saying, I don't think the camera is terribly
ugly--at least I have definitely seen uglier. Anway, I bought this camera about
a month ago and I am very happy with it. Although I wish it were a little
smaller, perhaps closer in size to the canon s500 or sony p100, the 5X zoom
definitely makes up for it. The pictures I have taken in Macro are unbeatable
compared with my friends cameras in the same class. The potential for
creative photography and manual control is also wonderful. My only
complaint is that the colors are not as vibrant as some other cameras in the
same class. However, with manual adjustment etc. this can be fixed. I
recommend this camera to anyone who wants a smallish camera that has more
zoom power and creative potential.
