Superb well made and small enough to fit in your pocket or handbag, yet big enough to be able to use all of the controls no matter what size your hands. This is without doubt the jem of the Pentax Optio range. More pixels than the 230 and the same as the more expensive 330RS. I have used digital cameras for several years, but even straight out of the box my teenage children were doing flash things with the camera in minutes. Great images at all levels, fast smooth zoom lens, minimum ...

This camera rivals the Canon S230. Though not as small as the more popular Canon S230, the Pentax 330GS holds its own, and can just as easily fit discretely in my pocket. If you like shooting from the hip, taking stealth candids on the subway, and/or don't want to lug around a heavy camera, this camera is perfect. Also, the 330GS has a more impressive zoom at 3x (compared with the S230's 2x zoom). As well, at the time of writing, the 330GS costs less than the Canon by more than $100 CAD! ...

A very good camera and it is super light and not too fat either. Produces very sharp pictures. The only problem that i personally have is that you can't really control the shutter speed, but if you could i haven't figured it out yet :P with all the features you get, this is great for the value of your money! Did lots of research on cameras before actually deciding. Do consider this as your choice!

A great little camera! Though it's compact and fits in my purse or pocket incognito, it's packed with features. More than I normally use. What drew me to get this camera was that it is automatic and simple enough for me (and others) to use, yet also allows for settings to be controlled. The camera boasts 3.2 megapixels and it delivers. I've printed 8 x 10 pictures and the detail is superb. The images are sharp and the colors are very accurate. I haven't used the 3D image setting but I've ...

This is a superb, easy to use, point and shoot ultra compact device which delivers quick, easy results for even the novice photographer - me! Recommended. Only criticism is the pathetic 16MB CF card included in the retail package. With a 3.3MP camera, this doesn't amount to many pictures. Also, a case would have been nice. Problems: None so far.

Not had it long, handles well, takes good clear images with excellent colours. Very easy to use, excellent family camera and very fast operation. Once used at top quallity you never want to go lower but makes for large files...

This is a fantastic camera. I conducted mass research before purchasing and this camera was one of my top 3. I purchased this camera a week ago at a fantastic price and have been so happy with it. I coundn't pass up on the deal. The images so far look great at any size and I have played with all the settings to prove it. Problems: If you don't like smaller sizes, you may not like this one. However, if you prefer smaller as a matter of convienance than this one is perfect for you.
