This must easily be the worst P&S I have ever owned. Images are noisy even at low ISO - cannot make even decent (not great) 6*4 prints at ISO above 200. The only thing going for it is it's pocket size and reasonable build quality.

I've had this camera for roughly a month and a half. I've just come back from a trip to Vegas, where I had the chance to give it a really good test in many different lighting conditions. The camera is well built, with it's metal body. The features are decent, it is easy to use. The picture quality is a huge disappointment. I have a good balanced understanding of what to expect from a camera like this having owned several point and shoot digitals, including an old Pentax Optio 330. On a ...

A little fast camera with good battery without much professional features, good for a street use (better use with tripod).

Disadvantages: -Green mode usually gives poor ...

Movie size limited only to available space on your SD card. ...

I have just gotten the pentax optio m30 while shopping for a camera last friday. Had some hands on with various cameras and eventually settled on this. What I really like, the brushed metal construction is real sweet and classy. Highest ISO3200 is amazing too. I was torn between Nikon P5000 and Pentax Optio M30, but a test shot swerved me towards pentax. Nikon's though was 10mp, image quality didnt better that of pentax and the lens of pentax optio m30 was glass instead of plastic and with ...
