One of the best digital cameras that I have used for ease of use, quality and size. Features are well integrated into the camera and picture quality has always been good and without compromise. Camera is well constructed, however, battery life is a little on the low side.

My first digital camera, so can't really compare with others. I was deciding between Canon A70, Olympus 300, Nikon 3100 and Optio 330 RS which are in the same price range. Decided on this tiny little camera due to the following:- - Solid build with stainless steel case - Ultra compact size to carry any where and every where - Enough features to grow with especially the manual features - Rechargeable battery - 3x optical zoom - F2.6 lense - User friendly The camera takes nice and sharp ...

In short: DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA As you may argue from the title of this message, I am a very unlucky and disappointed customer of a Pentax Optio 330 RS. I will first provide a technical discussion about image quality and camera usage, then I will tell you my story. You may want to read it, just to avoid to have the same troubles I had. <h2>Technical notes</h2> This was my first digital camera -- for that reason I can not provide you with comparisons with other cameras. <br>The image quality ...

What a wonderful Camera! Not only does it come with a rechargable battery, but it has a lovely metal case, 11mb internal memory AND a sixteen megabye compact flash card. It's definatly a great buy, especially in my city (for $550). I bought mine from London Drugs in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada) and the service there was wonderful, they actually knew what they were talking about, which is something that's hard to come by these days when it comes to digital cameras. I have had wonderful ...

Decent little camera in some areas. Bought it as a back-up easy-carry alternative to a larger prosumer digital or SLR... now regretting it a bit... read more... PROs: + ease of use + size + weight + construction + colour values are very good The 330RS' strengths are it's construction (stainless steel body), compact size, and ease of use. I spent about 20 minutes with the manual and another 30 minutes of actual hands-on use and I had mastered almost every aspect and feature of the camera. Two ...

Great little camera. Compared it with friend's IXUS V (2,1 MP though), and it's real competitor IXUS V3. Optio's pics quality, ease of use (going through menus is a breeze), 3X zoom ...etc, really beats any IXUS by far. Worth mentioning that what I paid for my OPTIO 330RS (approx. 500 Euros) is in my country - Bosnia and Herzegovina (Sarajevo) about 20% less that the current price of IXUS V3 (approx 600 Euros). Also, OPTIO's manual controls (most of it) are giving me much more freedom than ...

This is an excelent camera for the money. Like many others who have posted a review of this camera, I had the intention of getting a Canon digital elph and was talked into the 330RS by a store sales clerk. (It did help that the store was sold out of the canons at the time). I was attracted to this camera by its' manual mode and three times zoom. My main complaint is the slow and picky auto focus proformance. The slow proformance means that taking action shots is very hard. (ie any thing where ...

I was looking for a digital camera that was small enough to have with me averywhere I go. I was looking at the Sony cybershot low-mid end cameras, but when I saw the Optio camera at the store I decided to get it instead. The reasons why I chose Optio, was the size and the manual functions. I like the manual function a lot since it gives me flexibility. I have taken pictures in meny diferent light situation, and most of the pictures come out quite nice. I have noted, as other reviewers, that ...

I bought this camera because of 'How good' the sales man claims to be. Intially I had already decided on a canon Ixus. Anyway, the camera doesn't really turns out to be what i expect. Tyring to sell it off and waiting to get a canon ixus Advantages: Sleek, solid construction, small Problems: 1. Focus problem 2. no sound for the mpeg recording + 30 Secs recording ONLY 3. heavy noise when u snap to take pics 4. battery runs out fast.
