I bought the camera after quite a bit of research on the web. Liked it for its small size and features. However, the photos are a bit disappointing in terms of sharpness even for 4"x6". The flash is quite weak, producing acceptable results only within 8 feet. I ended up exchanging it for the Canon S-30 which gives much better pictures (for the same price).

Pentax Optio 330RS has plenty of easy to use features all contained in a pocket sized piece of very robust hardware. The in-built 11Mb memory compliments the CF card capacity nicely to ensure that you are not surprised by a sudden storage problem. The image quality is ok for a 3.2mp device. The software loaded easiy onto both a Windows ME and NT PC's with connectivity and file transfer working directly out of the box. The feature set/physical size/build quality/price combination sold me on ...

I went into the store with intentions to buy a Canon S200 (I had borrowed one for a week and liked the small pocketable size and image quality) but got sidetracked into buying an Optio 330RS because it was the same size as the S200 with more features and a 3x zoom (versus the 2x zoom on the S200). I had the Optio for a day and took it back and bought the S200. The Optio image quality was just not on par with the S200, too much noise, etc. Problems: Image quality is poor, too much noise. ...

Really excited when first bought the unit. Well sold by the retail outlet I used. Whilst functions are easy to use and the size a great asset for a Novice "on the move" photographer, really disappointed with the image quality for such a well-recommended camera. Very rarely get consistent all round crispness on shots. If I had the chance again I would not buy it. Problems: Would welcome any advice or direction on how to get better results.
