Pentax Optio Z10 review
Handling: Great menus (even more ergonomic than Casio) and access to camera settings (excluding T/A/M priotity) considering a small number of control buttons.
AUTO ISO range can be set. Genious widephoto-mode, triggered by zoom lever. Missing a _functional_ shake reduction system, video stabilisation is good, zooming and taking photo during video is a great feature.
IQ: Compared to Casio V7, much better sharpness at 7x zoom, although it seems the optics are the same. Color reproduction/WB is colder than Canon's, but can be tweaked. Much manual post- and pre-processing options in menus.
Battery: only ca. 100 images shot without flash.
Ergonomy: Very small and slippery. Good for pocket, bad for longtime use/still holding.
