Pentax Optio 430RS review

Some pictures are good, but the most of them are bad. The battery is good, the optical viewfinder is good, the macro (I used many times) is good, but there are a lot of problems which made me unhappy. Avoid Pentax, or this model!


Indoor, the pictures are blury, bad focused, almost always. I have to take 100 pictures for having 6 good. This is a very bad camera. Before I had a Canon 2 Mpix, which was very, very good. This is a very, very bad camera! I was, and I am very, very disapointed whith. Outdoor, the pictures are better, but they are not well focused. The main problems with this camera are: bad focus, bad light compensation, very, very noisy. I don't recomand to anyone to buy ever a Pentax, because Pentax made a huge compromise with this camera.
