Pentax Optio S50 review

Very dissapointing result here. The average output from this camera is well below par. It's auto-focus is hit-and-miss and the auto exposure unreliable. In a side by side comparison with a Nikon coolpix 4200 it's results are dismal.

The better pictures remain wooly and desaturated, lacking sparkle and clarity especially when compared directly with the Nikon. Both in full auto mode and when attempting to use Zones/Picture-type settings.

I am attempting to get my money back.


All functions present but picture output very poor.
