Pentax Optio WP review
I have a 20D and a G5. Compared to those beasts, the image quality is very poor. at iso 400, the noise is the worst ive seen outside of the camera on a phone. At iso 100 its like iso 400 on the 20D. Only at iso 50 is the noise and sharpness acceptable, but then you need a lot of light.
I did like the "green button". you can assign this to 4 functions. I assigned 1.Ev comp, 2.ISO level. 3.Focus area.
The user interface is quite good - you dont need a manual.
There are no manual controls for Av or Tv, but on a camer this size and cost its not a huge loss.
The camera cost 150 pounds from scan.co.uk
the startup time and shutter lag are very good.
none yet, but havent tried it underwater yet. The rubber seal looks very flimsy - I will be amazed if water does not get in.
Im going to take it kitesurfing this weekend hopefully. Ill post pics on www.simonhobbs.co.uk
