Pentax Optio S5n review

The pros :
1. Small size, very handy
2. Have remote controller
3. Some blurring at the corners. Optics not very good.
4. Movie mode quite good.
5. Cycle times reasonably good.


The cons :
1. Flash very weak and in auto mode always bumps to ISO200, yielding noisy pics.
2. Mis-focus shots are quite frequent even though it is quite fast.
3. Remote controller light always on and blinks brightly, irritating. Cannot be switched off.
4. Outdoor on a sunny day, always over exposure. I have to decrease EV.
5. No optical viewfinder.
6. Battery life short, just over 100 pics per charge.
7. Overall picture quality so-so only.
