Pentax Optio 550 review

Overall very nice small but powerful camera.Great outdoor pictures quality.
Very easy to use outside. Have to learn to do good indoor photos. Very sensitive to the object surface reflection coefficient when defines flash power, so I learnet to use
exposure compensation to balance that.
Have to carry small flashlight to help focusing in low luminocity conditions.Have to be patient between the shots waiting for image transfers to SD card.


- next to impossible to focus when it is dark (focus light is needed)
- Cant't use external flash
- Long wait between the shots
- high noise level
