Pentax Optio 430 review
Solid but heavy body. As heavy as Canon IXUS v. Strong stainless steel body that can resist most impact. I usually crashed it with the table and there is no sign of scratch. Soft case is not included coz it won't get worn!
User friendly. One whose a newbie can use it after 2 sec.
Good pictures/video at night shot with low noises. However if sound is included will be much much better. Amazingly you can ZOOM when recording video.
A bit noisy while zooming. I was discovered when I tried to take photo during class.
Good to remember most settings after switching off/on.
I brought it at Hong Kong at HKD$4180 /w 128MB CF.
Battery goes out soon. I can use it around 2 hours, after full charge. I'm going to buy one spare battery coz I would use it traveling aboard and expect it can function for one day. HOT camera. You can feel the heat where the battery located after using 5 minutes.
