Pentax Optio A40 review

A fine ultacompact camera in all respects. The people at Pentax know well what they are doing and satisfy the real needs of the amateur and the experienced photographer.
All the features of this camera certainly have a goal and the image quality, the sharpness and the colours produced are suberb, even at full resolution. I use it mostly on 7 MPixels , 50 ISO and its image and pixel quality is absolutely comparable to my DSLRs.


the battery compartement is too easily opened
only two lens appertures are available: fully open and f8 (f10 on tele) but there is nothing to complain , f8 does very very well.
