Pentax Optio Z10 review

I bought this camera to be a pocket-carried model that could produce high quality photos using the 7x magnification. The anti shake feature is a post processing function that must be performed on each photo individually. There is no viewfinder so when using the camera in bright sunlight, it is almost impossible to accurately frame a photo. The adaptive focus often selects a feature other than than the main point of interest in the picture. Lost of noise in ISOs over 200.

This camera is going back to Costco soon.


1. Problems focusing on the main subject.
2. No viewfinder - difficult to use in bright sunlight.
3. Lots of noise at ISOs over 200 - virtually unusable over 400 ISO.
