Pentax Optio S5i review

I am very happy with this little camera. It is customizable, I have it set up to let me influence EV and WB at a touch, also a custom mode for saving favourite settings.

Picture quality is more than acceptable for a camera small enough to slip in your shirt pocket.

It has the beautiful textured body, which puts the looks of the S7 to shame (mine is Indigo Blue, just lovely). Also a lot of fun to use

For me it comes Highly Recommended as it is well fit for purpose.


Shot to shot is a little slow, which doesn't bother me at all
