Pentax Optio E20 review

I was very disappointed with this camera. It appears to be an update of the E10 which has received poor reviews.


Picture noise for interior shots is high, except in the most brightly lit areas within 2 feet of the flash. Colour accuracy is poor, especially indoors but even outdoors the camera made noticeable colour errors in some shots. The shutter response is uncomfortably slow for indoor shots. Frequently the camera refused to take a photo at all, probably having focus troubles. The camera's best performance under bright exterior conditions was still disappointing. It is difficult to work out which way around the batteries go - a criticism that was levelled at the E10 but not fixed.
