Pentax Optio S60 review

The camera is handy to use with a clear and large display. I guess, the camera is easy to use and also delivers good images for its price.

There were however extreme artefacts when taking shots with bright background. They were clearly visible without zooming to a 100%.

The camera had problems to focus if light conditions were not extremely well. Probably normal as the camera has no Auto Focus light


The battery lasted only for 2 dozen of images with the flash which is limiting its use extremely and which was the primary reason for turning it in against the Canon A620 which is however also clearly more expensive and uses 4 instead of 2 AA Batteries.
