Pentax Optio S6 review

I used this camera extensively for a week. This was my 9th digital camera … which I bought mainly for it’s small size. I wound up returning it because of poor image quality. Although it was a no brainer to use … the auto focus just didn’t cut it IMO. Unless the focus was dead on, the pictures were horrible. Even the best photos were nowhere near as sharp as my Nikon’s or Canon’s. I was kind of disappointed because I really wanted to like this camera. I kept looking here and elsewhere for full blown reviews before I pulled the trigger, but I finally got tired of waiting and grabbed it at Costco when I saw it there. Just as well that it was returned … because I would have been pretty annoyed now that Pentax has announced new models anyway.


Poor quality pictures.
