Pentax Optio S review

I bought this camera to have a small ready-to-shoot camera in my
pocket all the time and, boy, this fits the bill. It takes great snapsots
although it is only fair for higher quality images, but you can't beat the
size, portability and ease of use. For me, the main barrier to taking
good photos has been whether or not I carry my camera with me . . .
and this has solved that problem - i ALWAYS have the camera with me.
I have found that selecting an enhanced sharpness and color saturation
setting makes a huge difference and turns out great photos.


I had one problem, where the lens failed to retract properly, and it was
repaired promptly under warranty.
