Pentax Optio 330RS review

My first digital camera, so can't really compare with others. I was deciding between Canon A70, Olympus 300, Nikon 3100 and Optio 330 RS which are in the same price range. Decided on this tiny little camera due to the following:-
- Solid build with stainless steel case
- Ultra compact size to carry any where and every where
- Enough features to grow with especially the manual features
- Rechargeable battery
- 3x optical zoom
- F2.6 lense
- User friendly

The camera takes nice and sharp pictures if it's taken properly i.e. proper focused and exposure setting. It's not really a P&S camera and requires a bit of basic photography skills in order to take nice pictures. That's the reason it's a fun camera.


Auto focus is a bit slow comparing with its competitors.

LCD is not as sharp as others.
