Overall Not bad

giblets46, Ciao
24 March 2005
  • Excerpt: "Overall quite a good camera, with Compact flash, and high resolution giving good results. Found the camera really easy to use and get good results, and much better now the memory is a lot cheaper (was about £50 for 64MB now £15 for 256MB 03/2005). The camera does come with 11MB internal memory, which is unusable when you have a memory card in which is pretty stupid! Can take up to 512MB Compact flash cards. You can adjust the size of the ...
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Good Pics

Too much for your money?

  • Excerpt: "...I end up with a Pentax Optio 430RS and how well does it work? Although digital cameras have been around for several years they are only becoming available at prices that seem reasonable to the average consumer and can produce pics of a quality equal to the traditional methods. They are also more and more consumer friendly and less seen as gadgets for people with computers. In fact most cameras can be used successfully without a computer. Link to ...
  • Pros: A lot of punch from a little box of tricks
  • Cons: Maybe the box is too small?

Compact Digital Quality (Updated 23 Mar 05)

a4angus, Ciao
28 May 2003
  • Excerpt: "** Update - 23 Mar 2005 ** 2 years on and some developments (if you will excuse the inappropriate photography pun).... Quality of the unit is coming into doubt; the shutter mechanism is starting to play up and sometimes refuse to set the focus and exposure for shot. The result is the shot is not available and you have to try again. Whilst intermittent, this is frustrating as I can miss the picture I wanted. Image quality is excellent still ...

about my Pentax

foursprun..., Ciao
9 March 2003
  • Excerpt: "I bought the Pentax Optio 430RS because the guy in the camera shop used the 330RS, and you can get the 430RS for the same price online. Obviously the 430RS has more pixels (4 Meg), so you can expect a pretty good resolution. The user menu is really easy to operate compared to some I have looked at. I bought the digital camera because I wanted to have the choice of having only the good pictures instead of the usual 3 out of 36 type holiday ...
  • Pros: Compact, feels bombproof with steel body
  • Cons: takes a few seconds to start up

  • Excerpt: "This little guy's not cheap, but the quality and specification are all there, in a very neat package - it's the Kylie of digital cameras. My only concern is that some of the results are dodgy. Is this a result of my own incompetence, or is it a flawed product? I suspect that it's the former, and that with time and practice, I will get better results. You see it's not exactly a point-and-shoot affair. There are more modes and settings than you would ...
  • Pros: Compact, good - specification .
  • Cons: Takes time and practice to get good results .

mala experiencia

losqui, quesabesde.com
26 February 2007
  • Summary: Despues de dos años me he sorpredido cuando al utilizar el zom las fotos salian con exceso de luz practicamente veladas.El motivo se debe a que el circuito que regula la apertura y cierre de diafragma se ha cortado, quiza segun el tecnico porque el dispositivo de encendido de camara es antiguo.La reparacion vale 180 euros.

  • Conclusion: Batterilivslängd: 2 Bildkvalitet: 4 Hållbarhet: 5 Första digitalkameran, köpt aug 2002. Tagit ca 6000 bilder. Aldrig något krångel. Plåtkåporna är mycket stryktåliga. Alla reglage absolut glappfria. Batteri och CF-kort fungerar fortfarande oklanderligt.
  • Pros: Extremt stryktålig under brutala fjällvandringar och fisketurer.
  • Cons: Långsam i starten och i zoomen.
