  • Excerpt: The Pentax Optio 555 ($550) is an updated version of the popular Optio 550 (see our review). Both cameras have a 5 Megapixel CCD, 5X optical zoom lens, and compact body. The differences between the new cameras are few. The 555 adds PictBridge support, improved performance, a larger range of shutter speeds, and a new flash exposure compensation option -- otherwise they're the same camera.
  • Pros: 5X zoom in a compact body, Very good photo quality, Impressive battery life for a compact camera, Full manual controls, Live histogram in record mode, Super macro mode allows you to get as close as 2 cm to subject, Cool digital color filter effects, Unique 3D photo, fast forward movie features, Can save favorite settings to spot on mode dial
  • Cons: Images slightly noisy, some vignetting, Redeye, Cheap plastic door over battery/memory card compartments, Skimpy 16MB SD card included, Average performance

  • Summary: Het toestel heeft heel wat mogelijkheden en dat merk je aan de prijs. Het is dus spijtig dat Pentax wat de kleurweergave betreft niet beter scoort. Buitenopnamen vertonen bij daglicht-preset een groene zweem. De automatische witbalans presteert beter maar niet perfect: de foto‚s zijn nu wat te roze. De kunstlichtopnamen zijn erg geel bij automatisch witbalans en wat blauw bij kunstlicht-preset. De foto’s zijn wel goed belicht en de scherpte is voldoende.

Röviden: Pentax Optio 555

  • Summary: Sokan vannak, akik nem elégednek meg az átlagos 3x-os optikai zoommal. Nekik túl sok választásuk nincs, ha a gép mérete is számít. Ha fontos, hogy kicsi legyen a gép, a Pentax Optio 555-ös kiváló választás, hiszen 5x-ös átfogású zoomoptikával, 5 millió képpontos felbontással rendelkezik.
