Elegant 10 megapixel ultra-compact impresses with useful technology improvements

30 November 2011
  • Summary: Only a short while ago, the mere thought of an affordable 10 megapixel camera was inconceivable, and certainly not one as compact, sleek, and easy-to-use as the Pentax Optio A30. Sure, there are a few quirks in the menus, but regular users of this camera will quickly get the hang of it, and then enjoy the resolution, the high-res LCD, autofocus illumination, the many modes, the intelligent zoom, the superb LCD, and the very effective shake reduction modes.
  • Pros: Elegant, handy 10-megapixel camera, High quality "Intelligent" zoom, Logically laid out and very simple to use, Bright, high-res, wide viewing angle 2.5-inch LCD, Manual modes available, Effective shake reduction modes, Helpful "Green Mode" button
  • Cons: Some menus and functions are buried or not marked, No optical zoom in movie mode, Mediocre battery life, Confusing use of shake reduction modes, Confusing implementation of "Green Mode" button

  • Excerpt: When Pentax introduced the Optio A20 in August 2006, they called it the “flagship of the Optio digital camera line”. Don’t look now, mates, but the admiral has just transferred his flag.

  • Excerpt: 25.03.2008 07:28 Uhr | 18° | 0 Mit der Optio A30 deklassiert Pentax die gesamte Kompaktkamera-Konkurrenz. Leider ist auch sie nicht ganz fehlerfrei, wie wir im Test feststellten.
