Pentax Optio A40 Review

best4reviews.com
9 October 2008
  • Summary: The Pentax Optio A40 is a very good compact indeed. It’s just that when it’s in its fully automatic mode, it’s fussy and takes a lot of getting used to being very slow in certain situations, particularly in low light (that is that six second delay again).
  • Pros: Image quality, Comprehensive auto focus settings, Good portrait mode, Clever photo/movie editing options, Face and Tracking AF.
  • Cons: Poor performance in low light, High ISO image noise.

Digital Camera Review

  • Summary: In the last year, photography has really gained importance among my hobbies and interests. I absolutely love taking pictures. There’s just one problem: it can be really difficult to carry a camera, especially if it’s a DSLR, at all times.

  • Conclusion: Фотокамера в скромном черном корпусе с неброским дизайном показала неплохие результаты во время нашего тестирования. Если смириться с потерей детализации, снимать на A40 можно почти во всем диапазоне светочувствительности, как минимум до ISO 800.
  • Pros: относительно низкий уровень шума на всем диапазоне ISO;, высокая детализация изображения при низких значениях ISO;, наличие ручных режимов съемки;, эффективная функция расширения динамического диапазона.
  • Cons: снижение детализации при повышении чувствительности;, малоэффективный стабилизатор изображения.
