Pentax Optio A40 Digital Camera

  • Summary: I've had the camera for about 3 months now, and overall it's been great. I particularly love the 'double flower' mode that gets me to the short hair. I take some pictures of small machinery, like phone parts, and electronic gadgets, and the double flower mode gets me in there just fine. On the down side, i find that occasionally, the focus seems to be just bad. I think i am not giving it enuf time to think, but even when i give it time, it just blows the focus entirely.

  • Summary: I was looking for a small camera with a lot of features. What I like: 12 MP, 3 systems of shake reduction, High Dynamic Range, manual focus in almost all modes (you can record a movie in macro, super macro, manual focus, excellent!), ISO range (you can decide a maximun auto ISO), document photos are very clear (I like negative mode to take pictures of my 35mm negatives films), fast focus mode, big movies with a small size.

  • Summary: This is a great camera, it has a quick startup (not counting charging the flash) and it does everything a point and shoot should. --> Make sure you use one of the high speed sandisk cards Also, the directions say the charger lights green and goes out when charged, in reality, it lights red when charging and turns green when done.

  • Summary: This is all in all an excellent little camera, I bought one three years ago with my birthday money, it was my first real camera and I love it, it takes nice pictures, and I started my career as a YouTuber with it, it is easy to use, and it feels well made. However it is incapable of doing HD video which is a drawback when people demand that you make videos HD.
  • Pros: Nearly everything, good quality pictures, ok video, it works well
  • Cons: Too fragile, can't do HD

  • Summary: Para ser una compacta el resultado me parece excelente. La óptica de las fotos parecen haber sido tomadas con una reflex si sabes algo de fotografía.

Kleines Wunder

englaender1, Ciao
3 January 2009
  • Excerpt: . Die erste Überraschung offenbarte sich bereits beim Auspacken: die Kamera benötigt die selben Akkus wie meine bisherige defekte Fuji F810. Also Ersatzakku-Kauf gespart. Meine vorhandene 8GB-SDHC-Karte wurde anstandslos erkannt. Eine komplette Bedienungsanleitung im handlichen A6-Format rundete die Überraschungen ab. Die A40 ist sehr klein und handlich und greift sich dabei relativ gut an.
  • Pros: Unheimlich vielseitig
  • Cons: Zu viele Megapixel, daher schlechtere Bildqualität
