Pentax Optio i-10 review

What Digital Camera
30 June 2010
  • Summary: The Pentax Optio I-10 looks great from the outside as its retro design looks fresh and new, different in a class where most competitors' compacts all appear the same. However, the overall experience is let down by the final image quality which, above ISO 200, suffers from excess noise reduction that significantly softens images and ‘mutes' colours.

Pentax Optio E90, H90 and I-10 Hands-On

25 January 2010
  • Excerpt: The most interesting of the new cameras was the Optio I-10 , which has a rather retro look to it as a throwback to Pentax SLRs of yesteryear. Interestingly, Pentax went with a 16:9 display ratio on the I-10, which translates well for video recording; however, you lose screen real estate for still images.

  • Conclusion: I can't recommend the Pentax Optio i-10 owing to the issues I had with picture quality. That's a shame as it is always good to see something a little different.
  • Pros: Ease of use - Retro Design

  • Excerpt: It's difficult purely from photographs to get an accurate impression of just how small the new Optio I-10 from Pentax actually is. It does, in fact, deliver the sort of truly compact form factor that Micro Four Thirds cameras should have done - and insinuated from their own early press photographs. It sports a classic design that benefits from a Leica-like attention to detail and looks amazing because of it.

First Look: Pentax Optio I-10 digital camera review

Pocket Lint
2 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The Pentax I-10 looks to offer you the usual Pentax compact camera capabilities in a rather eye-catching retro design. People we showed it too thought that it looked "cute" and rather "fun", however we also got questions as to whether it was a DSLR (due the styling) and if it was more powerful than a regular compact.
  • Pros: Big widescreen display, design, 24 scene modes, Auto button
  • Cons: Widescreen only maximised at 9MP, retro look might mean capabilities are confused with Panasonic or Olympus Micro Four Thirds models
