  • Summary: Pentax moved the M-Series "upscale" with the totally redesigned Optio M30. It is a sleek, slender and very elegant camera that is certain to attract attention. Its 7.1 megapixel resolution is plenty good enough even for massive enlargements or cropping. The camera is quick and simple to use, with the exception of some menus that are a bit confusing. The M30 offers an awful lot for the money, but Pentax did have to leave out some features to make that low price possible.
  • Pros: Sleek, slender, very elegant, handy 7.1-megapixel camera, Logically laid out and very simple to use, High ISO 3200 sensitivity available, Decent battery life
  • Cons: Some menus and functions are buried or not marked, No optical zoom in movie mode, Digital anti-blur only, 2.5-inch LCD has low 115k pixel resolution

  • Conclusion: La nuova PENTAX Optio M30 è, senz'altro, una delle migliori fotocamere digitali compatte, dotata di tecnologia avanzata ma con un prezzo concorrenziale. Le due innovazioni principali rispetto al modello precedente sono il riconoscimento facciale, per i ritratti, e lo stabilizzatore di immagine, per ridurre il rischio di foto mosse. Da notare anche lo spessore decisamente esiguo e il display di grandi dimensioni, anche se con una risoluzione non proprio elevata.
  • Pros: Sensore; Spessore; Riconoscimento facciale
  • Cons: Memoria interna; Risoluzione display

  • Conclusion: De Optio M30 is een ultraplatte, luxe metalen en eenvoudige camera met behoorlijke tot goede beeldvorming, maar met blauwzweem en wat ruis, die zonder uitvergroten al zichtbaar is. Hij is ook ultrasimpel te bedienen. Zijn prijs zal ongeveer op een gemiddelde 230 euro liggen. Vergeet niet daar nog een paar tientjes voor een flinke SD-geheugenkaart bij op te tellen.
  • Pros: ultraplat, chique, metalen behuizing
  • Cons: blauwzweem, ruis, filteronscherpte
