Pentax Optio M900

  • Summary: If you only have £100 or less to spend on a friendly beginner camera, the Pentax Optio M900 offers a fair return for a modest investment. But an outlay of just £50 more will get you a better camera in Nikon's similar S5100 -- and better pictures, too.
  • Pros: Compact, pocket-friendly dimensions;. Thin rubber coating enables firmer grip;. Easy to use for basic snapping;. Affordable.
  • Cons: Variable white balance giving rise to the occasional odd colour cast;. Modest feature set -- no HD movies;. Zoom action is noisy, so can't zoom in video mode.

  • Pros: Tactile rubber coated exterior, cheap price, easy to use, simple to navigate feature set
  • Cons: Basic feature set, no HD video, optical zoom disabled when recording movies, white balance issues and inconsistent performance, flash fires automatically in lower lighting
