Summary: The P70 has some good points; it looks great, has good build quality, is easy to use, and the zoom range is ideal for snapshots. Overall image quality is also good, but the slow performance is a serious handicap.
Conclusion: Not every digital camera can be fantastic. I was left with a feeling that the Pentax Optio P70 is not really cheap enough to overcome some of the problems I found. The problems may not always be that big, but I feel there is better value for money to be had elsewhere.
Pros: Ease of use
Cons: Macro shots are distant - noise creeps in from time to time - shutter delay times
Excerpt: The Pentax Optio P70 is a well-made, very compact digital camera, with a glossy white aluminium body (other colours available) and good overall finish. It's easily small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, measuring just 97(W) x 54(H) x21.5(D) mm.
Excerpt: The P70 might be the second-cheapest camera on test, but it surprised us in two ways. First, it's extremely good looking - better looking, arguably, than some of the more expensive cameras here, with its shiny white finish and 2.2cm depth hiding its budget positioning well.
Conclusion: The Pentax Optio P70 has some fantastic selling points but sadly they have become overshadowed by its two major flaws. The P70 is a slow camera producing plenty of noise in lowlight conditions.
Summary: Kamerorna har testats i olika miljöer och ett stort antal bilder (200-300 stycken) har tagits med varje kamera och med varierande inställningar. Vi har bedömt design (ergonomi), bildkvalitet, funktioner, kapacitet samt prisvärde.
