  • Summary: The Pentax Optio S1 is a small, stylish, compact camera that is the latest version of Pentax’s venerable Optio S series. It is apparently designed to compete with Canon’s ELPH and Nikon’s “S” series of small cameras.
  • Pros: Attractive styling, Solid build quality, Interesting art filters
  • Cons: Some overexposure, No optical zoom in video, Images soft at corners

  • Excerpt: The Pentax Optio S1 is available in four different colours - pastel blue, red, black or silver. With a functional button arrangement at the rear your thumb is never far from where it needs to be, and this helps when navigating the menu system.

Pentax Optio S1

Pocket Lint
10 June 2011
  • Conclusion: There’s not much to the Pentax Optio S1; it’s your average, easy to use “auto everything” £100 pocket snapper disguised as the chrome domed Silver Surfer. Ironically, this flash exterior led us to unwisely hope for a much better performance when it came to still images and video than the S1...
  • Pros: Attractively mirrored chrome-finished aluminium alloy body, solid feel build, inexpensive, relatively easy to use, a couple of fun effects filters
  • Cons: Images overall are ropey, optical zoom inaccessible when recording video
