Pentax Optio S1 Review

13 October 2011
  • Conclusion: People need inexpensive and adequate digital cameras, and Pentax produced the Optio S1 to meet that need. There’s nothing revolutionary or mind blowing about its technology, but it is easy to use and takes decent to above-average photos, if you’re willing to learn a little and use manual settings where you can.
  • Pros: Simple, clean design, Easy to use, Built-in editor, filters are great for entry-level shooters
  • Cons: Noisy above ISO 800, Poor low-light performance
