Pentax Optio S12

PC Magazine
5 December 2008
  • Conclusion: The Pentax Optio S12 delivers solid still images and top-notch DivX video.
  • Pros: Compact. Terrific picture quality. Offers a variety of onboard editing options. Able to record in DivX format for high-quality video in a small file size.
  • Cons: Looks and feels flimsy. No option for 16:9 still-image shooting. Video playback on a PC or Mac requires installation of (a free) DivX codec. Menu system could be streamlined.

Pentax Optio S12

CNET

  • Summary: The smart Pentax Optio S12 looks and feels as classy and assured as any of the Pentax S series from recent years. The venerable chassis, though, doesn't really suit such a high-resolution sensor -- the previous 10-megapixel S10 gives just as much usable detail and will save you a good £50
  • Pros: Small but solid; effortless menus and buttons; natural pictures.
  • Cons: Minor build issues; erratic focus; soft on detail.

  • Summary: Good picture quality and a very small size make the Optio S12 a great camera for parties, day trips or travelling overseas. It's well-worth considering.
  • Pros: 130 grams, relatively crisp and clear photos, good colours
  • Cons: Noticeable lens distortion, some fringing in high-contrast areas

Pentax Optio S12

  • Conclusion: Для тех, кто считает, что 12-мегапиксельная матрица в компакте ни к чему, мы припасли пару-тройку фотографий в нашей галерее тестовых снимков. Обратите внимание, какой уровень детализации обеспечивает камера при низких значениях ISO.
  • Pros: высокая детализация снимков при низких значениях ISO;, компактность;, простота управления.
  • Cons: отсутствие ручных режимов съемки;, заметное снижение детализации при повышении ISO.
