  • Summary: I bought the optio s12 two months ago, before I had s6 and s10, and always I'm impressed with its versality, power, quality on this small and inexpensive digital cam, very important to me its wireless remote control, no available in others cam. I'd recommend the optio s12 if you need a digital cam.

Variable image quality depending on the assembly

higher, Ebay
17 July 2008
  • Summary: +The camera is very compact and light in weight. We believe it is one of the smallest 12MP camera money can buy for the moment. You can carry it without noticing it. +The battery level indicator. +The battery lasts a long time. In situations where we shot over 100 photos the battery still shows 2 bars. -Can really use mechanical SR. -Pictures can be very blurry depending on the quality of assembly. QC is very poor at pentax.

  • Excerpt: "This review is for the Pentax Optio S12 digital camera. Setup ----------- Setup is extremely easy for this camera; you first have to make sure you put in the batteries they include which are just cheap everyday value batteries inside the camera. You then have to make sure you have got the disc loaded onto the computer; the reason for this is because without the software loaded on it becomes really difficult to alter the pictures you take using ...
  • Pros: The weight of the camera and optical zoom
  • Cons: The blurred images which appear

This is a great everyday camera- I'd definitely recommend it

  • Excerpt: "I have had this camera for almost a year now and i am really happy with it. Its a great, everyday camera and the picture quality is amazing. The different modes available are excellent and i particularly like the "flowers" mode as the colour intensity is really excellent. With 12 megapixels, i have been able to blow the image onto an A4 sheet of photo paper and print it out at home without any loss of quality. Also, the look of this camera is really ...
  • Pros: Great value for money, attractive to look at, and most importantly excellent quality pictures !
  • Cons: Doesnt have a snow mode as many other cameras do, but still takes excellent pictures in the snow !

small and powerful

fardley, Ciao
13 January 2009
  • Excerpt: "My first impressin on this camera is on how small it was. 54x87x21mm and weighing only 110g. It has a very effective 12 megapixels which makes the pictures very detailed. The camera features many modes such as, face detection, beauty shot, landscape, portrait etc. However the camera does lack anti shake. Which means taking photos of far away objects can be challenging. The camera does have an SDHC memory slot (SDHC is SD with a high capacity 2gb+) ...
  • Pros: 12 megapixels, big 2 . 5" screen, fast usage, easy and simple menu
  • Cons: no optical view finder, no shake reduction and poorer quality photos in dim light

Kompaktkamera für viel Bild und wenig Geld.

MaikU2, Ciao
12 May 2011
  • Summary: Eine schon etwas ältere Kompaktkamera von der Marke Pentax. Die Optio S12 bietet für mittlerweile nur noch ca. 150€ sehr gute Bildqualität. Ich habe die Pentax Optio S12 jetzt schon seit gut 2 Jahren und war nie von ihr enttäuscht. Die Kamera hat so gut wie jede Foto- Situation gut gemeistert, ob es "einfache" Landschaftsaufnahmen waren, oder doch eher Konzert Fotografie (also viel Gegenlicht, dann wieder dunkel...).
  • Pros: Qualitativ hochwertige Fotos, Gewicht, Preis, Benutzerfreundlichkeit
  • Cons: wenig Einstellungsmöglichkeiten

  • Pros: leggera, scatti buoni di giorno
  • Cons: manca la custodia, pessimo flash

Test der Pentax Optio S 12

ukingu, eBay.de
11 October 2009
  • Summary: Die Bedienung und das Bedienungsmenue ist gut verständlich und einfach zu handhaben. Ohne zu Hilfenahme der Bedienungsanleitung ist man sehr schnell in der Lage die wesentlichen Menueelemente zu verstehen und auch richtig anzuwenden. Leider werden fast die Hälfte der Bilder unscharf, bedingt durch das langsame Autofocus.
