Small and huge

vitorugo, Ebay

  • 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.

Pentax Optio S12 Digital Camera

VasilLevski, Rate it all!
17 September 2008
  • Summary: I would like to say that this is the best camera that I have ever had. Excellent quality of the pictures, simple menu, too many options, small size and so on. I had a Sony Cybershot and I was extremly disappointed from them. So bad camera, bad quality of the pictures,problem with the batteries and so on... Highly recommend Pentax brand and especially this camera!!!

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.

Pentax Optio S12 Digital Camera

ellafan, Rate it all!
12 July 2008
  • Summary: First off: I am hardly a professional photographer,but I have been taking pictures for 45 years. So my review will not be full of technical stuff. I gave up film cameras quite a while ago.My first digicam was a whopping 1.3mps,which I thought was astounding.I gradually progressed up to the point where I have this little gem,all 12MP's of it. I am using it as a replacement for a small,but hard-working Nikon P&S.Not a replacement,more of an addition..

Picture this

  • 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 this camera.
  • Pros: The weight of the camera and optical zoom
  • Cons: The blurred images which appear

It is amazing !!!!!!

Stephen A. Simpson, Amazon
10 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought one of these from alpha stores gibraltar and have never been so happy with a camera! It was fast, it had brilliant focusing and pixels, the build quality is stunning and is way better than you think it will be plus it is a real bargain which in a way doesnot justify the pure hand made perfection of this beauty of a camera. If i could i would buy another one. i recommend this amazing bit of kit to every one.

Cute Little Snapper - Not a Night Bird

The Vicar, Amazon
8 July 2009
  • Summary: Bought to replace my Cannon IXUS 40 that developed the usual "E18" 'jammed zoom problem' common to that breed. The Optio S12 is tiny and light - even feels a bit too delicate/cheap, but...It's oozing with features and the daylight pictures are crisp and rich in colour. My only gripe is that (as other reviewers have mentioned) it doesn't like to take decent pictures in low ambient light conditions, especially outdoors, where the flash is not up to the job of illuminating...

not that good

A. Subido "mrsbudget", Amazon
23 June 2009
  • Summary: yes, i must say, after reading loads of reviews, Ithought i got a bargain but definitely not a very good camera, unless am really doing something wrong. When it is indoor, most of the time even with the automatic flash, it is too dark and the focusing and delay is really annoying,,I feel embarrassed using it.
