  • 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

  • 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.
  • 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 !

  • 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.
  • 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
