Not Quite Picture Perfect (Sorry Bad Pun)

SuperFlor..., Ciao
10 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Lucky for me I recived this camera for free when my techno-phobe mother decided is was all too complex for her. Actually mastering the basic cameria functions is relatively striaght forward after a quick flick through the manual. It has multiple functions, such as landscape, portrait, night time, flash, zoom, video and sound recording to name a few. And people never seem to stop getting excited when you turn it on and the lens pops out on its own.
  • Pros: Sleek design and multiple functions, including video and sound recording .
  • Cons: Delayed reaction of several seconds prevents candid shots .

  • Excerpt: The Pentax Optio s30 is a brilliant camera, cramed pack full with useful features. To start of with, the size and finish of the camera is extremly impressive especially when you see the results it produces. I was looking for something of decent quality I could carry around with me but without finding it a burden - exactly what I got... with a bit more. I found it very easy to use, while also containg complex manual settings for the more experienced photographer.
  • Pros: Incredibly stylish due to its looks and size, solid feel and construction, good quality pics
  • Cons: a bit slow on taking pictures

  • Excerpt: Not to long ago I realized that I am simply sick and tired of running arround buying disposable cameras and then paying to much to have them printed in order to scan them back onto my computer. So I decided it was time to go for a digital camera... I bought mine keeping in mind that it had to look good, be small/portable, support SD memory, and still be good value for money. Having looked at a set of varietys I decided to go for the Pentax Optio S30 in the end.
  • Pros: Small, stylish, portable, durable !
  • Cons: Poor battery life !

Nice camera, but a bit slow

22 November 2004
  • Excerpt: I bought the Pentax Optio S30 because I wanted a compact camera that would fit in my pocket and would be easy to carry around, and it certainly fulfils that requirement- its very slim-lined and portable. Other features I particularly like about this camera are the fact that it takes ordinary AA batteries rather than the Li-ion ones, so it's much cheaper to power, and if you are ever stuck in a situation on the move, where your rechargable batteries have run out but...
  • Pros: Compact, takes AA batteries, loads of features
  • Cons: Long shutter delay -  the time from pressing the button to taking the photo
