Pentax Optio S40

PC Magazine
29 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Pentax U.S.A. Inc., www.pentaxusa.com $299 list Compact. Good lens. Good help features. Real-time histogram. Small LCD. Mediocre indoor photos. Slow boot and recycle times; drains standard double-A batteries very quickly. Compact and reasonably priced for its feature set, the 4-megapixel Optio S40 suffers when it comes to image quality and, above all, speed.

  • Summary: The new Optio S40 is a compact camera that packs a 4 megapixel imager and a 3X optical zoom lens in a sleek aluminum design. It featuring a smc Pentax lens coupled with their Sliding Lens system that allows the lens to fully retract inside the camera when it is turned off. Equipped with PictBridge technology, the S40 connects directly to any PictBridge compatible printer so you can print images without the use of a personal computer.

Röviden: Pentax Optio S40

  • Summary: Néhány hónappal ezelőtt volt szerencsém közelebbről megismerkedni a Pentax Optio S4-gyel, a világ legkisebb 4 Mpixeles, 3x-os zoomos gépével. Akkor arról írtam, hogy, bár a gép nem olcsó, a pénzünkért kapott tudás és elsősorban minőség ellensúlyozza a boltban hagyott vaskos összeget. Ezt a tézist támasztja alá az S4 népszerűsége is, és ha egy üzlet beindul.

Als het compact moet zijn

  • Summary: De detailweergave is bij de twee camera’s even goed. Ook de kleurweergave is accuraat. De foto’s van de Pentax Optio S40 zijn bij gelijke instellingen iets contrastrijker. De beelden zijn scherp, maar in de linkerbovenhoek van de foto’s van de Optio S4i testcamera is er wel een erg onscherpe zone. Een dergelijk euvel is meestal te wijten aan een constructiefout.
