  • Excerpt: Introduction: The Pentax Optio S45 and S55 feature a Pentax SMC 3x optical zoom lens, a 4 megapixel sensor in the S45, and a 5 megapixel sensor in the S55, and a large 2.5" screen, all encased in a small aluminium body. The Pentax Optio S45 is available from around £110 , and the Pentax Optio S55 is available from around £167 | $219 making the S45 very good value for money and the S55 very good value for money (in the US).
  • Pros: Good photo quality, Custom White Balance, Manual Focus, Excellent value for money fully featured compact digital cameras, Contrast / Saturation / Sharpness controls (this should be standard on all digital cameras!), Audio recording (I'd like it if this was standard on all P&S digital cameras), Takes AA batteries, Very compact, Low noise upto ISO200
  • Cons: Tripod mount at very edge of camera, Only 11mb memory provided, Lacks manual aperture / shutter controls, S45 photos seemed more blue and struggled to focus

26 September 2009
  • Summary: A 4 megapixeles Pentax Optio S45 a méretéhez képest hatalmas LCD mellett azzal hívja fel magára a figyelmet, hogy az automatikus beállítások mellett szokatlanul sok kézi beállítási lehetőséget is kínál.

Pentax Optio S45

Absolut Photo
20 December 2008
  • Excerpt: L'Optio S45 reprend la grande majorité des atouts de son grand frère le S55. Seule différence, le capteur 4 mégapixels et donc un prix encore plus abordable. Doté d'un design compact et élégant et d'un écran géant 2,5", l'Optio S45 est destiné avant tout aux débutants. Ainsi l'utilisation de l'appareil est extrèmement simple et efficace. Il dispose d'une très bonne automonie et propose de nombreux modes de prises de vue et une quinzaine d'effets pour les plus créatifs.
  • Pros: Rapport qualité / prix, Compacité et élégance, Simplicité d'utilisation
  • Cons: La finition pourrait être améliorée
