Pentax Optio S55

  • Summary: Visibly larger and thicker than its more expensive 'cousin' the Pentax Optio S55 has more user-adjustable settings than the S5z and is, therefore, more likely to appeal to keen photographers. With the same sensor, lens and LCD monitor as the S5z but a top-mounted mode dial with seven still photo settings plus movie and voice recording modes. . .
