Pentax Optio 5Sn

Maverell, Ciao
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: "I have owned this camera for 12 months. The picture quality is very good, and it can be used easily - more or less the same as a point and shoot camera. The viewing screen is large enough, and the menu is easy to use. It seems to be shock resistant ! I dropped mine onto a tarmac road and it remained intact and in working condition. It is a great camera to keep in your pocket or handbag, and can be ready to shoot in a couple of seconds. Never ...
  • Pros: Handy size, well built
  • Cons: poor flash

  • Excerpt: "I have been using this camera since early 2005 and its lasted among newer and flashier models. Because of its 5 megapixels it takes fantastic pictures, which can be printed up to A3 in size. One disadvantage has become apparent: When developing the pictures and even when viewed on screen I have noticed that the right hand side of my pictures, taken in focus, are blurred. This is something that has happened over time and has nothing to do with my photography ...
  • Pros: Small, light weight, 5 megapixels .
  • Cons: Has become blurry on one side, too many functions

Pentax Optio s5i

Naturalsp..., Ciao
19 January 2007
  • Excerpt: "This is a great compact camera and I have taken great quality pictures around the world with this camera. Like all compacts it is not suitable for taking distance pictures at night time (There is no manual setting to set the exposure and shutter speed). The night time setting on the camera is purely to turn the flash on and operate in automatic. This problem can be easily rectified however by purchasing a small tripod. The battery life is fantastic ...
  • Pros: Usability, Docking station
  • Cons: None

Pentax Optio s5z

14 July 2006
  • Excerpt: "I have owned this camera for nearly a year now and consider it to be the best camera purchase I ever made. The pictures are fantastic quality and the zoom is much better than you think it is going to be. Capable of recording aswell its great for quick videos for those treasured moments and save on carrying a damn camcorder around with you. The only downside is you need to purchase a good memory card otherwise you will only be able to take ...
  • Pros: Compact Easy to use Very powerful zoom
  • Cons: You gotta buy a memory card

Farewell to SLR ?

Diederik, Ciao
27 January 2006
  • Excerpt: "...when I saw a shop-worn Pentax Optio S5i offered at a knockdown price I thought I'd give digital a go. It's very good, it really is! It didn't take me long to get started and then a couple of sessions with the very good handbook gave me a fair grasp of its capabilities. Being small the S5i has the obvious advantage of portability but the unfortunate disadvantage in my case, that the act of pressing of the shutter button tilts the camera by a ...
  • Pros: Compact yet powerful .  Lots of features to play with .
  • Cons: Battery hungry, cumbersome manual operation, limited f range .

great little camera

hevva106, Ciao
19 January 2006
  • Excerpt: "Having had my previous Pentax Optio S camera stolen, I spent ages searching for a new one - only to realize that pentax are about the only ones that are small and thin with a decent zoom. The new bigger LCD screen makes this version even easier to use. It's great both for fitting in my handbag for a night out and for taking photos of amazing sights when travelling. The picture quality is excellent and the menu system is easy to use - it must be as ...
  • Pros: neat and compact
  • Cons: haven't found any yet !

Pentax Optio S5z

lindsaymb..., Ciao
11 January 2006
  • Excerpt: "This camera is both stylish and compact making it a must for anyone looking for a 5 mega-pixel digital camera. The screen size is amazing, but this means that there is no viewfinder so in dim light it can be more difficult to set up your shot. However, there are many different settings that may be used for night-time photography etc. The camera also features video recording, the length of which is determined by the size of the memory card that you ...
  • Pros: easy to use, stylish, compact

Excellent Camera easy to use

Niknam, Ciao
7 November 2005
  • Excerpt: "I have had this camera for a while now and apart from the battery needing to be charged, I yet to find anything to maon about. Out of the box it is to use with all the pre-sets. The menu's are reasonably intuitive and the screen us great. It uses the SD type memory card which I believe tends to less expensive than most other cards. I have put in a 512mb card and still haven't filled it. I like the "quick delete" button where you can immediately ...
  • Pros: Easy to use, big LCD screen
  • Cons: Proprietary battery

Pentax S5n Great Improvement

Bin_Boy, Ciao
31 August 2005
  • Excerpt: "...note is the fact that Pentax have replaced the flimsy mechanism for the battery and memory card cover which this range of cameras used to suffer from, with a much more sturdy and durable hinged mechanism. Overall the camera is an extremely high quality product, and has some significant, if minor improvements over previous models in the range. Definitely a good buy. ...

A perfect camera, and it fits in an altoids tin!

aimee2525, Ciao
22 August 2005
  • Excerpt: "I spent a long time researching cameras before I chose this one, and I have to say, all of my research paid off! The very best thig about this camera is its size! It is so small that it fits easily into even my tiniest handbag (or my boyfriends pocket!). This means that I have it with me for all those 'I wish I had a camera with me' moments. Despite its size, it does everything I think I could ever want a camera to do. The standard of photos ...
  • Pros: Small, so you can take it anywhere, but packed with great features !
  • Cons: Can be a bit fiddly to use
