  • Summary: The Pentax Optio S5z hangs onto its four-star rating despite an uneccessary screen upgrade. The excellent build quality, reliable images and superb video make it worth a closer look. The ease of use is another factor in its favour.

10 June 2006
  • Conclusion: マクロモード時、遠くの被写体にはピントが合わなくなるという使いにくさもあるが、使い方を覚えてしまえば小物撮影の幅が広げられるだろう。 全体のフォルムやボタン類の使い勝手など、カメラとしての基本的な部分は小型ながら満足のいく本機だが、気になる点もいくつかあった。 まず、今回の目玉ともいえる2.5型液晶モニターだが、粒子が粗いのが気になるうえ、明るい屋外では発色も悪くなりがちだった。カシオ計算機のEXILIMシリーズも同様の傾向を見せるなど、このクラスでは仕方がないと考える向きもあるが、ソニーのCyber-shot...
