  • Excerpt: Judging whether or not a camera has that special "X-factor" is a lot harder than simply wearing your trousers high or marrying an old metaller with the shakes. Pentax, for instance, is trying to sway our opinion of its latest camera by including the letter X in its name (hey, it worked for Liberty and Malcolm).

  • Summary: The Optio X has been designed for the average snapper – someone who wants the whole photography process to be simple and, above all, stylish. It’s a well-built machine that will get you noticed, but the image quality and price mean we can only recommend it if you simply have to have it for that flexible twist design.

Pentax Optio X

Opinamos
22 October 2006
  • Summary: Estamos ante una cámara impresionante por donde se le mire y con un repertorio de posibilidades y aplicaciones que harían pensar en un precio mayor, se nota que es una maquina que pretende expandirse en el mercado (de otra manera sería muy difícil explicar su precio) De entrada impacta el diseño de la maquina con un acabado en aleación de aluminio que le permite un maneo muy cómodo al usuario, sus dimensiones son bastante practicas (11.2 x 1.8 y 5.4 en ancho, profundidad...

  • Conclusion: Deze Optio X is een zeer potente broekzakcamera. Het is zo�n camera die je altijd bij je draagt zodat je altijd een goede foto kunt maken. Zijn adviesverkoopprijs van 500 euro is dan wel stevig aan de prijs, als je ziet dat de adviesprijs per megapixel nu rond 80 euro ligt.
  • Pros: superdun, 3x zoom, 5 megapixel
  • Cons: prijzig, geen oculairzoeker

Röviden: Pentax Optio X

pixinfo.com
19 September 2005
  • Summary: A Pentax első elforgatható optikás digitális fényképezőgépe az Optio X. Sok gyártó él ezzel a módszerrel, s sokaknak tetszik is ez a megoldás. Nem is csoda, hiszen - akárcsak a kihajtható, elforgatható LCD, az elforgatható optika is - lehetővé teszi a fej fölül, vagy talajhoz közeli fotózást anélkül, hogy a kijelzőt rosszul látnánk.

  • Excerpt: A me ricorda un po’ le radio brionvega dei tempi andati. In realtà la Pentax Optio X è una fotocamera unica nel suo genere, con il corpo composto da due elementi uno dedicato all’obiettivo, l’altro dedicato al visore lcd, l’obiettivo ruota di 180° permettendo di scattare foto solitamente difficili 10-11-2005
  • Pros: Rotazione dell’obiettivo, Qualità immagine, Ridotto spessore
  • Cons: Impugnatura, Meccanismo delicato

Pentax Optio X

  • Excerpt: À l'instar du µ-mini d'Olympus, l'Optio X fait partie de ces appareils qui misent avant tout sur leur apparence pour séduire. De ce point de vue, ce Pentax est une vraie réussite. Compact et fin (112x54x18 mm) avec une robe argentée et noire, il reprend les recettes qui ont fait le succès des appareils de poche ultraportables ( Canon Ixus 40 , Casio Exilim S100 , Konica Minolta Dimage X50 ).
