Pentax Optio W10 Review

Pentax Optio W10 digital compact camera
The Pentax Optio W10 is a typical example of a small camera aiming at the photographer looking for user convenience and an easy-to-operate camera. This type of user generally isn't keen on having to worry about all sorts of "unnecessary" actions; they just want to capture the fun moment by a simple, single push of the button. The Pentax W10 is a camera that features virtually no manual settings, but does offer a diversity of creative photo options through the intelligent in-camera software. The camera's operation is straightforward, and the structure of both the menu and the buttons has been kept clear and simple. We do not see all that many changes from its predecessor, with this camera it are the details that count. The six Megapixels have remained unaltered, and offer sufficient material to print to up and including A4 size. It would be great if Pentax managed to equip a future generation with slightly more zoom in wide-angle or tele. The 3x optical zoom isn't quite up to par anymore, although it is still regarded as a standard for average daily use.
