Optio s60 Review

Pentax Optio s60 introduction : The latest addition to the award-winning range of Optio compact digital cameras, the Pentax Optio s60 offers high-quality imaging performance with 6.0 megapixels and 3x optical zoom. The Auto Select mode selects the most suitable shooting mode for the environment, making it even easier to take digital photos. OptioS60 - Excellent image quality vs the price you pay for this little gadget.

Pentax S60 camera - 12 Shooting modes all up for almost every possible condition. The camera also features a large, 2.5 inch LCD screen, making shooting and playback simple and your photo easy to view. Using the convenient mode dial, users can access a wide variety of shooting modes.

Pentax Optio S60 - Auto Select mode is probaly the best option for most conditions. Auto Select mode makes it simple for inexperienced users to take digital pictures. All the user has to do is select Auto Select mode on the mode dial and the camera automatically activates the best shooting scenario for the scene at hand from a choice of programme, portrait, landscape and night mode.

Full user opinion
I'm very disapointed with this camera. For something bearing the Pentax brand, the picture quality does not live up to the name. I used the camera on a holiday, the only images that came out ok was when it was outdoor with adequate lighting. During the night it was a waste of memory.
