Steve's DigicamsPentax A30 review at Steves Digicams : Our good friends at Steves Digicams have published their review of the Pentax Optio A30 digital compact camera. The Pentax A30, a compact digital camera featuring 10.0 effective Megapixels, enabling for photography of fine, high-quality images. The Digital SR mode of the Pentax Optio A30 automatically changes sensitivity according to the brightness of the subject, and effectively reduces camera shakes and subject blurring. For the Pentax Optio A30, the maximum sensitivity has been improved to ISO 3200. With faster shutter speeds, photography with reduced blurring is now possible. The image recording size is fixed to 5m. (2592 x 1944 pixels) when the Digital SR mode is selected.

Pentax Optio A30 - Housing
According to Steve Digicams: "This is definitely an "ultra-compact" camera that's about the size of a deck of playing cards. This will allow you to tuck it away in the smallest of pockets, and the durable metal body ensures it will survive the active users lifestyle. Although very small, it fit quite well in my hands, and the controls are placed just within reach of my fingertips. The Menu system is logically organized, making changing camera settings quick and easy. The large 2.5-inch LCD is the only viewfinder on this model, and is used for image composition, review, and menu navigation."

Pentax A30 review conclusion - Steves Digicams
Steve continues: "Since the A30 already features Pentax' shake reduction technology to help reduce the effects of camera shake, I feel you'd be better off Not using the Digital SR mode. Like the A10, the A30 captures nice portraits both indoors and out. Pentax claims the flash has a range of 23 feet at wide angle (ISO Auto.) I found it worked well indoors, producing very nice exposures with natural skin tones, when shooting from about 6 or 7 feet away, using the telephoto end of the zoom range. Our outdoor portraits are also pleasing, with sharp facial features and good exposure, mainly due to its new Face Recognition AF & AE technology."
