Steve's DigicamsPentax Optio S6 review at Steves Digicams : Our good friends at Steves Digicams have published their review of the Pentax Optio S6 digital camera. The Pentax S6 packs 6.0 effective Megapixels and a large 2.5-inch LCD into a small housing. The Pentax S6 digital camera also features a 3X optical zoom lens. The Pentax OptioS6 incorporates a large, 2.5-inch LCD monitor that offers the clarity of 232,000 total pixels. And because it is a Beau-Reflective monitor (low-reflection type) with a built-in backlighting mechanism, it can be viewed easily and clearly even outdoors in sunny weather. Offering video with 640x480 recording pixels at a swift rate of 30fps, the Pentax OptioS6 camera delivers smooth movies with camcorder quality.

According to Steve Sanders: “The onscreen Menu system was very simple to navigate, with legible text. I had no problems with its LCD when shooting outdoors in bight sunlight; which is an improvement over the S5z. Although the display does not "gain up" when using it in marginal lighting conditions, the camera's exposure system is sensitive and allowed us to frame subjects in your typical tungsten lit living room; however the display does get just a little bit grainy.”

Optio S6 digital camera - Steve Digicams review conclusion
Steve continues: “Shooting performance was average for a camera in this class. Image quality was not that impressive for a 6-megapixel model, but don't get me wrong, it did produce nice photos. Noise levels were average for a consumer model in this class, becoming more noticeable as you increase the ISO sensitivity. Movie mode was disappointing. While it did produce video with a small amount of compression artifacts and its AF system did very well while panning, for some reason all the movies are very choppy. The S6's battery life was good, especially when you consider how small its 3.7v 710mAh battery pack is. You want to learn more about the Pentax Optio digital camera?
