DigiCamReview.co.ukPentax Optio S6 review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Pentax Optio S6 digital camera review. The Pentax S6 digital camera features a 3X optical zoom lens and incorporates a large, 2.5-inch LCD monitor that offers 232,000 total pixels. Employing a 1/2.5-inch primary color CCD, the Pentax Optio S6 delivers 6.0 effective Megapixel performance. A new approach to the design of the lens unit including the Pentax Sliding Lens System has enabled the Pentax S6 camera with very compact dimensions. On the Pentax OptioS6 digital compact camera, the Mode pallet allows the user to select from the diverse range of 15 shooting mode icons and 14 playback icons in an instant.

According to Joshua Waller: "The Pentax Optio S6 its speed is average to switch on and take photos, being ready in around 2 - 3 seconds, the lens extending seems to slow the camera down. Focusing seemed average in low-light, despite the focus assist lamp focusing did struggle in low-light, and was slower than the Casio Exilim EX-Z120 (without focus assist lamp!). The playback mode is fairly quick, but displays a blurred image first, and then a clearer version second."

Pentax S6 camera - Operation
Joshua continues: "The camera is very easy to use, especially in AUTO / Program mode or one of the scene modes, even though the camera has a lot of options. The controls on the back of the camera are quite straight forward - the menus are responsive and easy to read and navigate. The modes are easy to access, quick and simple, although the playback menu is accessed by pressing the mode button instead of using the menu button which was slightly confusing. The green button isn't labeled very well, it acts like a function button to give quick access to image size / compression etc, and the options can be customized."

Pentax Optio S6 compact camera
"The camera has fairly good color with saturated colors, there is no red-eye in the photos. The camera did a fairly poor job focusing in low-light, often not focusing correctly, even though the camera does have a focus assist lamp. Noise is acceptable up to ISO200. At ISO400 noise is clearly visible, and this setting should be avoided - beware of the auto mode choosing this in dark conditions. The Candlelight mode is best avoided as well, but could be used for acceptable 6x4 prints when you didn't want to use the flash. The best results are achieved by sticking with the lowest ISO settings, such as ISO64 and ISO100," concludes Joshua. You want to learn more about the Pentax digital camera?
