Review submitted for Pentax Optio S1 Ultra-Compact Digital Camera - Green (PKOPTS1GN)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Small / Compact, Good Image Quality, Easy To Use, Short Lag Time, Nice Body Color, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom
Cons: LCD Clarity, Low light
Other Comments: Overall a great package, the LCD screen could be larger and clearer as it doesn't make for a good representation of the actual image taken. Low light photo's suffer from tinting, and fringed edges. With ample lighting and correct scene mode, it makes for a great camera. Manual adjustments are not totally limited, however you can not adjust shutter speed. Does do great macro shots though.
