The Pentax Optio A40 is the subject of a new review posted at Steve’s Digicams.
Here’s what they thought of the $250 12 megapixel Pentax Optio A40 digital camera with 3x optical zoom:
“Bottom Line – The quality of the images from the 12-megapixel Pentax Optio A40 is excellent, as long as you are outdoors or have plenty of ambient light. This is a very compact and stylish model that is full of features. However, the sluggish burst mode and poor indoor or low light shooting was disappointing. When looking at the feature set and MSRP of US$300, the Optio A40 seems like an appealing “ultra- compact”, but the downfalls we found point towards looking at other cameras in this price range. “
