Jeff Keller gets hands on with Pentax's tiny 4 megapixel digicam...
The good folks at the Digital Camera Resource Page have posted a full review of Pentax' Optio 430, the 4 megapixel sibling of the ultra-compact Optio 330 model. Jeff sums up as follows:
"The Pentax Optio 330 and 430 are the two best mini-camera out there, just edging out the Kyocera Finecam S3. For some people, I think the 330 is fine -- 4 Megapixels may be overkill. If you choose the 430, there are some tradeoffs: the shorter flash range, and smaller shutter speed range. There is also the occasional focusing difficulties, and poor battery life. But for a tiny, easily pocketable digital camera, the Optios are a great choice."For a whole lot more, including sample images and photos of the camera itself, read Jeff's review...
