Dave examines Pentax' compact 3mpix digicam...
After a long hiatus, Dave's back to some catch-up work in the review arena. Today it's the Pentax Optio 330, a very small 3 megapixel digicam with a full 3x optical zoom lens.
Overall, a nice little camera, with good color quality and surprising low light capability. Also surprising is that it offers full manual exposure control as an option, rarely seen on subcompact cameras like this. We found the 330's images to be a bit soft (a common limitation of subcompact digicams, it seems), and the battery life was rather short (also common with compact models), but the images looked very nice, with good color and tone.
