Pentax's tiny 3 megapixel digicam reviewed by Jeff Keller...
Our friends at the Digital Camera Resource Page have now posted their review of Pentax's diminutive Optio 330, which was first announced back in March. The Optio 330 is a 3 megapixel, 3x optical zoom digicam with features including a 7-point autofocusing system and some manual capabilities. Jeff concludes:
"The cameras impressive features, good photo quality, and controls lead me to recommend the Optio 330. There were a few issues though: there's the usual battery problem (small camera = small battery = small capacity). There's also the focusing troubles that I had in lower-light situations (if you're going to be doing lots of low-light shooting I'd test the camera carefully before buying it). And the camera also had the tendency to get hot after use." When you're done with Jeff's review, get a second opinion from the folks at Steve's Digicams...
Incidentally, Jeff is also continuing to update his MacOS X compatibility list at the DCRP... If you're considering upgrading, check the list first; if you're an OS X user and can fill in any blanks, drop Jeff an email...
