Pentax Optio E10 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 6.11 (out of 10)
Hands-On Preview: "Launched at the CES 2006 show in January, the Pentax Optio E10 is the flagship model in a new Pentax line of entry level, budget digital cameras aimed at users who want a simple photographic experience. Priced at under $200 and available this February, the new camera eschews some of the advanced features on Pentax's more expensive and simultaneously launched Optio A10.

It's obvious that the E10 has been built to appeal to users on a budget. It's not that the Pentax Optio E10 is a bad camera – it's just that there really isn't anything outstanding about it. In our limited testing, we found the image quality to be fair, but not great; there's a certain amount of noise at the maximum ISO setting of 200, and this low maximum ISO will be a problem for low light shooting. At this price point, however, building an outstanding camera is incredibly tough. The E10 is an inexpensive camera, and you get what you pay for. The E10 will cost $199.99 and will be available in February."

Review: "Announced on the 4th of January 06, the Pentax Optio E10 is a new, budget 6 megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.4" screen and a compact plastic body. The 3x optical zoom lens is equiv. 35-114mm on a 35mm camera.

he Pentax Optio E10 is a budget 6 megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens and a fairly large 2.4" TFT screen. The camera's price makes the camera appear to be a bargain, but the camera has far too many problems for it to be recommended. Speed in use, high noise, poor picture quality, poor video mode, and poor screen quality are just some of the cameras flaws."
