Pentax *ist DS2 – Review @ PCMag

Terry Sullivan has recently posted his review on Pentax *ist DS2, a 6.1 megapixel CCD sensor Digital SLR camera with 2.5″ LCD screen and the ability to run on AA batteries. He gives the camera 2 out of 5 stars and writes


“Our daylight shots revealed little noise at 100 or 400 ISO, a bit more at 800, and a significant increase at 1600 and 3200, all of which is pretty standard. But compared with the D50, the DS2 introduced more grain and colored noise. We were also disappointed with the quality of the daylight still life, which was underexposed by about 1.5 to 2 stops, resulting in a dark image. Moreover, the picture lacked the sharpness that a D-SLR should produce. Color saturation was good, however, especially in the reds and yellows, despite the underexposure. There was a bit of fringing in the image, but nothing too conspicuous.”
