Pentax *ist DS2 – Review @ Steve’sDigicams

Steve’sDigicams has posted a 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


“The image noise was practically non-existent at ISO 200, at ISO 400 it’s still very clean, and at ISO 800 shadow noise becomes noticeable. At ISO 1600 noise becomes noticeable in highlights, but the images are quite usable. I would use ISO 3200 only if it made the difference between capturing an image or not. While noise is present at the higher ISO settings, the *ist DL compares favorably in this respect with the high-end prosumer digicams that overlap its price range. “
