CNET have recently posted a review of the Pentax Optio A10, a 8.2 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera featuring 3x optical zoom lens (38-114mm equiv) with built-in Anti-camera shake, and a 2.5″LCD screen.
“Shooting performance was sluggish for a camera in this class. Power up to first image captured measured approx. 3.6 seconds. Shutter lag when pre-focused was approx. 1/10 of a second, slowing to a staggering 1.1 seconds including autofocus time. …..Bottom line – While the Pentax Optio A10 offers some appealing features (8-megapixels, Shake Reduction, etc.), the overall performance of this camera in all areas was disappointing. It does have the ability to capture pleasing photos that have enough resolution to create poster size prints. However, its poor movie mode results and extremely slow shooting performance really bring the model down.”
