Pentax Optio E30 - Test Shots - Full Res Crops

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.


For comparison with other compacts, here's my usual shot of the cathedral window. Click to see a full-sized version.


This is a crop from near the centre of the previous image. The level of detail is quite poor for a 7MP camera.


The 3x zoom lens on the E30 isn't too bad, producing relatively good edge-to-edge sharpness and only slight barrel distortion.


This is a corner crop from the previous image, showing the lack of corner blurring.

I was surprised that your review of the Optio E30 was so negative. I've had one for over a year now, and have been quite pleased with its performance. One feature that no one seems to mention is the possibility of recording sound alone, so that the camera becomes a digital "tape" recorder that's excellent for speech and even not bad for music.

I have the same camera for over 7 years, 7400 pictures or videos taken. And it still goes strong.
