The Optios

Pentax Optio E50

Now an old model only having 8.1 megapixels, this camera was bought as a snapshot model for parties. As far as I know these cameras are made for Pentax by another company,Casio I think, still the quality is all you would expect.

The image quality is good and the controls easy to master. My favourite mode on this camera is the landscape setting, allowing 3 images to be stitched together in the body.

By using AA batteries and SD cards this camera is easy to use just about anywhere.

Unfortunately I no longer have this camera, it got lost at University by my daughter, still it was fun while it lasted.
