The 8-MP Pentax Optio A10 won’t win any beauty contests, but it will barely cause a bulge in your pocket.
Functionality comes first, and this super-slim shooter takes great-looking photos. Colors look accurate and images overall are crisp with good saturation. We only wish that shooting with the Optio A10 was a bit faster; there is a noticeable lag between frames.
Overall, the Optio A10 gets the job done. It might not have the coolest design or as many features as other point and shoots, but its photos are impressive-and that’s what matters.
