  • Despite these flaws, you could do a lot worse for £119. If you want a gazillion dedicated buttons and specialized functions, youll have to look elsewhere. But if youre looking for a sturdy, toss-it-in-your-pocket camera that takes good (though not s...

  • Small but solid; effortless menus and buttons; natural pictures
  • Minor build issues; erratic focus; soft on detail
  • The smart Pentax Optio S12 looks and feels as classy and assured as any of the Pentax S series from recent years. The venerable chassis, though, doesn't really suit such a high-resolution sensor -- the previous 10-megapixel S10 gives just as much usab...

  • Some new products are a giant leap forward, but in the case of the Optio S12, it’s more a case of a tiny step forward. As with its predecessor, you’re getting a camera that will deliver a good performance almost every time you use it. If you a...

  • Great images in good light, Good colour reproduction, High quality build, Plenty of automatic settings to keep casual snappers happy, Green panic button for a quick reset to full auto
  • Conservative maximum sensitivity, Noise reduction destroys detail at high ISO, Occasional Mis-focus when using face detection
  • For the money, the S12 is a very well featured, high quality compact that can yield great results. Images have great colour, and sharpness, with the bizarre choice of aperture in the landscape setting being the only caveat. Id go as far as saying this...

  • Abstract:  REVIEW Pentaxs Optio S12 is a very compact 12-megapixel camera with terrific image quality—both still and video—and some nifty onboard editing options such as color filters and red-eye removal. One a minor caveat: This camera records video in DivX f...

  • Abstract:  In November last year I took a look at the 10-megapixel Pentax Optio S10 , at the time the newest incarnation of the original ultra-compact digital camera, the Pentax Optio S. I was impressed by its simple classic design, solid build quality, brisk perfor...

  • 130 grams, relatively crisp and clear photos, good colours
  • Noticeable lens distortion, some fringing in high-contrast areas
  • Good picture quality and a very small size make the Optio S12 a great camera for parties, day trips or travelling overseas. It’s well-worth considering. ...
