Pentax Optio A40

The Optio A30 was replaced by the A40 in the spring of 2008 The difference from the A30 is slim, however.
THE OPTIO A10 was the first premium member of the growing Optio family, available from the end of March 2006. The Optio A10 was subsequently replaced by the A20 with slight improvements, and this was again rather quickly replaced by the 10MP A30 that finally seems to live up to the promises made for this premium Pentax compact series. The next entry will be the Optio A40 with a 12 MP sensor that was delayed to the spring of 2008 after a fire in the battery factory. Pentax (Japan) A40 listing. DPReview release notes.

Optio A30

Dimple Pinky stars Pucchi and Evil flank the neat Pentax A30 compact camera.

The Optio A10 was the first digicam from Pentax to feature image stabilization, or Shake Reduction, as Pentax would have it. Two sensors register camera movements and move the image sensor to compensate with the help of two solenoids.
The probably worst thing with the A10 was the display that was virtually useless in bright light. The A30 screen is better but still difficult to see in sunlight. New in the A30 is Face Recognition for Auto Exposure and Auto Focus. The movie feature offer some Shake reduction and can save as DivX (on a PC) for longer movies.

Optio A30

The Optio A30 is slightly larger than the original Optio A10. The sensor now boasts 10 MP.

The Optio A30 screen is the same size but much improved, although it is not obvious in this photo.

Impressions

Cliff Smith of Trusted Reviews finds the Optio A30 to be Pentax’s best ultra-compact camera to date. With stylish design, and outstanding picture quality. “It is a superb camera and one which puts Pentax firmly back into contention at the top of the market.”

Bridezillas

OK, this is an Optio A10 photo but quite nice, nevertheless, I think ;-)
