Pentax Optio X90

(June 2010)

A megazoom, well featured, digital bridge camera, the Pentax Optio X90 possesses good specifications and at a very good price.

What’s good:

  • Good wide angle at lower range of zoom
  • Versatile zoom takes telephoto range up to a massive 676mm equivalent
  • Fantastic flash range

What’s disappointing:

  • Above average amounts of noise at all ISO settings
  • Optical zoom can’t be used during video shooting
