Pentax Optio H90

Pentax Optio H90

To say that the Optio H90 was a tad sensitive to low light would be an understatement. In auto mode, the flash fires off at the slightest hint of a shadow, even when shooting outdoors on a sunny day. A pity, because when the flash is tamed, you can get pretty decent images out of this 12Mp camera. It has to be said, the Optio H90 doesn’t have the most inspiring of designs, even with its two-tone colour, but it does offer a good range of features, including a 5x zoom (28-190mm), face, smile and blink detection systems, 210-shot battery rating, compatibility with Eye-Fi wireless cards and even 1280 x 720p HD recording.
