15 Reasons For

Pentax Cameras Have Excellent Reviews

Pentax has excellent average ratings across all cameras, however it has poor ratings specifically within its compact camera digital cameras range.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many digital cameras of this age and spec. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

Chart Edit

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC memory card, which is typical of many digital cameras of this spec and age. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this camera is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX50[plb_2154757_price] (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100[plb_2118439_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.

Has an Image Stabiliser

The Pentax Efina has an image stabiliser. Most of the other compact camera digital cameras that are a comparable age to the Efina also have an image stabiliser.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative digital cameras with an image stabiliser currently available including because of it's better review score, the J1455[pl_1773004_price], or the A1455[pl_1772760_price] both from GE or the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price].

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The Pentax Efina has a built-in flash, as do most of the other similar spec digital cameras that were released around the same time as the Efina.

We compared all the other cameras with a built-in flash to this digital camera and we think the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
