Pentax Optio S1: 47 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. weight

6. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

7. video recording

8. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

9. color depth

The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.

10. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

11. pixel density

12. width

13. has a built-in HDR mode

It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

19. has built-in optical image stabilization

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

20. has AF tracking

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

21. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

22. has sensor shift stabilization

With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
