Pentax Optio X90

We've given the X90 a grade of B.

Editor's Review

Pentax makes great dSLRs, no doubt, but their fixed-lens cameras are rather uninspiring. The X90 does little to break the monotony -- it's a serviceable superzoom with a big lens, but simply that zoom factor can only do so much to offset the ho-hum image quality. Simply put, there are better superzooms out there.

A lot of bang for you buck$ (scottmoe — 04/25/2010)
I received my Pentax X90 on April 21, 2010, and have had a few days to play with it. So far I am very pleased. I first tested the 1 cm macro and camera shake reduction because it seemed doubtful to me that a 26x optical zoom could do it all. It passed my tests. At 26x the results were sharp and shake free. The macro was also great. Yesterday I used the camera all day at a family reunion in bright sunlight and shady conditions. I left the camera on AUTO to see how it performed and again the results were great. So far I can’t find and problems with this camera. I shopped the internet for this camera and purchased it for $308.00 at Camera Kings (included shipping, camera bag, and starter kit). I checked today and their price increased to $325.00. This is a lot of camera for that price.

WELL AFTER BUYING AT LEAST SEVERAL POINT AND SHOOT CAMERAS , I HAVE FOUND THE PENTAXX90, I Had the panasonic f38 before i bought this, but there is no comparison, the pentax has it beat with the 26xx zoom and the electrinic view finder added. the pentax takes great video and great photos. rather than carring a slr with all the lenses i now just carry my pentax x90. i give it a 4 and 3/4 rating , taking a quater off for the cheap lens cover it comes wit
