    “I purchased my camera at Morgan Computers near...”

    I purchased my camera at Morgan Computers near Tottenham Court Road (www.morgancomputers.co.uk) about a week ago. Initially impressed with the Pentax Optio 230 this camera comes complete with Lithium Ion battery software including USB drivers, USB transfer cable, RCA TV-Out cable and 1 non-rechargable lithium battery (Panasonic CR-V3). The camera comes in at approximately 13x7x3cm with both optical view or 4cm TFT screen with 3x optical Zoom and 2x digital Zoom. This is the 2Mp capture model… Read Full Review

    Couldn't agree more. An unbaised review with sufficient points covered to make a well informed decision whether it meets a buyer's expectations. Having bought one last May for my daughter's honeymoon trip to Europe and used it for many other occasions since snapping and printed over 500 4R shots of 1600x1200 res with 2 128MB and 1 16MB compact flash memory cards. 1600ah batteries last longer, as much as a 100 shots per charge.Focussing have always been spot on with autofocus and I think the lens is better than the present replacement models,having taken and printed. Yes get the shop to let you take one shot and print it on one of the many printers that they sell such as HP or Canon.

    The Pentax Optio 230 digital camera is absolutely great value. Easy to use. Fantastic quality pictures. I print out onto A4 paper full-size and am really happy with the prints. For family shots and the like I couldn't ask for a better camera. I traded my Canon EOS 500 in for it and have no regrets… Read Full Review
