4.0 out of 5 stars Change of camera, 4 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pentax X90 Digital Camera - Metallic Blue (12MP, 26x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (Electronics)
I have used Canon cameras for quite a long time and when my son decided that he needed to "borrow" my Canon supershot I looked around to see what I could replace it with. All the cameras in that range seemed to have dispensed with the view finder, something which I find invaluable in framing a picture. I looked at the Pentax X90 and liked what I saw.
I have had this camera for some six weeks now and overall I am very happy with it. Battery life is good, lasting for just under 300 frames of fine standard. The quality of images produced is excellent,sharp and clear.The range of options within the menu is staggering. My only gripe is that the zoom facility does not allow you to zoom back if you need to without going all the way and then having to re frame to get the image you want. It would be better if you could go partially back to change rather than going the whole hog!!
Overall I would recommend this camera despite not being too sure about the colour!!

This comment I found helpful, but I don't understand this:
"My only gripe is that the zoom facility does not allow you to zoom back if you need to without going all the way and then having to re frame to get the image you want. It would be better if you could go partially back to change rather than going the whole hog!!"
Do you mean here that when fully zoomed in on a particular object then if you wanna zoom out only a tiny bit, then you will have to zoom out fully then back to the desired depth? Besides, while shooting a video sequence, can this camera handle the changing of zoom in the process? Cheers! Krisz
