A great little camera for the price
on 29 December 2005
I bought this as a 2nd digicam as 103 pounds was so cheap for the size & spec. I'll keep my bigger, older Kodak DX6340 for its longer zoom and stronger flash (and a film SLR for occasional use). The Optio 50 is genuinely shirt pocket size, has a good zoom which goes wider than many and I could get going immediately with spare NiMH rechargables and SD card. The images are nice and sharp with good colour balance. The low light performance is OK rather than great but what do you expect from such a small camera? I also find the controls easy and about right in terms of the number of options. And I like having a viewfinder, unlike on many small digicams. So, an ideal take anywhere camera for those on a budget.
