I just couldn't resist the Optio H90

Just for Pentax Day, i ran across this model while searching for reviews on another manufacturer's model (boo, hiss...yeah i know...lol) since all i do now is P&S what a great way for me to stay in the Pentax forum. I ordered from Prodigital and it was actually cheaper today??? The silver/white model although considered a "basic" model it actually got some favourable reviews online, i didn't see any here so hopefully i can do time permitting a reasonable review on it.
I never thought i would ever purchase a Pentax branded P&S as the other manufacturers have that market more or less to themselves where Pentax "seems" to be unrecognized and unreported/uneviewed to a lesser extent.

So now i wait for the FedEx delivery and hopefully i'm home to start shooting with it, i'm pretty much a mall/home guy not by choice

Anyone here have one willing to share some thoughts, pointers on what to or not expect?

macro is...meh




just cropped, resized and framed otherwise image is right off the card, exif should be intact.

A few others cropped, resized and framed.













The last 2 were cropped a lot, the last one they weren't giving way to pedestrains so i had this from when i spotted them far away when they reached me i had to step off the sidewalk.

This is why you should read the manual, i think i was in "auto" for this, i just need a little 'quicker" shutter speed or give me 2 green buttons

A P&S for capturing the action it's not...

...well only if you're restricted by a boundry outside of the longest optical focal length...still playing with it using a couple of settings/presets...i might impress myself just yet, please bear with the crap

Macro has a lot of potential...

Super macro with "Flower" preset samples

These are untouched except for resizing and framing plus titles. Distance was <6 inches, i didn't think weeds were this "pretty"







This was the weed patch these samples came from:
