Pentax A20

Pentax UK's website specifies 1/2.5" CCD size for the Optio A20 and the US website says 1/1.8". I wrote to Pentax UK (emailed 4 times etc.) to check if the UK cameras have smaller CCDs than the US ones (and for that matter the UK versions of A10s.) There is no reply. Anyone knows?

There have been reviews of poor A10 performance (long shutter lag, poor focusing, LCD cracking, lens stuck.) Does anyone know of these matters yet??

Hi DeepSan

Have a look here:

According to the manual, it is "1.8-inch interline transfer CCD with a primary
color filter"
