Pentax Optio S55

TrustedReviews reviewed the Pentax Optio S55 today. Their thoughts-
"As a budget compact, the Optio S55 has a lot going for it, but unfortunately it is let down by image noise problems and a very confusing list of modes and options. It is rugged and well made though, so you could do worse for your winter holidays."
