Pentax P70 Digital Camera Review »

Chris Hardwick joins Kevin Pereira for this Camera Week review of the Pentax P70 digital camera, and sizes it up its features, like face and blink detection, smile capture and pixel track shake reduction.

Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.

What You Need to Know

  • It's the thinnest camera in Camera Week at 0.8" thick
  • Only weighs about 4.5 oz.
  • The directional pad and buttons are easy to use and everything is spelled out pretty clearly
  • The LCD could be a little bigger
  • It's also a little slow to power up and shoot
  • Overall, you shouldn't have much trouble using this
  • Even though the price is low, it still has things like face and blink detection, smile capture, and image stabilization called "Pixel Track Shake Reduction"
  • It's basically finding blur on each pixel and smoothing it out
  • It also slows down your picture-taking considerably on top of the already-slow shutter
  • Normal light is surprisingly good; colors are accurate and details are mostly sharp, although the focus might feel a bit soft sometimes
  • Low light isn't too bad either; the flash distributes light evenly, but if you don't use it, pictures become way too blurry, even with very little movement


  • $150
