DCRP Review: Pentax Optio 550

You read our review of this camera, right?

The photographs below were taken at default settings, with the ISO fixed at 64. The image quality and resolution were at their highest levels.

Photos 1-7 were taken in and around UC Berkeley.

Photos 8-10 were shot on "BART to SFO preview day". If you live in the Bay Area, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Photo 11 was taken at the parents' house.

Photo 12 is from my future home in Brentwood, CA.

Clicking on the thumbnail will display a reduced, 800 x 600 image. Clicking on the link below that will show the full-size (large!) image. Please do not judge the photo quality from any image except for the full-size image, as these smaller images were recompressed when they were downsized.

I've noted any special modes I used underneath the photo. You can click on "View EXIF data" to get additional information about each photo.

Look carefully and you can spot the SF skyline. I think I accidentally took this one at the ** quality level.

Kind of reminds me of the Haunted Mansion at Disney World.

If I'm not mistaken, that castle in the back is a fraternity house.
