My moment with the Pentax Optio P70

18 Feb 2021 12:12AM   Views : 601 Unique : 407

I have used all sorts of cameras, and a fair few compact ones as well. The Pentax P70 came to me second hand, I took it into Manchester and down to London and then never used it again. Clearly something else came along that caught my attention, as there is nothing basically wrong with the tiny 12MP P70. It is a capable little travel camera, which is why I took it with me to see Jersey Boys at the Prince Edward Theatre in London.

These were the images I shot with the P70 before it passed by, a shadow in the night.....
