S40 : Blurry left corner

Can you guys tell me if the left bottom corner side of photos coming from the Pentax S40 are blurry (softened) like most of the S4 models did ?

I wholeheartedly agree with what you have said. My main point when buying this camera was because of it's size. I like other features of the camera as well, so an occasional blurry corner does not bother me. Overall, I would say that the camera takes good pictues. If I wanted excellent pictures, I would carry around one of those digital SLRs. But I wanted something that I could put in my pocket and easily take it out and snap pictures. The S40 does this nicely.

Taking pictures with my S4i it is obvious that in certain photo circumstances, macro especially, the depth of field is very narrow--that is front to back. You can have softness in any corner depending on what is in your field of view. Anyone who is terribly concerned about this issue with the S4i or the S40 really ought to consider a camera with a larger lens and CCD. These little cameras have some design limitations so that they can be pocketable. My S4i takes great pictures for what it is and is supposed to do. For superior photos I have to tote my MUCH larger Olympus. There are great in between size cameras from all manufacturers. Give your photographic ambitions their best chance and make sure you check out cameras that do best what is the first priority on your list. The littlest ones just make sure you get the shot--not necessarily the best shot.

I think the first couple of pics gets a blurry corner, and it is quite noticeable.. I hear that it was a problem with some Optio cam but not all. Maybe you could check with Pentax for a replace ? I know it quite anoying but it deserves a serious investigation. And btw, thank you for the samples, great pics. I would be really interested in seeing full size (origianl) images and some portraits. Can you post some on pbase.com ? They have 10 MEGS accounts for free.

Lens coatings sometimes aren't as robust as they should be and some of the lenses are compound types and take a deal of dismantling/reassembly.

I suggest, if you aren't used to servicing optics you should entrust the work to a specialist, especially as Pentax is a fairly premium product.

There are only a few things that can cause this problem.
1. the mirror is not seating all the way down.
2. the pressure plate on the back door is loose.
3. the diopter on the finder is not adjusted to your eye.
4. long exposures ( vibration ).
Check your lenses with a different camera body.
Check your negatives with a magnifier. it could be printer problems.
