Great, can be better

Yahia Shawkat, Amazon
5 December 2014
  • Summary: After a month with the MZ 1 including a family trip and my two year old's birthday, I can tell where its pros and cons are. It was bought as a replacement for a G12 that I lost and as a primary camera for family stills and video, travel and street photography where I could go to my DSLR for anything more challenging. PROS Size, much better than a compact and easily carried in belt case. Tilt screen a great advantage.

User Review

offertonhatter, DP Review

  • Excerpt: I have had this camera for a few months now so I thought I would share my experience with you. So, what do I think? On the whole it has been a great buy. Mind you, I certainly did not pay the release price of £450. I set myself a threshhold of £200 maximum, and if the camera came down to this then I would invest. Well, it hit £199 albeit for only 2 weeks in Jessops (it has since reverted back to £220). Was it worth it?

Best macro I have ever used for the price.

Frances E. Weaver, Amazon
10 July 2014
  • Summary: Great macro function. Easy to use, with little advance reading of the manual. Love that the exposure dial is on top. Don't love the charger with the long cord- Pentax needs to come up with a battery charge that plugs directly into a wall socket.

Takes great pics

TOM HALL, Amazon
19 June 2014
  • Summary: Well made, kinda heavy for its size but to me that's a plus. A tad too big to carry in your shirt pocket but as a small compact camera it takes awesome pics. Works well in low light. I'd recommend this camera for anyone looking for a top notch, well built compact camera.

A Pentax Fan of Old

Edward, Amazon
30 May 2014
  • Summary: I have been an avid Pentax user since the 1980's and have grown thru a K1000, ME Super and SF1N. I enjoy using this camera, it's looks and feel and real lens cap! The weight is not an issue for me, it is pat of the retro-esque nature of the experience of using this camera. Battery life seems stellar and Macro and Super Macro modes open up new ways to see the details in the world around. What I can't come to terms with is the write speed of images to the memory card.

great image quality but way too heavy

Jaden P, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: somebody doesn't care about its weight. I can recommend strongly but wants to find real point and shoot style. it won't be ideal one. The weight is biggest issue. almost it is way heavier than mirrorless cameras. However, image quality is way great. can't believe that tiny sensor can make great photos.
