Summary: I bought this camera after reviewing several others for pleasure use only. I found that this was all I needed for what I wanted a digitial camera for. The program allowing downloading to a PC works great so long as you have a Pentium 2 or better. After adding a 256mb memory chip I find that I can spend an entire month taking pictures before having to download and sort.
Summary: After hours of going through sales ads, trying out cameras in stores, and hours of research on the Internet, my husband and I finally decided on this camera. Reasons? 1) It's lightweight 2) The digital zoom only kicks in after a long pause (if you have it activated) 3) The whitebalance feature and 4) The reasonable price. Before it was shipped, we were still a little worried about how much we'd actually like this camera. I must say that it has "wowed" us so far.
Summary: I received the camera in July but didn't try to use it till September. No damage to package, no reason to believe it wouldn't work. Followed instructions to insert battery (tested--it works) and card, but when I push button to turn on, it doesn't. Since it's my first digital camera, I consulted two friends who are more familiar with them; it didn't work for them either. Screen display doesn't come on.
Summary: Compact, Light Weight, Impromtu camera that easily fits into any pocket. Great Color and Contrast Control right out of the box. Delivers amazingly crisp images for a 2.2 megapixel camera. Of course the proof is in the printing. Never, and I can't emphasize this enough, Never attempt to judge image quality using your Desktop PC. Even the sharpest images will look soft and fuzzy on a Monitor.
Summary: Raves We love it!!Our compact affordable pentax optio 230 has hit the floor a few times and still works fine without a scratch.We have taken it all over Canada and the USA. The swing out lcd monitor is great for fast self portriats or monitoring tripod shots from in front of the camera.The timer is handy too.The 3x optical zoom is a must considering digital zoom degrades pixel quality.Outdoors it produces good landscapes.Indoors the bright flash is more than enough.Great...

Summary: Also diese Camera macht trotz 2 Mio Pixel, was heute absoluter Schrott ist, super Bilder. Die Farben, die Schärfe einfach perfekte Bilder. Aber nicht nur Vorteile krönen das Teil: Die Auslöseverzögerung erinnert an die Vorglühzeit der alten Dieselmotoren! Der Akkubetrieb - Wiederaufladbare leistungsstarke Mignonakkus die auch nach 3-4 Wochen Lagerzeit die Kamera zum Leben erwecken gibt es nur sehr wenige!!
Summary: Die Kamera wäre eingentlich ideal für meine Zwecke gewesen. Vorteile: -normale Accus können werwendet werden. -es ist ein Sucher zusätzlich zum schwenkbaren Display vorhanden -Kamera ist sehr klein, kann also in der Jakentasche transportiert werden. -keine Megapixel - Megagroßen Bilddateien. -leicht verständliches Menü Nachteil: -die Kamera ist aufgrund des imensen Batterieverbrauches unbrauchbar.
Summary: Seitens Vorinformationen kenne ich bereits diese Camera, die bereits vor einigen Jahren hergestellt wurde. Fast baugleiche Pentax-Cameras verwende ich selbst, die sich durch einfache, logische Bedienung und gute Resultate auszeichnen.
