Summary: This is a fine product. Extremely easy to use, good battery life. Images are good quality, but not at extremely close ranges. The red eye reduction, flash and lens are all excellent quality, and as good as you'd find on a $300 camera today. I also liked the way the memory card and battery doors are separate, meaning you do not have to mess with the batteries everytime you need to take out the card.
Summary: Excellent camera for a beginner, and also advanced users. Changing the resolution is a big plus for me. Small size adds to comfort, going through parameters of the camera is very easy. I have old restored cars, and trucks, I set the resolution low to email pictures faster. Can't go wrong buying one of these.
Summary: We bought this camera on a cruise and really loved the ease of starting in the digital camera world. It takes great pics and is simple to use. Have had no problems with it in the last 3 plus years.
Summary: I absolutely love this camera. I purchased the camera in December and have been impressed with the results. It is easy to use and I just love all the features that it offers, especially the 3D mode. I found the night shooting mode gave great results, although you must be careful to keep the camera still, allowing for the longer exposure. I download the photos into iphoto (which also is great) so am not familiar with the software that comes with the optio 330 gs.
Summary: I bought this camera about two weeks ago and am thoroughly enjoying it. My only complaint is that it doesn't have quite as many manual features as I would like (I have been using an SLR). Overall it seems to be a good little camera, but you will probably need to get another CompactFlash card before you do any serious photography as the one that comes with it only holds about 9 photos at highest quality. The quality of the pictures is great!
Summary: This a great little pocket rocket camera. Takes compact flash,uses AA rechargable Nimh batteries and has a 3X fast optical zoom. The Nimh's are the way to go-get the 1800mAh capacity and they will last longer than you think. The lens looks like it's the same as the one on the new nikon 3100. Amazon.com had it on sale...shipped-a screamin deal!
Summary: I know Pentax is one of the best cameras, this time they made it, it's perfect, so easy to operate, it takes so clearly the pictures, I just love it. Just buy a Big Compact Flash and enjoy the show!!!
Summary: This is my third digital camera, and I love it. It is very easy to use and not hard to learn. It is very small and just fits right into just about any pocket. I with definitely enjoy it for a while.
Summary: This was my first digital camera purchase. I have approximately 10 years of 35mm SLR photo experience so I was looking for a camera that had some manual features and would function well taking night photos. Picture quality is excellent so far, as I haven't had the camera for very long (this is also the only reason I was hesitant to choose 5 stars). Using the auto-focus will take some adjustment.
Summary: Before I purchased the Optio 330GS I had tried using an early Kodak digital model. It had no zoom, limited functions and drained batteries. In comparison, this camera is a gem. It has everything the novice photographer could ever need: 3 x digital zoom, several picture modes (including self portrait and 'snow and surf' modes), movie function (upto 30 seconds) and a good autofocus. Furthermore it is easy to use and the software provided is fast and efficient.
