Excerpt: I love taking pictures and digital cameras are pretty much my only preference for photos these days. I know what I like in my photos: crisp, clear color and great quality. The Pentax Optio A10 digital camera is a reasonably nice camera to have. It has a large screen which …
Great quality photos, convienent size, but not durable and not quick.

Summary: I am now on #3 of the Pentax A10. I have been using one since 2006. It takes excellent quality photos. The small size is convenient. This camera is not quick. The number of seconds it takes to hold down the button to take a picture is disappointing.
Summary: I have to hide this thing, because everyone in the family is always looking to use it, but this one does not get away from me, because its light weight and easy travel, makes it perfect for me wherever I go.
Reliable workhorse with great features for photographing textual documents

Summary: The Pentax Optio A10 is now quite a dated camera. It does not support SDHC cards and thus one is limited to below 2G SD cards, if you can find them anywhere else other than E-Bay. Most retail sellers no longer carry them. That said, the Optio A10 has several redeeming features.
Summary: Excellent Quality and Performance. I was a little leary over the reviews about the ISO 200 settings until I saw ALL the compact cameras have the same ISO fault at that level. Since I do not need a Hasselblad this camera will do just fine.
For those who take a lot of pictures where the final quality matters most.

Summary: This truly is a pocket sized camera. Just a bit smaller than the average mans wallet. This is a camera that you can take with you all of the time. the large display screen makes it easy to just point and shoot. I have owned quite a few digital cameras over the years.
Summary: I love the size, the quality of the photographs and the ease of operation - I have other cameras but find myself carrying this one at all times - you never know when there will be a "Pentax" moment happening and you want to be ready!
Summary: I love this camera. I have owned 4! I carry this as a back-up when I am shooting professionally. I have sold numerous shots from this camera including ones blown up to 20x24. The Pantax Optio A10 is so popular, it is hard to find and the prices are often as high used as new.
