Summary: Great camera with exception picture quality. I have been using this pentax for over 2 years and have had no problems. Does what it says and is very high quality. You could upgrade to a newer version but its really not necessary. This A30 has all the bells and whistles and you can save a ton of $ with it.
Summary: First camera DOA, lens extended on power up and the camera locked up. Have to pop battery out to reset. Sent back, 2nd camera worked about 3 months and then the famous date-time resets everytimg you power off. Very common read dpreview. Got it fixed under warranty (PCB repair) and 6 months later the problem reappeared. Picture quality good though very contrasty and oversharpened. Divx video is horrific. LCD near impossible to see in daylight.
Summary: I had just received the Pentax Optio A30 camera the other day and was quite impressed form the start. I have read the reviews on line before I made up my mind to bid on this camera and they where all above average. The camera is very easy,to use and has a host of features that are fun and easy to use. The camera it self is small light weight and with its image stabilizer takes one great picture after another.
Summary: My husband bought me this camera about 2 years ago for my birthday, and now again that my birthday is approaching in 6 days, my husband purchased me the new Pentax 70x. I loved this camera when I first got it, however after a year of having it, no drops or any misuse. The lense wouldnt shut properly, and the pictures are always blurry. Its like you have to wait for the camera to adjust whenever you need to take a picture, and take multiple pictures until it does.
