One truly amazing camera!

sunday-echoes, Ebay

  • Summary: This is one truly amazing compact camera! My larger camera is a Nikon, and at the time, I was a little hesitant to purchase a point and shoot camera, for fear that it would not measure up. Boy was I wrong! I'm truly impressed with the picture quality, it's endless features and ease of operation.

a flaky camera.

Coley B. Duncan, MD "ID Doc", Amazon

  • Summary: My wife thought she did not know how to operate it, but it turns out that the camera is just not reliable. While trying to take pictures of our children on Santa's lap, it just died on me. Lense telescoped out. Screen black. Just dead. Nothing I did to it would get it going again.

  • Summary: I now have two of these camera's. They take great pictures and are easy to use. The function button and on screen display are easy to read and use. The shake control helps eliminate blurry pictures. There are many different settings and modes that should meet everyone's needs.

A great value for a great camera!

19 August 2009
  • Summary: I decided to upgrade my camera from the 7MP Pentax Optio M30 to this, the 12MP Optio A40. The 12 Mega Pixels allows for huge prints and AWESOME "crop-ability". I have to say it took a while to get used to the new features on the newer Pentax - but true to their pedigree the camera takes excellent...

Pentax Optio A40

  • Summary: This is a great little camera. I've had it for just a short time, but I just returned from a trip where I took 75 photos--using a number of the camera's features. All the photos were wonderful. I edited only 3 or 4, but that was because of unusual lighting conditions.
