a flaky camera.

  • 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: Wow, what a piece of junk!!! This thing rarely focuses correctly. I just got the camera back from pentax because I thought it was broken. It wasn't broken, it's just a poor excuse for a camera. Not only does it not focus correctly, it has noise coming out the wazoo! 12 megapixels?...right!

  • Summary: My camera refused to retract the lens only 5 weeks after I bought it. Pentax refused to repair it because they said I dropped it. I baby my electronics so much it makes my girlfriend jealous.
