Summary: This camera is awful. The shutter speed is so slow. A lot of the pictures come out blurry. The flash still doesn't make the night time pictures come out bright. And the camera eats up batteries real quickly. This camera only takes real strong batteries or the camera won't even turn on at all.
Summary: I found this page while googling the multiple issues I have with this camera. I thought that I just didn't know how to use it. Unfortunately, it has come to my attention the the flaws are standard, and the only way to fix them is with a really big rock. The Pros: 1. Feels like quality 2.
Summary: I was very excited when I purchased this camera as it was very small and could fit in your pocket or purse and looked like it took really good/clear pictures. WRONG!! Its the worst camera ever.
Summary: Purchased 2 for gifts. Within 30 days both were not working. They had different problems, but neither you could take a picture with. Sent them to Pentex for what should have been warenty work.
Summary: This camera is absolutely horrible. I bought it without researching enough about it unfortunately, and am now going to have to basically throw it away because I probably wouldn't even dream of giving this thing away.
Summary: This camera is the one that will destroy any potential enthusiasm for photography, and is thus even potential poison as a gift for a kid. Other user reviews have mentioned this camera's battery life - 20 pics if you're lucky with alkaline AA's.
Summary: I bought this camera hoping to have a small, very compact camera for those few moments when you want to capure a family event or, just a to take memory snapshots. I went with Pentax E-10 knowing it's company's reputation was strong and in the camera industry for decades.
Summary: I got this because I really wanted a small camera so I would be able to carry it with me everywhere in small belt pouch. I found that my large sony was always home and too cumbersome to carry all the time. Having had Pentax film camera for years, I relied on this to be a quality camera.
Summary: It's a total waste of money. I bought this one 'cause the canon A530 I was going to buy was sold out... after playing with this one for a little bit, I returned to the store to get my money back! Awful quality, my cel phone takes better pictures FOR REAL!
