Summary: This was my first ever digital camera, and right from the beginning I was not overly pleased. It takes SO long for a picture to be taken, that it definitely did not suit my purposes of catching surprise moments.
Summary: My girlfriend and I have used this camera for over a year now and no matter how many setting adjustments we've made the picture never comes out right. Our problem is not with the shutter speed or the flash speed its the overall color quality of the photos.
Do your homework before purchasing - there are BETTER cameras out there

Summary: I have had this camera for over a year and a half, and agree with the other negative comments posted on this page. Unfortunately, I did not get to test this camera out before purchasing it, but had I done so would have been aware of these issues and would have definitely purchased a different camera...
Summary: My "real" camera is a Nikon P3 which is a superb camera (see my review for that one). I bought this as a second "disposable" camera for family trips and for the kids to play with (when a little older) as I do not want to risk losing or dropping a $450 camera.
Summary: I got this camera as a brithday gift. At first it was sufficient and actually lasted a while but the battery life was HORRIBLE. 2 AA batteries barely lasted one night out and I found myself constantly buying new batteries.
Summary: The shudder speed is terrible with this camera. Don't expect to take pictures of any events or activities. The only pictures that come out are "static" shots where nothing moves. You get what you pay for! Keep shopping! Don't buy!
Summary: As a basic point-and-shoot photographer interested in cataloging my vacations and work travels, I spent a significant amount of time doing research on cameras. When I was in the store, on impulse, I bought this camera not knowing anything about it.
Rule 1: Digital cameras should take good pictures!

Summary: I wanted a cheap "point and shoot" to complement my Nikon D50 when the size and weight of the Nikon SLR were problematic. (Nights out, etc). Having spent most of my budget on the Nikon, I was willing to sacrifice picture quality for getting a budget camera, and looked at the Pentax Optio E10.[...
Summary: No soy un experto en fotografía, pero estoy de acuerdo con las opiniones desfavorables que se han hecho hasta ahora, tarda muchísimo en disparar la foto para cuando la hace ya se ha movido todo el mundo, en interiores no hay luz nunca, y lo de las pilas no tiene nombre es increíble, con la cámara me...
