Summary: I love this little camera as it is so portable. I can easily carry it in my purse for all those photo opportunities that come along when I least expect it. The picture quality is wonderful. The only thing I don't like about it is that it takes AA batteries rather than a battery with a charger.
An excellent camera in a small package, easy to keep close at hand!

Summary: This is the third Pentax Optio E40 I have owned, I take photos of work projects and I haven't always been careful to protect the LCD; however, this one is carefully guarded. I have used many cameras, point and shoot, SLR, both film and digital; this little camera is the best "all-around" camera I have used. The zoom incldes digital and is excellent. Panoramic mode is an option I use often; other modes include snow, pet, action, and portrait, among others.
Summary: I'm going to get the one negative remark out of the way before I blast away with the positive on this product; It's delicate. I broke mine in the field in Fort Drum NY during a weekend exercise. because this was such an excellent product, I'm purchasing another one regardless. I believe I will be more careful with it this time. This camera is perfect for someone who wants to manually focus on their subjects.
Summary: I bought this item for my 18 year old son who likes to take before and after pictures of the vehicles he restores. He loves the camera. He also is able to take video/sound of the engines now as well. The pictures are clear and the video sound is great. It takes his abuse and still works like new. He is very pleased with the camera.
Summary: The camera is great. Works really well, high quality pictures. Easy to operate and has many nice features. The only down is the tripod was a joke, nothing like what is pictured, it is a tabletop tripod very instable and really unuseable.I would have given it 5 stars if the tripod was as appeared.
Summary: Because the product is good, the production is excellent, the price is not too bad, it has many features...durability is okay. It is a brand name but noth withstanding the production attracted me most.
Summary: This is a very good camera and highly recommended for someone who has never used a Digital Camera. The instruction booklet is easy to follow. Also, by the time you learn all the features, you will feel like a Professional photograher. It is easy to use and the photos are nice and clear. The price is reasonable and I like the Fast and Safe delivery. I am very pleased with Overstock.com and I look forward to future purchases.
Summary: When I first turned this camera on, I wasnt ready for the cheap feel it had, but after using it for a few moths now, I am very surprised and I love it! It has all the features I need, It takes a few weeks to really get every option down, but once you do its got an array of useful camera tools. It doesnt seem like it could sustain many accidental drops, but for under $100 the quality pictures it takes, makes it worth every penny!
Summary: This is a GREAT camera. It doesn't come with a lot of written instructions but you can use the disk that comes with it for more help. It's lightweight and has a lot of features, although it is a battery drainer! But OVERALL I really enjoy using it!
