Summary: Bought myself a PENTAX Optio E90 camera - must have been some time last year. I do not just take pictures for fun, I have been into photography some, though would not refer to myself as the ultimate expert yet - just working to get there. My first disappointment with the PENTAX Optio E90 was that, yes, it has all these special function.
Summary: I took this camera on a cycle tour and so it got knocked about a bit but easily withstood the test. It comes on very quickly even when taking it out of the case (a budget special from Amazon). I have big fingers and it was still easy to use. The options are easy to find and select from especially the flash setting. The battery wound down quite quickly if viewing the photos a lot but no more than you would expect.
Summary: Very disappointed with this camera. I purchased it because a Pentax SLR 35mm I used for years was a quality product, not so with this model I'm afraid. Neither the face or smile recognition features worked. So returned it for a refund. Have now uppped the game a bought a Panasonic Lumix FS16 instead. Excellent piece of kit!
Summary: I have purchased several cameras over the years. But I always return to Pentax. Simply because I have found that it actually captures the colours closer than any other I have bought. Some time ago I paid £300 for an Olympus which I had to return because any picture with Purple in it always came out Blue and it was not the only colour that was never true. Even the retailer agreed. The Camera is simple to use small and Quite Honetly very good value.
Summary: I took this camera on holiday recently and used it for the first time. I found it very easy to use, the photos came out very well and were clear. I put duracell batteries in and took about 80 photos and the batteries still have a lot of life left in them. I would definitely recommend this camera.
Summary: Ordered this after reading reviews and I am well pleased with it. Small and precision made, feels solid. Does a lot more than I thought it would. Bought it as a second camera that I could always have with Me and I prefer using it all the time. I would have liked a view finder but I am getting used to it. Remember to buy a SD card at the same time as the internal memory will only store about 3 pictures. I bought the 4 Gb one and it stores loads + Movies.
