Summary: I bought this camera sight unseen. I liked the look and the fact that it had just hit the market, figuring it would have the ability to take a good picture was a given. I Do not consider megapixels much when considering cameras, so the fact that the I-10 had 12 megapixels does not mean much or figured into my decision to buy this camera. I just want a smooth looking picture from a camera that fits in my pocket. The I-10 is small so fitting into the pocket is easy.
Excerpt: no CA's, up to 200 ISO ok, good weather mini cam 8x10"photos at once printable if you'll print posters, sharpen it, intensify contrast and color saturation by PhSh f.e. very nice macro's ps.in menue you can find FILTERS, item 'more contrast' (second level)will intensify sharpness after shooting, too.
Excerpt: I bought this small i10 at 70 e and I've discovered its strengths: You can use it with best results (12MP with 2,3"sensor) with highest resolution when *sun is shining *wide angle or normal focus *80-200 ISO great advantage: nearly no CA's After shooting intesify contrast,colors and sharpness strongly (by Photoshop f.e.) Under these conditions: very sharp posters until 15x20" inches are possible love it very much (if you realise these advices, let your bridge at home.
Summary: I purchased this on Amazon for $34 as a used item, and it turned out to be fantastic! If you can find a price even close to that, buy it. I was just looking for a simple point and shoot as I have plenty of great lenses for my Pentax K-5, K-30, and K-01, but for the price this camera is phenomenal! Love it so far!
Summary: I bought this camera new as an impulse buy to replace an old HP one. I have used Pentax cameras almost exclusively since the early 1970s so felt attracted to it, especially as I do have a Pentax 110 SLR which sadly I do not use as it has the same problem as this digital replica. The photos look as if they are taken through a plate of jelly!
Loved the look and form factor; the images, not so much

Summary: Wow, I wanted to love this camera ... the aesthetics/design got me as soon as I saw the first images released back in January. I have enough old Pentaxes (including an Auto 110 Super) to really appreciate the retro look, styling and old-style logo. The form factor was actually quite nice, with a good balance, small but really nice right-hand grip, and a pleasant grippy texture. It was a bit light (plasticky) for its size.
Summary: This is a replacement for my previous camera I dropped in the river. I love this little camera. Produces great pictures, pretty easy to use and the zoom is great. This is why I purchased the same camera to replace the one I dropped in the river.
