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've had this camera for a few weeks now. I haven't taken loads of pictures, but I've taken enough to see that the image quality is lacking. I have some outdoor shots that look nice. But indoor shots all seem blurry, fuzzy, lacking in crispness, whether with flash or without Having only paid about $100 for this, this may be a camera I give to my 11 year old. Was really hopeful, as I love the size/weight combination.
Summary: I expected a little more from Pentax. This was a $250 camera when it was released and the price dropped to less than $100 in around a year. This is not a bad camera but it is not worth $250. For the price I paid I'm satisfied, it is about the same quality as a Casio with similar specs but looks nicer. The quality of pictures and video is very decent, nothing more.
Summary: The camera is actually very tiny, it's probably smaller than the Canon powershots which was a bit disappointing. The camera is almost entirely plastic and has a cheap feel to it. It's very light compared to my Canon which has an metal body. Mine actually arrived with two dead pixels which was very annoying so it made the playback quite difficult considering it's already a small screen. I returned it and I'm hoping the new one I receive doesn't have any dead pixels.
Excerpt: This camera was bought to my sister as a present, but she got another compact that she liked better so it was given back to me barely used. I used it only for some small projects around the house and for a canoe-trip where I didn't want to bring my K-5, simply where I need a cheap camera that I don't have to be careful with.
Pros: Works with Pentax IR-remote, Auto 110 homage
Cons: No unique features, IQ only usable for social media
Summary: A cheap little pocket camera that is pleasing on the eye and does what it says on the tin....to an acceptable quality. If it gets damaged you wont be too upset so youu can happily throw it in your bag. For serious images with good quality i have seen better. Yes it does the job.
Summary: I was after a small compact camera I could take around with me where I wouldn't want my larger camera. After reading a few reviews that said the picture quality wasn't great but a lot of others saying it was fine I was swayed. The looks grabbed me- don't be fooled though. Even though I wasn't expecting anything special I really couldn't believe what I was seeing. Picture quality is at best passable, most of the time blurred and out of focus.
Summary: The camara works well once you get used to the settings. The software supplied is a different matter. I could not get it to install properly on my laptop running Windows 7. I had several coversations with both Arcsoft and Pentax Photo Engineer via email and carried out several things they suggested but none were successful.I installed the program on my old P.C.running Windows XP and it seamed to load O.K.
If you are buying this camera for its look you won't be disappointed

Summary: I bought this camera because it looks good. Far cheaper that the Olympus Pen and a lot smaller, it is my throw in my bag camera and really it can't do much more than take a basic snap or 2. It is small and stylish but unfortunately it comes only with a wrist strap and not the neck strap as seen in the video. If you are also looking for a good camera you may have to look further a field.
