Camera works well but very fragile

CATO, Amazon
4 February 2013
  • Summary: Camera works well with photos almost as good as my film camera. However it is very fragile and the screem broke when it was bumped rendering it useless. It was less expensive to replace than to repair. I would recommend it only if it is to be used indoors due to the weak nature of its screen.

Pentax Optio M20 Used and still usable

Dale Eberhardt, Amazon
15 May 2012
  • Summary: This camera replaces one of the same model that I used a few years, for over 10,000 images. I especially like the macro feature for flowers. Options for sensitivity and for pixel count are good. Size and weight make it easy to carry in a pocket.

Small but mighty

tklong, Ebay
23 November 2011
  • Summary: I have purchased three of these cameras---one for myself, my husband, and a friend. Mine has been on three European trips, and has given me excellent quality photos with a minimum of fuss. Compact yet full of features, it is a great take-anywhere camera.

worst purchase I ever made

Anita Penn, Amazon
6 November 2010
  • Summary: I have no idea why the reviews on this camera are so good. I have owned 3 Pentax cameras and loved them all so from the moment I got this camera I could not believe how fuzzy/blurry the pictures were and how washed out the color was. I thought perhaps I was spoiled by my Pentax SLR camera. (I bought this camera to carry around in my purse or for international travel so that I wouldn't have to lug my big 'ol good camera around and worry about it getting stolen.

Died as soon as warranty was over

Richard Shannon, Amazon
26 July 2010
  • Summary: I had this camera for one year. The shutter button fell off while my son was getting married. No more photos for me! When I got home I looked up the warranty. It ran out about 1 day after the camera broke. So I checked out the service centers that Pentax offered for repairs. When I contacted the one nearest me, they said the flat rate to fix the camera was almost exactly the same amount as I had paid to buy it new.

Not good enough in 2010

Vishnu Vijayaraghavan "states of being", Amazon
19 March 2010
  • Summary: In the hunt for a cheap point and shoot, based on the stellar reviews in Amazon I bought the Pentax M20. After buying the camera and using it for a little while, I realized that what might have been good in 2006 is not necessarily good in 2010. The good: 1. Compact 2. Accepts SDHC 3. Lots of different scenes and modes 4. 640x480 video 5. Program mode provides decent manual control over exposure 6.

Never received camera

John Schietroma, Amazon
30 December 2009
  • Summary: The camera was ordered through Reiger Store and returned to the store because of a wrong address on the package. I emailed Reiger Store twice and confirmed that I had given them the proper address. They have not gotten back to me.
