Summary: A friend bought this camera for me almost 7 years ago. Recently, I dropped it and am so upset with myself for being clumsy. I really love this camera. The quality is great; it is easy to handle, and the battery life is great as well, in additon, the download is a piece of cake. I will definitely purchae future items by Pentax. Best camera I have ever owned!!
Summary: I purchased this Pentax a few years ago and it's time to get something off my chest - ITS DRIVING ME NUTS. I have a Canon and it's fine. I can't complain about the image quality, it's fine for the price. The thing I don't like is that it creates a new folder every day you use it and then proceeds to name each picture from the start in that folder. If you open another folder you'll notice that the pictures are named the same way.
Summary: We have a Pentax Optio 7.0 MP camera that we love. When we saw the Pentax Optio 7.1 and the price that it was being sold for, we had to get it. We gave this camera as a graduation gift. Pentax has some of the best point and shoot camera's around. You don't need a college education to operate it. Just take it out of the box, put the batteries in, and you are ready to take some great pictures.
Good Point and Shoot if you get for the right price

Summary: I shopped this around and got it for around $80 with a 2gb SD card. At that price, this camera is a good deal. I wanted a shirt pocket-sized camera for landscape and posed shots with friends, and that's what this is. Some of my shots came out absolutely terrifically, fit for printing. I would not recommend it even for a toss-in-the-purse camera if, for instance, you want to get shots of your kids on the playground.
