Great compact camera!

  • Summary: I purchased this camera to have in my purse when I am out and about. It isn't logical for me to lug around my big Sony, so I wanted a camera with easy to use features that was not going to feel like a piece of junk. I have a 35mm Pentax camera that I absolutely love, so I decided on the Optio M30. This camera feels solid, despite it's tiny size. the LCD screen on the back is very clear and easy to see.

Easiest camera I've used, but beware

  • Summary: This camera takes good pictures flawlessly, but if you want instant feedback as to your photo-taking ability, this might not be the camera for you. Plainly, the screen, which also is the lone viewfinder, is not very bright. If you're taking photos outdoors, forget about reviewing your efforts until you get indoors. Even then, the screen resolution is so low that it will not give you accurate feedback.

  • Summary: I'VE HAD THIS FOR OVER A YEAR NOW AND LOVE IT. I GOT MY WIFE A CANON SD1000 AND FOUND THE MENU ON THE PENTAX EASIER TO NAVIGATE. TAKES GREAT PICTURES. ALOT OF PICTURE OPTIONS. BE SURE TO GET THE CORRECT SD CARD FOR RAPID SHOOTING. LOW LIGHT IS ALWAYS A PROMLEM WITH ANY DIGITAL CAMERA OR AT LEAST IN THIS PRICE RANGE MAYBE. NICE LOOKING CAMERA. RECOMMEND FOR EASE OF USE, PICTURE QUALITY, FEATURES AND PRICE.

Cute complete Camera

  • Summary: I like the speed, quality of the picture. I can carry in my shirt pocket. It is fully automatic, and can be manually controlled as well. Great macro. I wish battery lasted a bit longer, and easier to charge. Maybe there is a way to charge with computer, I got to study. Overall, I am very happy with it.

Camera great. Kit a waste. Memory card faulty

Overstock

  • Summary: The camera is fabulous. I do miss the view finder but few digis have it anymore. That is a problem when sun is glaring on the view screen. The bonus stuff was a waste. The memory card didn't work. Had to go buy another one. The rest of the kit was not very useful except, maybe, the tiny tripod.

  • Summary: Recently purchased camera for my daughter, simple to use without reading instructions, picture quality good, large screen, probably as good as kodak z710 recently purchased for twice as much, and has more features. Very small also.
