Summary: I ordered this camera on 6/6 and have never recieved the product!!! Today is 7/11. I sent several e-mail's to the seller and I kept recieving notice that the e-mail was waiting to be delivered, for over 2 WEEKS!!! You can bet, whoever the seller is, CHARGED MY CC# within minutes of my purchase. This is the second time I have purchased something from AMAZON.COM and not recieved the product.
Summary: I bought this camera for my mom for Christmas and have had nothing but problems with it. I am saddened that Pentax, a name I normally trust, would create such a piece of junk. It will drain the batteries in minutes, without a memory card it will hold a whopping 1 picture on it's own, and it has trouble comming on when you change the batteries or take out the memory card. It's like it needs to re-boot itself for 15 minutes. I don't advise anyone to purchase it.
Summary: The camera takes very good pictures and movies. Unfortunately I owned it for about a month before the LCD display cracked. Pentax considers cracked displays a non-warranty repair and the repair costs more than the new camera. Considering the camera wasn't dropped or abused, I was very disappointed. This is my 4th digital camera. I have also owned several PDAs. I've never had a problem with a cracked display or any other mechanical failure until now.
Summary: I bought the M50 a few weeks ago new...got a lemon...wouldn't focus, and the colors weren't anywhere near true! It happens. I sent it back to Pentax under warrantee, on my dime, with a detailed description of the camera's problems, fully expecting them to make it right. I got it back a few days ago and they didn't do a thing to the camera!! Nothing was fixed even though they sent a report with the camera saying it was!
