Excerpt: I've always liked the Optio line of cameras. Pentax uses top quality lenses for them, ensuring that you get crisp, clear images that look good even when blown up. The camera has a moderate set of features, and they are laid out in an easy to use interface. If you are looking for advanced features, this camera is not for you. One thing I love about Optios is that they are extremely durable.
Excerpt: My husband bought me this camera after my sony one was dunked in the toilet by my three year old. I was unsure of it at first because i was always one to go for what i thought was a well known brand. I tried the camera and went and had some pictures printed off and was floored they came out so well. the camera had more megapixals than my last camera and was so much clearer with the pictures.
Summary: I bought this for myself to replace an older digital and this one "rocks". I've had it now for approx. a year and my granddaugther just had to have one like it. Just bought one for her--only way she would considering allowing me to keep mine. Happy Birthday Ashley!!!
Summary: I love this new camera. I heard about in my American Photography magazine and haven't been disappointed. The LCD screen is nice and big, much bigger than my past camera. I love the sick blue color, it rocks and it's very original.
Summary: My best friend recommended this camera to me and I have to say that it is the BEST CAMERA EVER!!! I love the "smile capture" feature - it works great. The in camera red-eye reduction feature is awesome, I was shocked it actually worked! I can't say enough wonderful things about this camera. It is small so I can carry it everywhere. The battery life is amazing and the pictures are clear and bright.
Summary: This was a Christmas present for my 20 something year old daughter. I did my research & this seemed to be everything she would want & more. The rechargable litium-ion battery was a huge factor. This little camera does more than an average user would ever need but it is great to have the options. My daughter is very pleased with the camera and all I have heard so far are good things about it. Time will tell as far as longivity goes.
Summary: It's small and very light so you can take it anywhere. Icons that are fun and easy to use. Takes great pictures. I love the soft flash mode, the warm skin tone mode and the rechargeable battery. The only thing is that I got it in pink, great color, but my little granddaughter thinks it's her toy!
