Summary: Very pleased with the quality, value, and service. I received a quality product with extras, cheaper, and faster shipping then previously experienced on ebay. I'm sold on Amazon.com for its quality of sellers, and will definately purchase from this seller again without hesitation. Thanks for the great experience.
Summary: I realize that probably no one is going to read this review due to the fact that the Optio MX is now considered to be out-dated. With the new absurd mega pixel monsters on the market, which by the way is just a marketing ploy and really has nothing to do with quality, I'm sure that not many of you are interested in this updated review. But here it goes... The Optio MX was a camera that was ahead of it's time! We've had this camera for over 2 years now.
Summary: I've had my Pentax Optio MX4 for two years and I can't think of a single thing that I'd change. I've used other digital cameras - HP and Sony - and this is by far the best point and shoot I've ever used. I take hundreds of shots every month and the picture quality is exception.
Summary: Have been using MX4 for 3 months now. I have a couple other digital cameras (Kodak and Canon) . The MX4 has the most features. Several thing I especially like: 10x optical zoom, 0mm close-up, manual aperture/shutter support, movable LCD screen. Cons: MPEG4 video is not smooth and the autofocus is slow. The video format is Quicktime. I wish it uses Divx format, so I can play the videos on Divx DVD players (e.g. Philips 642). In program mode, the photo is a little dark.
Summary: I bought this recently because of the good reviews on here so far and I must say I'm not disappointed. It looked quite big when I viewed the picture but trust me this baby is so tiny and looks really cute. It's very easy to use and much better if you buy a lets say 1GB SD card since you can record longer, obviously and take more pics but like the previous reviewer said, you can by a multimedia storage and store them in it if you're on holiday.
Summary: I bought this camera a month ago and it really serve its purpose. with a camera like this, what more can u ask for? it has a 10x optical zoom and a 10x digital zoom which u can adjust and a digital camera & video camra in one! this is my first digital camera and i think i really made a good deal buying this.
Summary: I HAVE SEVERAL DIFFERENT CAMERAS INCLUDING THE SANYO-FISHER CAMERACORDER FVD-C1 WHICH COSTS $750 BUT THIS MX4 TAKES VIDEO JUST AS GOOD @ 640X480 WITH 30 FPS AND EVEN BETTER PICS @ 4MP COMPARED TO 3.2 ON THE FISHER! AND I PAID LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE! THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST VALUE DIGITAL STILL/VIDEO CAMERA ON THE MARKET, THE VIDEO LOOKS ALMOST AS GOOD AS MINI DV AND THE STILLS ARE ALMOST AS GOOD AS MY MINOLTA DIMAGE 7i, ALL I CAN SAY IS YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS...
best buy in 4mp digital camera with 640x480 30fps video
