Summary: for the price this camera is well worth it. However, I am of the opinion Pentax no longer manufactures this model and as been replaced by Optio VS 20 which I also own and it is also a great purchase
Summary: This is a nice camera with lots of features. I gave it a four because I'm having trouble setting up the transfer to my computer. It's not plug and play like I expected and I'm not a nerd but that's not really the camera's fault. Takes great pictures and the zoom is really good to have
Summary: Camera was on backorder since July 29, 2013. Seller did stay in contact with us. He finally cancelled order since he could not get cameras in to fufill order. He tried to make order right but it just did not work out. Will try again later but hope he has the correct price listed this time.
Summary: This is my third small Pentax Optio, and the first of the RZ=18 series. It worked fine until the day I needed it and when pushing the "on" button, all I got were several beeps and the camera turned off. Same with batteries from my other Pentaxes.
