Terrible picture quality, fell apart quickly, died completely.

  • Summary: I got this camera new a year and a half ago. At first I was pleased with the pictures I took outside with sunlight. Then I tried taking them indoors, or at low light points of the day and was majorly disappointed. Just beyond the starter warranty it came with, 6 months I think, the cover for the battery and memory card snapped off. I didn't drop it, I just took the battery out and that was it.

  • Summary: There is a great Green button function which allows you to easily change the lighting, sensitivity, ISO and pixel size with a visual of the difference, this makes it very easy to customise the shots and keep the initiative, using this function I have had a lot of success with low light shots, which others seem to have had difficulty with . I love it. I am not bothered by the finish of the camera, its fine I agree with the C net review. Its deffinitely worth the money.
  • Pros: its' very light and easy to use.

Let down by poor build quality

  • Summary: When I first got the camera I was seduced by the fantastic zoom, the niggle I had about the general feel and build quality of the camera was put to one side. After a few weeks of light use however my initial worries came back to haunt me. The camera wouldn't turn on properly, the lens would come out part way then the camera would turn off and the lens would instantly retract. I sent the camera back to the manufacturer under warranty and their response has been very poor.

Pentax, excellent as usual

Gill D., Amazon
8 August 2012
  • Summary: I already had a Pentax in the past, so I wanted to upgrade to a more modern one. For the price I bought it (about £110 if I remember), it has a spectacular zoom and the pictures are incredibly still even at night outside or with moving subjects. The videos are OK, altough they seem me too small to be HD, possibly I didn't get the settings right. The time for recording data and showing the picture on screen is really short, so I'm happy with its response speed.

Great Camera

Mr. S. Duncan, Amazon
11 May 2012
  • Summary: 16 Megapixels, 18 x Optical zoom, HD Movie & other good features for under £120 ?? yes I would say it is great value for your money. Not the most stylish camera on the market & yes it has a plastic case, does not have GPS, plays songs, or have voice recognition !!!. What it does do though is take good quality photo's & is very easy to use.

The worst camera purchase of my life.

Chaddy1, Amazon
24 April 2012
  • Summary: The Pentax Optio RZ18 Digital Camera - Orange (16MP, 18 x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD Screen, is sadly the most unfriendly camera I have ever purchased. The menu options are ridiculous - far too many - totally over the top! Not a point and shoot camera for pocket use. Digital electronics gone mad. My old Fuji 2GB camera gives far better, clearer pictures with less faffing about.

Great Camera

Wallace Lee, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: Great camera with lots of value at $179.00. I had concerns after reading internet reviews that it wasn't solidly made but with a flimsy and cheap plastic case and that it was a big camera. While it is bigger than most point-and-shoot digital cameras, because the hard plastic casing was made with a lighter material, it is extremely light-weight for the size. This was a wonderful surprise because I thought larger was heavier, especially with a 18X optical zoom.
