Summary: I bought this camera for the great zoom. Upon receiving it felt very light-weight and plastic. I turned it on once and everything seemed to be fine, but upon a second boot the display was covered in lines and would flicker on and off depending up on the angle that the camera was held at.
Summary: Really liked the camera, and it took good pictures with lots of settings, but only after 7 months of casual use, we started having problems with the worst being, it always shuts down after trying to use the zoom option. Very disappointed and will be not buying another Pentax product for some time
Summary: I got this camera as a Father's Day present. Pentax has had a great reputation in the past, so I thought that they still performed like they used to. Alas, this is not the case. Everything was great for about three weeks and then the camera would shut down immediately after turning it on.
Summary: The Pentax RZ-18, just does not make it. The first shock is the battery charger is huge, no little plug-in like the Canon system. Second, camera feels very cheaply made, 95% plastic feel. But the deal killer is pictures!
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Commandé pour mon Pentax optio WG-1 Les batteries ne font pas fonctionner l'appareil ! peut être problème d’ampérage ou autre... mais elle ne sont pas compatible ! Nul ! Attention ne tombé pas dans le panneaux !! A part du Pentax faut pas prendre cet référence !
Summary: Cette batterie ne fonctionne pas pour un pentax wg3 j'ai rechargé celle-ci directement dans l'appareil via la prise usb et mon pc, le voyant clignote bien jusqu'à la fin de la recharge. une fois rechargée impossible d'allumer mon appareil!
