Sweet little camera

Sylvia Livingston "Joy", Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: It takes good photos, is very compact and easy to carry around in my purse. I wish it had a viewfinder as well as the viewscreen as taking photos when it's sunny becomes a bit of a pig in a poke. It seems that I always have to turn the flash off manually unless I want the camera to decide whether or not to use it; I'd prefer it if I could adjust that. I checked and unchecked "flash on" but it made no difference.

  • Summary: Absolutely LOVE the color (turquoise). The size of the camera is great....small enough for any purse or pocket. I cannot give it the full 5 stars for I have other cameras that actually take better pictures.

Love My Camera! Even has a self timer

Paula fitz, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought the Pentax Optio S1 after reading many reviews on different cameras here. Originally, I purchased a Panasonic Lumix and was disappointed with it so returned it and got this one in an aqua color. I love it! Many years ago I had a similar camera made by Pentax under a generic name (Norcent) and the Pentax Optio S1 had all the features the Norcent had, so I was very familiar with how to work it from day one.

Not very happy with this camera

Daniel E Carberry, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: We have had this camera for almost a year now and are looking to replace it. The picture quality is OK for a compact point and shoot and I like the wide format picture this camera takes. However, it is very difficult to get the camera to focus on what you want which means I have missed many shots. Also, the flash almost always washes out the subject. I generally like the Pentax brand for cameras but would not recommend this one.

Good camera, poor battery life

Tarynnnnn, Amazon

  • Summary: If the battery life were better, this would be 5 stars. The battery only lasts a few hours & when it's not in use the battery still depletes & isn't worth taking on trips.

Amazing quality

booknugget, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: My last digital camera was a Pentax and I loved that as well. After looking at reviews and trying out others, including ones that photographers swore was the only camera for them, I decided to buy a Nikon. I get the $250 Nikon home, and the quality isn't there. I return it, and go back to Pentax. This camera is amazing. It's so small I forget it's in my pocket. It takes incredible pictures.
