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.
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.
Summary: This camera takes amazingly detailed photographs. The chrome body is nice to look at and feels nice in my hands. It has a surprising assortment of features for a camera that's smaller than a pack of cigarettes and nearly the same weight--with battery and SDHC card, it weighs less than 5 ounces. I purchased the optional remote control, which works perfectly. The remote operation even gives two modes: instant or three-second delay.
Summary: Purchased this because my SO "burned" our canon of over 5 years old. Needed something quick for her to use at her work. found this at a decent price. We have taken several pic. with it since. Have not had any pics "developed" yet but that will be happening soon. So far good camera, great price.
Summary: I took a picture of a duck that was moving on the water and the picture looks very clear, the colors, everything is awesome... I haven't try the videos yet but I guess it takes good videos tho.
