Summary: I have had this camera for over a year now, it is amazing in all aspects apart from the HD recording ad the fact it is difficult to get the camera to actually take a photo seeing as you have to press the button in various ways.
Pros: Great Camera for a cheap Price
Cons: No HD video recording, takes ages to take a photo
Summary: I purchased the Pentax digital camera as an upgrade of my old camera and it was a major step. The main feature of this product is the 10 mega pixels and divx recording capabilities which makes the fie size smaller and reduces battery consumption during recording and playback. The zoom feature is typical for compact cameras as they can only do 3x zoom with the mechanical lens and 4x at digital zoom which decreases clarity.
Pros: very high quality images, handle low light scenes well. easy to use, shake reduction, divx video.
Summary: We got the Pentax camera from Jessops after breaking our old one on holiday, first seemed very good, nice and compact with a large screen, 10mpx takes good quality photos. being only 2cm thick it fits easily into your pocket and doesnt feel much bigger than a mobile phone, the build quality is brilliant, feels very sturdy and for around the £100 mark, definitely feels like a camera from the higher end of the market.
Excerpt: "...because "I've always told you Pentax are thebest ! " It has 10 megapixels and takes amazing photos! You can choose which quality you want to take you pictures and videos in. Theres different modes; automatic, pet mode, landscape etc. My favourite is the pet mode. It even asks you whether its a cat or a dog and them what colour their fur is! If you zoom right in you lose a little of the picture quality, but thats to be expected, its not a DSLR after ...
Pros: Fantastic picture quality, everything you'd expect and more
Excerpt: "I was given the Pentax Optio S10 as a birthday present 2 months ago to replace my film camera and quite honestly I was convinced I would hate it and thought it was far too small and would be fiddly and not take photos as good as my SLR. Well I have to say I've been made to eat my words, Firstly the quality of the pictures is totally amazing, very crisp and clear, even when printed at A4 size they don't lose any clarity. The display screen is much ...
Summary: Very small and compact - can fit in your pocket easily. Menu is pretty easy to navigate.
Pros: Size. Large screen. Not too complicated. Instruction manual is good. Can take quite good pics once you get the settings right.
Cons: Size can take some getting use to as the lens is very close to the side and you have to work out how to hold it without having a finger in your shot. Takes some practice to get good shots - they can look good on the screen, but when you download them they're a bit blurry. Hopefully this is more the user's fault than the camera's. Can take a while for it to focus and take the picture, quite annoying with moving subjects. Screen is really hard to see in bright sunlight.
