Summary: I had a very old Fuji FinePix 2400 for long time. Decided it was time for this grandmother who has thousands of pixs of grandchildren on my pc to upgrade to more megapixal quality. Tried many makes and models for hours. Decided on the Pentax S10 for ease of use. I loved it from day one.
Summary: Great little camera. Small and very easy to carry. Super value for price. Produces outstanding quality pictures. Easy to download pictures onto laptop. Uses SD card for expanded memory. I purchased the camera, two extra batteries and a 4 GB SD card to use on a 10 country european tour.
Summary: This is honestly the best camera that I have ever had. I've owned nothing but Canon's (and a brief stint with a Panasonic) and I love this camera a lot. I got mine at Wal-Mart for $200, but I really like it. It's small, lightweight and I'm so thankful that I don't have to buy batteries anymore.
Summary: My first camera ever was a Pentax, when I was starting college, before the "digital craziness", and I needed a 35mm SLR for the photography course. I bought a used ME super at a cheap price. Later, I went through a few compact digital cameras (Sony and Canon) during the next years.
Excellent photo quality makes this little camera a big winner

Summary: I'm writing this review for the Option S10, which I bought a few weeks ago to replace my Optio S5. The S10 is much better than the S5, which I've had for 3 years and really liked. For some reason Pentax doesn't attract a big following with their consumer mid-range digital cameras.
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. However, you get used to it
Pros: Great Camera for a cheap Price
Cons: No HD video recording, takes ages to take a photo
Excerpt: I got this camera for my birthday in June. It was an upgrade from my Dad of my old Canon one, 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.
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.
Excerpt: When my Optio S4 was destroyed by my god-daughter I was distraught. The camera had been around the world with the wife and I (and bore the battle scars to prove it) and had never let us down, producing superb quality photos that the small size didn't seem to offer.
Pros: It's tiny and takes MINDBLOWING photos
Cons: Not available everywhere yet as it's too new !
