  • Summary: yes, i must say, after reading loads of reviews, Ithought i got a bargain but definitely not a very good camera, unless am really doing something wrong.

Not as good as they were 20 years ago, they have never cut it with digital

  • Summary: Not good at all. In the past Pentax were one of the big four of quality cameras, they being Nikon, Pentax, Olympus and Canon. A few years ago I bought a digital Pentax and it was flimsy and broke within a short time.

Terrible camera

  • Summary: This item was not worth 50p. It took a worse pic than my mobile phone, was slower at doing it, and was awkward to handle if you have hands larger than a 4 year old girls! I followed every instruction, but the pictures stayed grainy and extremely poor throughout, even when set to a 12 megapixel tiff!
