Has inherent "Battery Depleted" problem. Effectively useless.

Jam, Amazon
1 March 2011
  • Summary: My friend let me borrow her Pentax S40. I used it for about 10 minutes on a fresh set of alkaline AA batteries. Then upon starting it up I got a "Battery Depleted" message on the LCD and then it shut off after about 1-2 seconds. I tried switching to other brand new batteries with the same results.

  • Summary: The picture quality of this camera is average. It has a variety of different mode settings which work pretty good. It also has a self-timer which I have found very useful. However, there are a lot of things I don't like about it.

This is not a good camera

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 August 2007
  • Summary: We bought this camera 1-1/2 years ago. It was being discontinued and we got it for what we thought was a good deal. We very quickly learned that the pictures come out very dark, sometime almost black. Not just indoors either, pictures taken outside are very dark too.

  • Summary: I was given this camera as a gift and it has been a really reliable camera. It takes very good pictures and has functions that are helpful. It takes pretty good movies as well. The fact that it uses SD memory cards is good being that SD memory is cheap. I bought a and that has worked very well.
