Summary: Just as classic cars have the ability to set a motoring enthusiast's pulse racing, classic cameras are the devilish little items that frequently float my boat. That said, the 'classic' cameras that I own aren't so much 'classic' as 'slightly dated', and sadly spend the majority of their days sat in a drawer somewhere. First introduced in 2004, the Optio S5Z is one of my 'classics' - a dainty little number which measures only 83 x 55 x 22 millimetres.
Pros: Easy to use, decent picture quality, good battery life
Cons: Limited ISO settings, no manual shutter speed
Summary: Ive had it for a few months now. Bought it with a 1GB card and it has performed great. The movies that it records are impressive. They look like a big bulky camcorder shot them, not a pack of smokes sized mini cam. The pics are great as are the many settings and editing features. For the price and the ability to go anywhere as well as the quick turn on and pic snap I give it a 5 out of 5 stars.
Summary: This is my 4th digital camera I've bought to date, and my first Pentax. This camera has exceeded all my expectations. It's easy to use, has a huge screen, and took some great shots. No complaints at all.
