Best little camera

Joan French "world traveller", Amazon
1 July 2009
  • Summary: This Pentex was my first digital camera. I used it exclusively through a European trip and was extremely happy with the results of all my photos. I always carry 2 batteries with me, both charged fully, since I take pictures of everything now.

The smallest, highest quality digital camera I've owned!

Miss Jetsetter, Amazon
19 January 2008
  • Summary: I decided to buy this after comparing all of the other ultra-compact digital cameras, and found this was the smallest one. My boyfriend also had the S5 version, and absolutely loved his-- he has sworn never to buy another brand other than Pentax.

Awful camera

L. Nay "Mommy2Joshua", Amazon
11 January 2008
  • Summary: My husband bought this camera for me for Mother's Day last year. We just had our first child and wanted something real small to fit in the diaper bag. Being small is pretty much its only good feature. My husband and I are so so disappointed in this camera.

  • Summary: Bought this camera to take pics of my new son. Had the camera a couple of days and the lens stopped retracting. Sent it in (under warranty of course). Pentax told me it wasn't working because it got wet.

OK basic, point-and-shoot pocket camera - but buy an extra battery

Nick Damato, Amazon
31 December 2006
  • Summary: I bought one of these slightly used, because I got a great deal on it and wanted a small camera that would easily fit in a shirt pocket or on a belt without being cumbersome. It was in very good shape, there was not a scratch on it.

Not Worth It

R. Massey, Amazon
15 December 2006
  • Summary: I had owned the Optio S4, and it was a great camera. So when the Optio S4 went, I thought I would upgrade to the Optio S6. What a mistake. I should have researched more. Quite simply, 2 out of every 3 pictures is out of focus.

The Optio S4 was MUCH better...

A. Barnett "Jazzy", Amazon
2 September 2006
  • Summary: I have both an Optio S4 & an Optio S6. I spend most of my time out at night. Concerts, clubs, raves, etc. The Optio S4 took AMAZING low light & night setting photos. The Optio S6 fails miserably at them.

S6 - small & beautiful

Joost, Amazon
11 August 2006
  • Summary: I have to admit I bought this camera purely based on various internet reviews. Started experimenting with it and was utterly impressed & amazed. In '98 I obtained a Canon S20 which still works and served me just right. Price back then: about one thousand (!) Euros.
