Summary: Purchased this product in december 2006. It took great pictures and was very user friendlly. Intially I was very satisfied. In November 2007 I started having problems with the camera making clicking noises when the lens opened and the images in the LCD were out of focus. Took it to one of Pentax's repair shops in January 2008 we were told lens needed to be replaced and this was a common problem with this brand of camera.
Summary: I'm a student in a design program, and I needed a high quality camera at a low cost. This camera is perfect. The features, the quality, and product is exactly what I was looking for and it takes my already good photography skills to a new level. It makes taking good pictures easy!
Summary: For the most part, I really like this camera. The only problem I have incured is that the battery does not last an entire day, and I had trouble finding the battery in stores to have a back-up.
Summary: Recently I took a picture for a friend with a camera like this and was convinced I needed to upgrade my LOW resolution digital camera with something better. This camera is very compact, easy to use, has lots of features, and the LCD is BIG. The 1G card is a plus with the package as well as the tripod, carrying case, and cleaning supplies. Overall it is a great investment. I take pictures to display on my website and this works very well!
