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. You'd be amazed what you could do with such a small camera. Perfect picture clarity.
Summary: Don't be fooled by it's 3 star rating. I will say, you NEED to read the book, but you'll be so happy you did. This is a great camera , and I have taken award winning pics with it with ease...I read the book! This Small little guy does the job beautifly and I would recomend it to almost anyone. Only caviat is it can be difficult to see viewing screen in bright light...
The smallest, highest quality digital camera I've owned!

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. Needless to say, I have been SO impressed with this camera! The picture quality is second to none-- I honestly would have guessed the quality of pictures to be taken from a 10 MP camera, not a 7 MP.
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. I prefer pictures without a flash, but even in a well-lit room this camera can't take a single picture without the flash. They ALL turn out blurry.
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: 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. The camera was never even near water and was always in the case when not used (for about 3 days). I was taking a photo of my sleeping husband and son when it happened.
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!
