Summary: Camera worked OK at first, then stopped working. We got a new battery, still no power. I plugged it into a correct voltage charger, still nothing. The camera had not been dropped, has always been kept in a padded case when we travel, etc. I will never buy a Pentax product again.
Summary: This camera has better features than the pictures that it takes. Dont be fooled by this. The sleek neat feel of the camera ia a good selling point. It is one of the cleverest models that I have seen, but I would never buy one again, or purchase another item from pentax.
Summary: This camera has been sent back to Pentax twice because the lens froze and camera did not function. That problem was repaired. Now it does not hold memory properly. I have lost pictures. Pentax will not fix it. I have just put it in the hazardous material pile to take to the dump.
Stay away from Pentax cameras - bad products - service even worse

Summary: Camera offers great features and high quality pictures; however, it is poorly built and won't last very long. I purchased mine in 8/06. By December it was broken (lens mechanism ceased) and had to be shipped to Pentax for repair (on my dime).
Summary: I like this camera. After spending a little time and tweaking some of the settings, I am satisfied. The photos I have are sharp and clear. The videos are good enough for a digital camera. Watching the videos on tv are a hoot! I like the large screen, bright and vibrant! Editting photos is fun.
Summary: Personally, I like most all of the Pentax camers. I've had a few before this one, and they all functioned great. Teh Optio T20 is awesome with its toutch screen, great quality in it's pictures too. The T20 has decent functions in its menus, although it could use maybe a little more.
Summary: I own the Pentax T20 and the Sony N1. Compare the two, and there is no doubt that the Optio T20 is much more superior. The T20 wins on several things: Price, Picture Quality, Ease of Use, and the overall feel/look of the camera.
Nice camera, but needs an optical viewfinder-- Final judgement... Keep looking

Summary: For the price, I could love this camera if it just had an optical viewfinder. If you can get around that I think you could like it too, but in the end it may frustrate you a little too much. There is enough I like to give Pentax 3 stars for trying hard at a small price.
Summary: This camera has a serious design flaw. Do not buy this camera if you are planning to use it outdoors in sun light, because you cannot see anything in the view finder. If you have the sun behind you, the sun light makes the view finder appear like a mirror, so instead of looking at the object, you...
