Summary: This is a great little camera. Small enough to fit in your pocket but loaded with tons of extras. I would not recommend it for the beginner as it does require some camera and photography knowledge in order to make use of all the technical settings. A really fun camera.
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: I actually order two cameras. I first one did not work out well at all. My daughter said it looked "pretty rough". Also, it did no include the "kit" that went with the item. I have yet to reorder a new one. This was higfhly unfortunate as she lives over 2000 miles away...
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.
