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. This is the second one that we purchased on recommendation of a friend that failed within a few years of ownership.
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....The second camera went to my other daughter without any "glitches".So, I am somewhat dissatisfied with the overall transaction.
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. I bought this camera because my girlfriend had one. It seemed like something that would be fun to have, and it was, for about a year.
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. Will be purchasing a Canon product as a replacement.
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). It took them 10 weeks to realize they can't fix it and send me a replacement camera. 6 months later the replacement camera broke (same problem). I sent it back to Pentax 6 weeks ago and they still have it.
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. You can write on the photos (times, places, people, things you want to remember about the photo, Etc). There are frames you can put around the pictures. I like the rose frame.
