Excerpt: I have tried 3 or 4 different cameras to get the right digital camera - I wanted nice zoom, and clear pictures - with red eye reduction, anti-shake, and great lighting adjustments. I wanted something easily automatic, but I wanted to be able to make some manual adjustments. This camera really does all of that! I LOVE how the lens doesn't stick out when you zoom!
Excerpt: This is a nice little camera with 8 mega-pixels and lots of customizable settings. My only complaint is that it is easy to accidentally switch the camera off: It has a sliding cover for the lens that also acts as the on/off switch and if you put your fingers against the plate with just a bit of pressure, the camera flips off for a moment.
Best digital camera I've ever bought and great price!

Excerpt: I bought this camera because of the high number of megapixels. I have taken a few photography courses, but didn't have the money to buy a really professional camera, but as far as I'm concerned, my pictures are very good quality from this amatuer camera. I have a 2gb memory card in my camera and have it set on the highest number of megapixels and have hundreds of pictures on my card. It is so easy to use and if you want to print, just take your memory card to walmart...
If you get the chance to buy one of these - Grab it...!

Summary: I own two of these cameras and absolutely love them. I bought a third as a gift for my Mom to give as a Mother's Day present. The features are too numerous to name. One of the reasons that I like this camera is that it has a built in flash which doesn't normally come with this type of lower end camera. The only reaso I say "lower end" is because of the price and not the features or ease of use.
Summary: In my younger days, I was a professional photographer. Of course there are cameras for taking superb pictures. Want to hoist around a tripod, perhaps a view camera, an umbrella, interchangeable lenses, lights? Hey, what happened to the landscape or the people or the big game? Changed, or disappeared, or wouldn't behave, or stay still, or game over. And driving in my car, wait, there's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get that special shot, maybe sell it to a newspaper.
Summary: I bought the z10 to carry in my purse. I like its convenience but am not thrilled with the picture quality. Outside shots aren't too bad but inside shots tend to be grainy. I bought mine here on Amazon for less than $100 so the $300+ price tag I am seeing right now is absurd.
Summary: I'm very happy with Pentax products. I had an A10, and I was really happy with it. But I cracked the LCD screen so I just bought another camera. This Z10 was it. It's small, easy to use and good picture quality for my personal purposes. I'd give it 5 stars, but the plastic casing is not as nice as my old A10, but the sliding cover to power on is pretty cool.
Summary: THIS IS MY 4TH PURCHASE OF THIS CAMERA. I HAVE GIVEN IT TO MY TEENAGE GRANDCHILDREN AND THEY LOVE IT, AS DO I. THE EASE TO OPERATE, THE GREAT PICTURE QUALITY, AND THE PRICE MAKE THIS A GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING. JHO, lAWRENCEVILLE, GA.
