Summary: Excellent outdoors picture quality, poor indoors use. Pictures taken with flash indoors turn out grainy or distorted. Warranty poor. I just bought the new CANON POWER SHOT SX200IS. GREAT GREAT GREAT You just can't mess up the pictures. Wonderful ease of use.
Summary: I bought this camera because of the size, price, and the way the lense worked. I used it for a while before leaving my review. I am so disappointed with the quality of picture coming from this camera. I tried to take some pictures indoors with and without flash. They were grainy looking. My daughter used a Kodak camera at the same event and her pics were fantastic.
Summary: I love pentax. With my previous pocket pentax (optio 550) had amazing pictures, but the promising Z10 was a bad bet, which I regret. If you are looking for a large zoom, get the panasonic lumix.
Summary: I bought this camera from a saleswoman who really sounded like she knew what she was talking about. She said that it was simply the best point and shoot camera on the market. I bought the storyline and made the purchase without going to other stores, professionals, or reading online reviews. I thought the functionality of the camera was wonderful. However, when I printed out the pictures all of the indoor ones looked extremely grainy.
If you like picture noise, buy the Pentax Optio Z10

Summary: This camera has speed settings from ISO 64 to 3200. Of these, only 64 and 100 are acceptable. In bright scenes you will get a picture with good detail and color and a small amount of noise. Even at these low settings, a slightly magnified image will show noise as a speckling in the image. I made a mistake buying this camera - somehow misunderstanding its characteristics before I bought it.
