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.
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: I just finished a 2 week vacation with this camera and was very happy with it. 8MP is plenty for the type of photography I do. The 7x zoom matches my old Olympus 320, and is very handy. I do miss the viewfinder since using the screen outside is really hard. You kind of have to look for bright parts in the scene and try to find them on the screen and then "guess" on composition since you really can't see any details, or much more than light and dark.
Summary: I really like this little camera. It's great for carrying in a pocket and having at a moment's notice. I love the way it works, sliding open the lens cover to turn on, zooming with no lens protruding. I would say the camera was perfect except that it's photos are not quite as vivid as a heavier Kodak that I carry to special events, but cannot put in my pocket. The rechargeable battery is a very nice accessory, and a cost saver.
Summary: This is a pretty nice camera. It doesn't have a lot of built-in memory but I got an SD card to make up for the lack. The quality of the pictures is pretty good and it takes moving pictures surprisingly well. All in all, I'm happy with it.
Summary: I was amazed at how many features this camera has! I love that it has a slim design. There are so many great shooting modes! And Photo editing features built right into the camera! The only downside to the camera that I've noticed so far is that it doesn't take night time pictures very well, or record night time video well. I would highly recommend this camera !
Summary: This is a great camera for everyday needs. I bought this camera a couple months ago and I was so pleased with my purchase that I bought another one for my mother (her first digital camera). I chose this camera because of how easy it is to use. The menus are easy to navigate and you can do almost anything on this camera by just pressing a single button (throw away pictures, review pictures, etc.).
Summary: This replaced an earlier purchase of a Z10 that I managed to destroy in an embarrassing way with the same model. I looked at a few others but no other camera in this size range has the same long zoom while maintaining the slender body. I enjoy the added focal length because I often find myself at a distance from my subject. The 30 bit pictures have a great dynamic range and are noise free below 400ASA with good lighting.
