4-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware -- Warranty does not cover "liquid" damages
It states clearly in the warranty policy that liquid damages are not covered.Therefore, the waterproof nature of this camera is disclaimed and not coveredby the 12-month manufacturer warranty.It seems from the failure rate of users ~20%, that this product is quite a gamble without an additional warranty.
4-0 out of 5 stars Annual "Waterproofing".
The W10 (and W20, 7MP) is/are waterproof as indicated by Pentax.
5-0 out of 5 stars super tough, hard to complain
i've had last years model (just like this except 5mp) for about a year and i can tell you one thing, it's tough!

4-0 out of 5 stars Incorrect Product Description
The camera itself makes me quite happy.Unfortunately the Pentax 18-55mm f/3.5 - 5.6 lens described above (1 inch / 4.9 ounces) does not (as far as I can see) exist.Instead Amazon ships the standard Pentax 18-55mm f/3.5 - 5.6 kit lens... not bad but it can hardly be described as "hardly protrud[ing] from the camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it
I own a pentax zx 30 35 mm camera with a 28mm-210mm lens on it. I was shopping a while for a digital camera, bought the canon powershot a620.But sold it after 4 weeks, I feel more natural with a SLR style than the point and shoot camera.Finally after much research, landed on this one, knowing very well that there are superior cameras out there in the market.And I never needed a camera in 8MP - 10MP range. 4 MP - 6MP is all (my opinion) one needs for prints of 4 x 6 sizes.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great camera - BE CAREFUL with legacy K-mount lenses
Great camera...good quality pictures... easy to use... all of these are true of the K100D.

2-0 out of 5 stars Looks good, feels good, but quality, totally unreliable
I may have a camera that is defective, but i found that this camera can only take a crisp photo in excellent OUTDOOR only light conditions. But even then after a while, only ever 4th picture would come out. I am a true lover of the self portrait, but every time you try, the people in this close up come out black, and the back senery comes out great... This could just be my own loss in skills, but i dont think so since my last Casio 5MP, did not have this problem, even though it also had a pentax lens.
4-0 out of 5 stars Firmware 1.01 update fixed the lag time
Just picked up my Pentax A10 at Costco a couple of day ago and here's my thoughts.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great Travel Camera!!
My Pentax Optio S died in Sapporo and I didn't have time or inclination for a travel repair, so I went in to Yodobashi Camera to see what they had.I looked at some Cannon but settled on Pentax again figuring I wouldn't have a steep learning curve.I was right.It runs very similarly to all the Optio family.It's slightly larger than the Optio S line but is still as small as it gets.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice idea - several drawbacks
I was looking for a camera that would let me make annotations on the photo while in camera and there were two choices - Sony's N1 and Pentax T10. The sony is about $100 more. The Pentax suffers from short battery life (note the touch, 3" screen and the temptation to edit in camera).
5-0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use, great pictures, few drawbacks
I purchased this camera in early June 2006... a month later, I'm very happy with it.This is my first digital camera -- I had been waiting for prices to come down and features to improve.All of the buttons and knobs on traditional cameras seemed overwhelming to me -- hence my appreciation of this camera.There are two buttons on the back - one to review pictures you've taken (titled "play") and one to pull up menus (titled "menu").I also bought the wireless remote control (model "E") as well as a generic AC adapter ("Digital Concepts 4.5V AC Adaptor") from Amazon.Both have performed well though I think the wireless remote control was a waste of money -- it's only for taking pictures of yourself, vs. I was hoping it would work with the slideshow feature when plugged into the TV.I also purchased a fast 1 GB SD ("Sandisk SDSDPH-1024-901 1 GB Ultra II SD Plus USB") card from Amazon and seem to have tons of capacity for pictures and video... and I'm not experiencing the slow performance issue that others have referenced.
3-0 out of 5 stars Great new ideas, but not the greatest camera
The 3 inch touchscreen LCD navigation is a really nice feature, and functioned great. It seemed to react better to fingers rather than the included stylus pen though. This being the case, it should come with a screen cleaner cloth to remove smudgy fingerprint residue.

Nice Lcd
4-0 out of 5 stars Great camera for the price!
This camera seems great for the price.It is a simple point and shoot camera with some cool features.I don't know much about digital cameras but it looks like a pretty good camera for someone that just wants to take some simple pictures.It also cost a less that other cameras with similar features.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great value, great camera
I was looking for a 'simple' cheap camera for my 12 year old. I was pleasantly surprised to find a 6MP camera at this price range. In addition to the listed features it also had some 'fun' features such as graphic overlays, audio recording to accompany pictures, etc which my kid learned and started using right away. I also purchased the rechargeable Sony 2500mha AA batteries (comes with the recharger BCG-34HE4) and the Kingston's fastest 512 MB Ultimate memory card (133Mhz). The resulting combination is capacity to take 160 pictures at highest quality with battery power to do it 3 times over (ie. around 500 pictures), a great value.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Optio S4 was MUCH better...
I have both an Optio S4 & an Optio S6.I spend most of my time out at night.Concerts, clubs, raves, etc.The Optio S4 took AMAZING low light & night setting photos.The Optio S6 fails miserably at them.Even in situations where all stage lights are on and the room is well lit, you must repeatedly hit the button to even get it to try and take a picture and half the time the photos come out blurry.
4-0 out of 5 stars Luv this camera!
This is the best little camera!Excellent picture quality.It is easy to use...I have no techie skills in the least, however I can figure out everything on this camera.It literally does fit in an Altoids container, however I wouldn't recommend carring it that way.I bought a tiny little camera protective bag for it and I throw it in my small wristlet bag...I take it every where.The only bad points are the delay in the snap shot time and the zoom feature is not the best...pictures are not as crisp and clear when you use the zoom feature.That being said I would still recommend this camera.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Camera
Very poor quality pictures that look as if the focus doesn't remain constant, with people standing in a group! I have sent them back for a refund. Veryt dissatisfied.

2-0 out of 5 stars Despite much research I ended up with this
As a basic point-and-shoot photographer interested in cataloging my vacations and work travels, I spent a significant amount of time doing research on cameras.When I was in the store, on impulse, I bought this camera not knowing anything about it.I was overly optimistic that Pentax's reliability would continue in their low end digital.
4-0 out of 5 stars What are they talking about?
I don't know what these other people are saying...The Pentax Optio E10 is not a bad model.My parents got me this for my birthday so I wouldn'tcomplain anyways.My only gripes about it is the shutter speed(which I will agree with them is pretty slow), and the fact that you have to upload videos on the computer to hear the sound you just recorded, but for less than $150.00 you can't go wrong!The picture quality is pretty good and there are plenty of options on the camera itself to keep you busy.Yeah the advanced directions are on a disk and you have to go on the computer to read them, but I'm pretty sure if you have a digital camera, you have a computer.Otherwise how are you gonna look at the pictures and print them anyways?Not everyone has or wants a portablecamera printer.I like it though, I'm deployed to Afghanistan right now and I've got to say this camera does everything I need it to and is pretty easy to keep clean.If you have the money yeah go ahead and buy your $600.00 Cannon that will probably get stolen from you, but if your on a budget like me and my parents are, then this is perfect for you or your child(who will eventually lose it, all kid's lose things)!That's my review, if it doesn't help you, a punch in the mouth will!

4-0 out of 5 stars read the label: ENTRY LEVEL.
This should be a good camera for those of us who are starting out. The shutter speed is a little slow, but most of us arent taking pictures of a running ostrich. It delivers what it promises, & that's about it. Very basic, but nice at what it does. The size is a plus, & it's easy to use.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pentax Optio
Very small, fits into pocket.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Camera
I am an experienced digital camera user since the times of the Casio QV-10 and my experience with the Optio s5z was excellent. The picture quality is superb for an ultra compact camera, fast focusing, sharp pictures, good contrast. From my point of view there are 2 cons, as all the compact and ultracompact cameras the flash is weak and it is hard to compose the picture under direct sunlight using the lcd display, an optical viewfinder would make it almost perfect.
4-0 out of 5 stars My first real digital camera
I admit i chose this one because it was the smallest and lightest model out there at the time for a 5mp. I really needed one for my trip to China, and it performed nicely. The pictures came out pretty decent when there were decent lighting, but when it was a bit dark out, pics tend to turn out blurry. Overall a nice little camera to have around you 24/7 due to it's light weight, but if you are going for something important like a wedding or something, i'd suggest something more on the pro level. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars HELP FOR BATTERY PROBLEMS
The Pentax Optio S40 was designed to operate with the 3 volt crv3 battery even tho Pentax says you can use rechargeable NiMh batteries which are rated at 1.2 volts each.A AA size NiMh battery in good condition will deliver about 1.42 volts which in my experience operated my S40 for about 18 months with regular recharges.Now they do not work even when fully charged.

Could not have been happier with the camera.It was easy to use, easy to learn how to use it, and was a all we could want for our daughter's first digital camera.

2-0 out of 5 stars One picture per set of batteries
We have owned this camera for almost two years now.While it was a great little camera for the first 15 months, it now runs through batteries faster than I can take a picture - literally.Customer service recommends using rechargeable batteries (which I have been using), but otherwise repair was their only solution.Friends with the same camera are also having the same problem.While other manufacturers might charge a little bit more, I think a different brand (i.e. Nikon) is well worth the investment. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Customer Service Bites
I purchased the camera for my girlfriend back in December 2004.I liked the idea that it had 5x zoom and assumed the shutter lag problems of the previous models would be resolved.The shutter lag remained a problem but worse was the battery life and the most disappointing is my experience with customer service. The camera would just die on us after just a few pictures and less than an hour after charging overnight this would cause the lens to stall in a half closed position allowing sand to enter the lens.We sent it for service who said there was sand in the lens but claimed they repaired the problem.When we received the camera back the problem persisted.I tried buying another battery but neither stayed charged and the lens continued to get stuck half closed.We sent it back to Pentax and this time they said sand was causing the problem again (it was never exposed to sand since its return from Pentax).Pentax wanted to charge a couple hundred $ to fix it and when we refused to pay for the repair they returned the camera in pieces.I once again called and complained and am yet to hear back from Pentax.I will never buy another Pentax camera again after being subjected to this customer service.

This camera takes amazing pictures. It has a ton of functionality, which I have not figued out yet. It will take some time, but it will be worth it.

Editorial Review

Raising the stakes from its predecessor--the groundbreaking Optio S--the Pentax Optio S4 adds more megapixel resolution without adding any size to the camera's sleekly designed, tough aluminum-alloy body. It features a unique 3x zoom sliding lens system body that allows the lens to move up, away, and lie fully flush within the camera frame to protect the lens and allow for the camera's tiny dimensions.

Features

  • 4.0 MegaPixel CCD
  • Ultra lightweight aluminum alloy body weighs only 3.5 oz
  • Movie mode records 60 seconds of footage as an AVI file with sound
  • LCD monitor bright enough for use in direct sunlight
  • 11MB internal memory

5-0 out of 5 stars The Smallest Line of Real Digital Cameras
I had the very first Optio S, and I could not find many things about it to improve upon, except for the battery door hinge, less barrel distortion, and more megapixels. Well, the next generation Optio's have 4, 5, and 6 megapixels, so take your pick. The biggest selling point for me has always been the size. These cameras fill niches that a bigger camera frequently cannot. It is ideally suited for street photography, travel, candids, and snapshots.

So I figure I might as well give my thoughts on it. I don't have much to compare it too, but I really appreciate this camera, and I continue to feel, looking back, that this was a great buy.

I bought this camera because I was looking to replace my small, point-and-shoot film camera.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled by the low price
While the camera worked, I had very few complaints about it (short battery life, but it took good high quality pix). However, this camera definitely comes with hidden charges. The most expensive and most fragile part in the camera - the LCD screen - is not covered by warranty. In my case, the LCD cracked without being bumped or dropped, (and the clear plastic protective cover didn't crack). This has led to THREE MONTHS of dealing with service centers, paying an additional approximately $150 for parts and labor, and I still haven't received the camera back fixed. It seems the part is in such high demand from people with the same problem that I am still far down on the list for replacement.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good, stable, reliable camera with excellent picture quality
I used this digital camera on a trip to Miami and was very pleased with its performance.What I liked most was the ability to customize my photograph according to light condition, object, etc...if I wanted to, or just use the auto setting feature of the camera.If you want a certain shot to come out a certain way and you are confident that you can do that, then this camera will allow you to do that.If you don't want to mess with that, then just use the auto setting that will balance everything out.The pictures are clear, crisp, and well lit.The flash is great.Just keep in mind that there is a small delay between picture taking.The SD card slot is easily located, battery life is excellent.Another good point is the small size:small enough to fit in your pocket, and use only one hand to take pictures if you want, but still large enough so that even large hands like mine (size XXL gloves)can access the buttons clearly, evenly, and without mistakes.Although the complete instructions manual is more of a tome than a manual, the quick reference card helps out quite a bit.Skimming the manual, if not reading it entirely, is strongly suggested to get the most out of this camera.After that, it's a snap.I definitely recommend this camera for everyday and some higher end applications, although I wouldn't use it for photo-critical situations and circumstances.Thats a job for a high-end professional camera.Try it, you'll like it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better, but ok if you don't have kids
I bought this camera after looking at several other cameras.I liked the size of the camera, Pentax name and claimed battery life.I think the color reproduction is ok, but not great, and the picture clarity is ok, but not great.Using 2400 mAh recharageble batteries made this camera almost useless.Since almost every shot requires a flash, I only would get 30 or so pictures before needing to switch batteries.And since NiMH batteries loose charge when not in use, I would find the batteried dead if I left the camera a few day.I have since purchased some 1400 mAh, Li-ion CRV3 rechargeble batteries.These are a must for anyone with this camera.I can't tell you how many pictures it gets per charge, because after 2 weeks it is still on the first charge, and has not even dropped from the full charge indicator!This is several hundred pictures, viewing and deleting pictures on the camera and transfering the picutes to a computer.As a bonus, since the CRV3 battery supplies a full 3V, the flash charges about twice as fast.(NiNM AA batteries are only 1.3 V each)

Editorial Review

The Pentax Optio S60 6MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom may be small, but it's no lightweight when it comes to digital photography. Featuring a 1/2.5-inch primary color 6-megapixel CCD, 3x optical zoom, and giant 2.5-inch TFT color LCD monitor, the Optio S60 performs like a heavyweight. Add a handy help function that displays explanations of shooting and playback functions, and you can leave the instruction manual at home and start taking professional-quality shots as soon as you pick it up.Read more

  • Large, 2.5-inch LCD color monitor for easy viewing
  • Features auto-focus, autoexposure, and auto flash capabilities
  • 3x optical zoom and 2.6x digital zoom for combined 8x zoom
  • High-quality aluminum alloy body for sleek design

5-0 out of 5 stars Good, solid little camera
I learned a valuable lesson recently. When I first bought this camera I loaded it with some 2500 mAh batteries. I was extremely disappointed that I could only get about 30 pictures before the battery died. When I started to research battery chargers, I came to realize that not all chargers are created equal. Many older and even cheaper new chargers are not capable of fully charging high capacity batteries. This is because they use a timed charge which shuts off without regard for how much the battery is actually charged. So if you are still using a 3 or 5 year old charger and it isn't a "smart" charger, then you might only be getting a 50% or less charge. In my case, with an old Energizer charger, I reckon I was only getting a 30% charge.
2-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre
On paper, this camera should be ideal, however, it fails to live up to its marketing hype: picture quality for outdoor scenic shots is good, but indoor and softer light situations show its limitations. Photo quality is mediocre. The camera also uses batteries rapidly. I would suggest looking at the Canon A510, Sony Cybershot DSC-series, or Kodak Easyshare C-series instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pentax S60-Big price little perks
$199+ The Pentax S60 DOES take very nice pictures HOWEVER it may not be worth the price because of its poor features: only 11 MB of memory, low AA battery-life, and the movie playback mode is hard to hear (not loud enough).Also the latch that keeps the battery in place does not seem sturdy. The upside to this camera is its picture quality (6 MP) and large screen. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoying my new camera
I purchased this camera in June as a step up from my canon powershot A40. I had pentax lenses which helped make my decision. I was also reviewing the Canon Rebel line. I am happy with my choice. The range of options: all manual to programs and variations in between. I also wanted multiple shots per second and it's quite fast. Some of the controls are a bit awkward in some of the programs e.g. hold down button x while adjusting shutter or aperture with button y. But my hands are small so I'm adjusting to it. Overall, I'd buy it again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Value and convience
For the price this is a great entry level DSLR.I purchased it six months ago and have found it wonderful and easy to use. The pictures are crisp and sharp and the functions easy to learn. I use this camera body weekly and love that the lenses for my other Pentax SLR's work with the *ist DL ... Read more
