Pentax Optio S12 review

thought the tsv demo of this camera on qvc uk looked impressive, so ordered the camera.
what a disappointment. badly exposed photo's-they looked washed out in bright conditions.
focus was all over the place. talk about blurry!
there were little pockets of random sharpness in the image and that was it.
i took a picture of a bush next door to where i live and compared it to one i took with a canon and also a fuji. looking at them at actual size the pentax showed all the leaves were smeared together, whilst the fuji and canon (i have various models of each) showed individual leaves.
a heap of junk if ever there was.

sent it back and got a refund thank god.

Problems:

badly focussed/exposed images.
