Pentax Optio E10 review

this was my first digicam, and i was stupid enough to trust the well known pentax name to guide my purchase decision.

no matter what option settings you use, the images this camera produces are always either sharp but overly bright, or totally noisy yet evenly lit. over several days of testing i was not able to shoot a single good looking photo with it.

the construction quality feels very light and plasticky, at this price probably normal. what is not normal - at any price- is that it takes a whopping 5 seconds for a picture to be taken after you pressed the shutter button.

even if they sold this at $20 it would still be junk because most cell phone cams take better pictures than this.

Problems:

atrocious image quality

5 second wait until a picture is actually taken after you have pressed the button
