Pentax Optio S5i review

Good little camera. I bought it for everyday use and for scuba diving (has an underwater case). What I really like is the marine and marine movie mode and with the green easy button, switching modes is very easy. I had thought about upgrading to a large LCD screen camera, but for some reason, pentax stopped making underwater cases for their digital cameras. Go figure. I guess I will have to buy a Canon when the time comes to upgrade.

Problems:

No problems, but I wish the camera had a AF assist lamp and the shutter button was in the standard location.
