Pentax Optio S45 review

After looking at a couple other $300 (Canadian) cameras I decided on the S45. I like the size and features for the price. The menu structure is very easy to use. The photo quality surprised me as well, it picks up the correct colors, tones and shades. The 2.5" screen is a feature every camera should have. Battery life is excellent, it comes with 2x 2000mAh rechargables, I'd buy a 2nd set.

Problems:

None with the camera.

The charger that came with the unit is slow to charge. The manual says 14 to 16 hrs to charge 2000mAh, whether thats the initial charge or all the time I don't know. I use a 3rd party charger that holds 8 AA and restores the batteries in 1.5 hours.
