Pentax Optio S50 review

I got this camera week ago from butterflyphotos.com for just 199$. It's a great value! Camera is small, nice, aluminimun body is very well made 1.8 " LCD is great. I already used it to record lecture in school using dictaphone function. It's great! Video capturing is ok. Using camera is very simple. As simple as canon I would say. Reccomend this camera to beginners and to everybody who needs cheap 5mpx with voice recording (which is very useful)

Problems:

The only one problem is image quality. I've alreardy read about it on many places. But, to be perfectly honest, if you are not going to use it for publishing it's ok. escecially for two hundred bucks 5megapixels 1,8"LCD and voice recording function. Don't know why is everywhere written what voice is recording in mono. It's stereo.
