Pentax Optio S40 review

DON'T BUY THIS CAMERA IT IS A DUD! Having previously had a Kodak DC3400 for 4 years I was looking for an upgraded camera with the ability to carry around easily and use indoors and at night. What a mistake. The 4 year old Kodak takes vastly superior photos, crisp, clear phot quality. Images from this camera are just passable for outside shots, but when you take it indoors the images are terrible, grossly under exposed on any flash setting. The Kodak was a 2Mp camera, average image was 400Kb, the images on this are 1.4Mb, blurred, ghosted and heaps of noise.
