Pentax Optio W60 review

I purchased the Pentax Optio W60 just over a week ago when the sales person assured me it would be a good replacement for my Canon Ixus400 which had finally "given up the ghost". I had intended purchasing a Fugifilm F100fd. I told the salesperson that I wanted something with the picture quality of the Canon.

The Pentax is very easy to use, has some great features but the picture quality is very poor. Pictures are not sharp and are pixellalted. Also, it is very hard to use outside in bright sun as has no viewfinder and the LCD screen is impossible to see. My Canon 4MP camera took sharp pictures, which were far superior to the 10MP Pentax.

I am returning this camera to the shop - have informed the salesperson.

Problems:

Poor picture quality.
Pictures are pixellated.
Hard to use LCD screen in bright sunlight.
