Pentax Optio SVi review
Dec 21, 2005

the day after purchasing it the "Sliding lens sistem" broke down. THIS IS UNFORGIVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pentax has replaced my camera with a new one.
Maybe the previous camera was an unluky specimen.

NOW EVERYTHING IS OK AND THE CAMERA WORKS VERY WELL.

pro:
-EXCELLENT FEATURES
*5X optical zoom in a very small body, only 6 oz. in working condition.
*Alluminium body
*a lot of manual setting, this may help in bad light situations. (This is a compact camera, mind it)
*intuitive menus.

Cons:
*I still have not understood how to switch off the lcd. Maybe i have used the camera too short.
*Lcd a little bit small, but it has the optical viewfinder, not all the cameras in this class do.
*focusing is slow, this is the only real drawback.

Problems:

The problem has been solved replacing the camera.
