Well, this camera is indeed not one that gives mindblowing results. It will cost a lot of photoshop hours to get a satisfying image. I bought this camera for about € 399 euros in 2002 and was one of the first 4 MP cameras at the time, this was the first and last time that I thought more is better. Most pictures lack of detail, and contain, even shooting at ISO 100 (minimum, maximum is 200), a lot of noise. Some positive points on this camera are the construction and it's handling. The body is ...

Some pictures are good, but the most of them are bad. The battery is good, the optical viewfinder is good, the macro (I used many times) is good, but there are a lot of problems which made me unhappy. Avoid Pentax, or this model! Problems: Indoor, the pictures are blury, bad focused, almost always. I have to take 100 pictures for having 6 good. This is a very bad camera. Before I had a Canon 2 Mpix, which was very, very good. This is a very, very bad camera! I was, and I am very, very ...

This is 'just ok' for me. I previously had a MONSTER Kodak which performed better. Problems: I have problems with the time delay and getting decent pics of my kids and pets etc. The time delay is too long. Can anyone help ?. You can email me tonyb@sagatrade.co.id.

I bought this camera for £249 (uk) when most places were listing around £300. The first thing to say is that the cameras build quality , size and photographers features were great for the money. However the picture quality was very "noisy" when looked at closley , although i admit this was not as obvious when printed out. But i still think that the pictures were poor for a 4 million pixel camera , no matter what setting you put it on (ie: 100 iso etc as people have said in reviews) , although ...

Árához képest gyenge a képminősége, használni könnyű, kicsi, sokat tud Problems: Rossz minőségű képeket készít vakkuval

The images are just not up to par. They are noisy even at iso100 compared to other cameras. There are better cameras out there at this price range.

After using it for 1 month, I had to upgrade to a Canon S50. The image quality is not good at all compared to other 4 MP cameras in the market. Can produce good results under good lighting. Too much noise.. Forget it! (Note I own or owned Kodak DC 50, 120, DC4800, 4900, Nikon CP900, Pentax 430, Minolta D7, Canon S50, and Fuji S2 pro, so I think I can compare a lot of things between cameras) This one was very dissappointing. Problems: The shutter over the lens broken in a week in my pocket. So ...

I had this camera for 2 months. The size and build quality attracted me. It is indeed, very well made. But the thing took awful pictures. My old Casio QV2000 took better picturs and that was just a 2.1MB resolution. Many pictures were out of focus and full of noise, Performed badly in the dark with the poor autofocus and over compensating flash. I dont know why it makes such big file pitcures, 4MB takes ages to write onto disk making large delay in next photo. After several months, could not ...

I own the camera for several month. I am very dissepointed with the picture qwality. There are many focusing and light metering problems. Taking a picture in a room with a bright window in anny angle to the camera is a unpossible task: No compensation, verry poor flash compensation poor colors. Outside a little better but far from the minimum I expected. Problems: PIcture quality. Focusing. A VERY DISSAPOINTING CAMERA DO NOT BUY!!!!
