Overall: Easy to use and well built; generally a fine camera. Start time (boot up) much improved from previous Pentax Optios. LCD real estate is just right. I use the rechargeable batteries (AA), and recommend strongest power batteries available. Actually recommend Pentax's battery pack versions as I've had them in the past and they last long and are convenient.Image quality is not quite what I expected. Colors, sharpness suffer a bit. Internal lighting photos are not quite as sharp as ...

My daughter got one of these for a birthday present. I liked it so much that I got one for my wife. I'm just about ready to go out and get one for myself. It is a great little point & shoot camera. Videos are a nice feature. I've been a "Pentax man" for 30 years. Currently have two MX bodies, a K1000 body, and a *istDs digital. They are great little cameras, but for easy snapshots, it is hard to beat this little baby, (emphasis on "little"). June 2005 update: Got one of these for my ...

This is a excellent camera which I would highly recomend to anyone that is looking for a pocketsize camera, infact it is my favorite over all the competition in the pocketsize 5MP. This is my 5th digi cam (fujifilm 3mp finepix, exilim s2, s3, canon powershot g5) I switched from the Exilim s3 to the powershot g5 to get really nice picture quality, but soon realized that the powershot is way to bulky and i wasnt using it nearly enough, so i switched to the optio. For what I use it for it ...

The Optio s5i is a superb little camera. This is my second digital camera. My first was a Canon S400, but it had significant shutter lag (difficult to take pictures of the dog) and worse, its pre-flash always made me close my eyes in each picture (lesson learned: try the camera out on yourself before buying!). The Optio s5i produces excellent pictures, and there is practically no shutter lag. When pre-focused, the picture is almost instantaneous. With autofocus, speeds are excellent when ...

A very good choice for someone who wants a camera that can fit into a shirt pocket. It is so compact, I hardly notice that it is there. The picture quality is good. If one reads the manual, making use of its features is not difficult at all. Problems: The ability to focus in low light conditions is not as good as I thought it would be based on other reviews.
