Pentax Optio 50 review

Not really sure if Pentax makes this one or justs brands it, it also exists as Argus and Vivitar, I noticed, after I had bought it. I liked it as long as it was working, could even use it as PC camera. But, what are good features worth if it doesn't take pictures?

My conclusion; WORTHLESS. Won't buy Pentax anymore. I think I will start using film again...


This camera lasted exactly 2 weeks longer than the warranty. I wouldn't waste money on this one, shame on you, Pentax! Henry's quoted $260,- for repair (on a $249,- camera?), won't buy there anymore either.
The shutter doesn't work anymore, it does everything except taking pictures (or videos).
