Pentax Optio S50 review

I buy this as my second camera to be carried in the pocket.
It is small and uses standard batteries.
After some test I can see that the results are not so good as mi Dimage 7hi
Less resolution (both have 5Mp. sensors)
back light pictures are very bads if you have a tree on a bright sky the light eat the branches

Problems:

Too much automatic. It is dificult tio understand what the camera is doing to take a picture even reading the manual carefully
