Pentax Optio 50 review

My 1st digital camera bought in Oct. 2005. I bought it without thinking because PENTAX name was a garantee of a good product, I thought. Big mistake. The first set of batteries were good for 60 pictures, second set with new NIMH 2600mAh made only 10 pictures.
In warranty service twice in 3 months. The same batteries are now good for about 80 pictures.


Very good pictures under the best conditions, not too many shadows. Quality deteriorates quickly if too much sun or deep shadows.
EV adjustments, Sport mode don't work
Pictures with flash not good at all outside.
Overall advice- don't buy it for any price, but I guess nobody would buy a camera introduced in 2005.
