Pentax Optio M20 review

This is a great camera for the price! TONS of features..uses AA batteries and cheap SD memory (even SDHC)..and even has a histogram!!
I've heard of people complaining about the battery life but I use name-brand nimh batteries and I find the battery life is excellent!
I also love the grip on this camera! Perfect for one-handed shots.
Oh and most importantly it also takes decents pictures.


Slow start up/shutdown?
Any pictures taken with high ISO (800-1600)are pretty grainy. You need the flash for indoor/low-light shots.
Another thing that could make this budget camera better is a metal body but then again it's a budget camera!
