Pentax Optio S5i review

Screws fell out, sent it in for repair and they found lens device to be broken. Weird!


I had this camera for 1.5 years and I loved it, the picture quality was very good and the battery life was great. I never had a problem learning how to use it. Recently I noticed that the screws started falling out so I took it to the retailer who then sent it to the warehouse to be repaired. After being there 1.5 months I was told that the lens mechanism had shifted from the screws not being there. I was told that the camera would be there much longer as I was waiting on an estimate. I was really disappointed about that and I can no longer buy that camera at the retailer. Im gonna try the Canon powershot sd 630 and hope it makes me just as happy. Lucky I bought the extended warranty and they replaced my camera.
