Pentax EI-2000 review

I used to be a pro 20 years ago. Good camera at half price, but not worth the orrigional RRP of £700. Focusing is no problem if you use P setting and spot focusing. Good quality images with low noice need ISO rating of 50 or 25, but ISO of 100 works fine 95% of the time. The green setting is brilliant for my wife who knows next to nothing about cameras, while offering me the versitility of setting evertyhing on manual. Nice touch putting the hot shoe in. Shame about the so called "manual fosusing". SLR is achieved using slr cini camera technology developed 40 years ago. Very good feature giving slr at an affordable price.


Software can crash the camera if you twiddle the buttons too fast. Had to restart by pulling the batteries out, and resetting everything on factory settings. Has happen just twice. Anyone else had problems like this?
