Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pentax Optio RZ18 Digital Camera - Black (16MP, 18 x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD Screen (Electronics)
I bought this for £115.99, at which price it is an absolute steal. The operation is simple and the layout quite ergonomic. It has an outrageous 18 x zoom, a good anti-shake and menus which are easy to use. There are a variety of modes, of which the panorama is the stand-out. It is really easy to control the flash between different modes and the HD video works well, though you can't zoom while shooting. The optics produce good resolution and work well with the 16mp sensor. I'm not technical enough to discuss noise, but the results I have had so far have been impressive. I'm going to carry this everywhere and am looking forward to using it at a wedding in May. It would have been nice to have a viewfinder, but very few modern compacts do. The metallic orange colour is less boring than black and white.

Hi, I just bought one of this pentax optio rz18, but I found that when the camera is closed, I can heard some sounds and I feel something is shaking inside the part of the lens there when I moved the camera. I feel the lens is not very solid as it should fit nicely with the body of the camera.
I think it should not has room inside the camera to make me feel something is shaking right? Can anybody tell me he/she met the same problem? Is it a common problem or I got a defective product :( ??

I think the noise is to do with the anti-shake mechanism, but I'm not a camera mechanic. If it is working fine, don't worry too much.
