I ordered this as a stop gap, I broke my 'favourite' Canon but couldn't afford that particular model for a while. However, I have been very surprised at how good this Camera does. The colours can be a little strong on outdoor shots but nothing too drastic and can't be resolved when editing. I'm very impressed with portraits though, great skin colour.
A tad heavy and a bit plastic, but at the price, that's acceptable.
Using most of my pictures in a website, I take upwards of 50 photo's a week for that purpose. Well pleased!
So if you're after a lower priced camera, this is well worth the money.

I wanted a cheap camera to keep in my pocket/fishing box that would take good pics and video and thats exactly what I got.Easy to use.Cant fault it for the price!I had Ricoh caplio(build quality garbage - sent to Germany twice then threw away!),fuji s1000(lovely pics but too big and sooo many settings)but the Pentax is spot on and if you drop it you wont cry for too long at this price!
