5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Point & Shoot Camera, 17 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera [5mp 3x Optical Zoom] (Electronics)
I don't normally bother writing product reviews, but felt I had to in this situation. After reading some of the comments about this camera I though I had looked up the wrong model.
I can only assume that the low ratings about this camera are because they have genuinely received faulty units, or they have not bothered to read the manual correctly. My camera has been excellent. The images are pin sharp, the optical zoom is brilliant on a camera of this size, and the battery life has been excellent (I put this down to only ever using duracells, I presume the other reviewer probably uses Car Boot Sale specials which any digital camera will consume within minutes) As for blurry pictures, I can only imagine that this is due to the feature on this camera, which allows you to focus by partially holding the shoot button until you get a green light and then taking the picture. If you just point and shoot it will be blurred. You can turn this off, but I suppose that involves reading the manual and then navigating a few menus. Anyway, take my word for it this is a good camera for the price - as long as you can operate basic electrical equipment and don't mind looking at the instructions for ten minutes to set it up correctly.
