"Not a fan of that."

Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures. I can't wait to try it out at the zoo. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle.

Pentax KP Silver Body Final Thoughts

"God bless you Pentax!"

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. The package is so small and light I barely notice it has a lens.

"So I ordered it anyway."

I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. The zoom is incredible as well. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife. It took me a while to figure it out. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card.

Pentax KP Black Body Final Thoughts

"Photos come out great!"

I bought this Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. Looks amazing and excited to try it. Overall, I'm really impressed with this little Pentax KP Black Body. The only problem I had was with the LCD screen. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over.

"Zoom I am still iffy on."

Maybe it is for a small POS. The Pentax has many features which are very easy to use and get to. The zoom is incredible as well. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. It will take some getting used to.

Pentax Final Thoughts

"The Pentax does it."

If you want to take bird pictures. So glad I chose the Pentax . I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold.

"Awesome pics!"

If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. Looks amazing and excited to try it. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually.

"All in one package."

Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands.

Olympus E-M5 MARK II 1240 BLACK Final Thoughts

"It's SOOOOOO cool."

Some people even claim that the Olympus E-M5 MARK II 1240 BLACK rivals medium format quality. Let me say from the start, I really like Olympus. Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel. Olympus, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close.

"The viewer works great."

My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. Its great for quick pictures everywhere with clear pictures. I've researched this Canon 0511C001 A LOT and I only heard great things. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera.

Canon 0511C001 Final Thoughts

"She swears by it."

Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. I would like a firmware update to fix that. If you want to take bird pictures. The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling.

"The zoom is terrific."

It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera. I wanted something to capture my kids activities. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Its really the camera to take on day trips. That is the reason I bought this Canon SX530BUNDLE.

Make sure you format first or it may fry on you. You'll be glad you bought this one. The stability at long zoom was fantastic. No other Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this Casio EX-N20BN. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning.

"Still five stars!"

But overall I really liked this bundle and the quality is awesome! After over 10,000 pictures, my Casio EX-N20BN operates perfectly in every aspect. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. Where this Casio EX-N20BN really shines though is the video recording oddly enough. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy.
