"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.

"Not necessary with this."

Everything about it is solid and satisfying. I needed a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close.

"The upgrade works fine."

"So far I like it a lot."

It took me a while to figure it out. The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning.

"You will love it!"

I like everything about the camera. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. I needed a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Make sure you format first or it may fry on you.

"Wonderful pictures."

I just love how easy it is to get good looking shots. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. Manual focus would've been nice. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. I wanted something to capture my kids activities.

"Still five stars!"

The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Excellent two characteristics in a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. The initial charge using the Fujifilm 600019825 to charge the battery took about 2 hours. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed.

Fujifilm 600019825 Final Thoughts

"So I purchased the Fujifilm 600019825."

I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. Not to mention it worked great as a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera too. Some reviewers have problems with clarity, but I certainly do not.

I'm still playing around with it. Excellent quality photos too. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. With a prime lens, zoom is one less thing you worry about.

"It's SOOOOOO cool."

Meh, life goes on, immediately ordered more batteries off Amazon. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. After over 10,000 pictures, my Olympus K-92242-02 operates perfectly in every aspect. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use.
