"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.

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.

Canon 4335037993 First Impressions

"Zoom I am still iffy on."

Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. I started with a NEX-6 and moved up to an Canon 4335037993. I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. I am so impressed with this Canon 4335037993! The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning.

"All in my Pelican case."

Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. You'll be glad you bought this one. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. Manual focus would've been nice. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them.

"Keep it simple!"

Excellent two characteristics in a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. It took me a while to figure it out. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things.

"Fantastic camera."

After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. They make it look like I know what I'm doing.
