"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.

Panasonic DMC-LX7-K First Impressions

"I also could afford it."

I needed a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. A great camera for the money and my needs! One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. I haven't tried the macro shots yet, but will update this review when I get too. You'll be glad you bought this one.

"Very impressed overall!"

Its great for quick pictures everywhere with clear pictures. The Panasonic DMC-LX7-K is small and fast. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle.

"Awesome performance."

Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera. If you want to take bird pictures. A great camera for the money and my needs!

"Go with the Sony."

That is the reason I bought this Sony DSCRX100/B. I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. I bought this Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Sony DSCRX100/B.

"Decent battery life."

I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. The recommended solution is to send in the camera for cleaning. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. I am so impressed with this Sony DSCRX100/B! It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image.

Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. Some people even claim that the Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIISL rivals medium format quality. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Manual focus would've been nice. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

"Beautiful landscapes."

My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. The zoom truly is extraordinary! It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. Where this Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIK really shines though is the video recording oddly enough.

"Cheaper ones are ok."

Maybe it is for a small POS. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. Color and white balance is generally good. No other Pentax Point & Shoot Digital Camera of this size is fast and have the quality of this Canon E1CNPSG7XMIIK. I have already taken it and my P900 to three photo shoots.

"I take it when I travel."

I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. Better photos than her XR phone. The stability at long zoom was fantastic. I will update this report once I have used it more.

"You guessed it, buy this."

10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift.
