Nice stocking stuffer

 

Should have tons of pix to look at soon!

Nice features and LCD. Easy to use and takes 1080 video in bursts

Plastic body makes me worry about its lifespan. Had to deduct and egg for that

Expert review by:

Pentax Optio E80

 

The Optio E80 is a basic compact camera from Pentax that has a few tricks up its sleeve despite its bargain basement price.

The E80 is equipped with speedy face detection (it's claimed to track down up to 32 faces in 0.03 second). The E80 is available in silver or black.
