Total Disapointment

 

First off, the camera is made of PLASTIC! Secondly, the ZOOM is TERRIBLE! Cannot take close up pictures because the picture is EXTREMELY blurry. Very bad purchase. Camera was sent back.

Really Disappointed

 

I had high hopes for a camera from Pentax. Out of the box this camera's lens made a loud grinding sound when being extended or retracted. I returned that one and requested a replacement. The second camera made a similar grinding sound but not as loud....
