4 out of 5 stars   Performed as expected
By Ginny (Buxton, NC) June 15, 2011
Review submitted for Pentax Optio RZ10 Digital Camera with 720p HD Video - Black (PKOPRZ10K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Small / Compact, Good Image Quality, Easy To Use, Short Lag Time, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization
Cons: No Viewfinder
Other Comments: I was actually looking for a lower end camera but the price was right. I have used the camera a fair amount but am still learning. I have had some inside shots with the yellow tinge and some shots with dark background and dark subject that seemed really dark--I probably should have used a forced flash. Even with the shield I bought it can be really hard to use in bright sunlight but then I expected this that's why I bought the shield. All in all the camera has performed as expected.

1 out of 5 stars   Performs Poorly
By Agent Dale Cooper (New York, NY) November 26, 2010
Review submitted for Pentax Optio RZ10 Digital Camera with 720p HD Video - Black (PKOPRZ10K)
Verified Purchaser
Cons: Poor low light images, Lots of noise, Images are not sharp
Other Comments: Under low light, there is lots of noise making the image unusable. This occurs at every ISO setting. The same issue occurs indoors under normal light settings. I have a Canon IXUS 8.0 megapixel which performs way better. The 14 megapixels are inconsequential when the camera sensor is small and of bad quality.
