Extremely average camera.

Always a mistake to buy something just because it is cheap.

Average score is 3.93 out of 5 on the link you've posted. I'd say that is above average.

I use the 6mp of vthis camera and found it perfect in most situations. You need plenty of light for indoor shots as the flas is not brilliant. Apart from that it's great. I suspect that this 7mb will not be too different from mine. Voted hot!

I have the optio A10 version, very similar looking to the above.. and think it is a great camera and a doddle to use.

I bought an S6 (the 6mp model) to replace an old digicam for my mum and she loves it because it's so compact. In good light and outdoor it takes brilliant pictures. In the dark the flash is not great and images often blur unless you have a steady hand. I'd say 50% of her low light images are blurred. All in all, it's not bad but not great.

Having said that...my sister loved it (again because it was so handy) so she went and bought the S7 (this model) when it was on hotukdeals last time. I thought the anti-blur function would make all the difference but it's not brilliant. Certainly not as good as the Sony or Canon anti-shake systems.

So...very light, very compact, very simple to use, great for outdoors pics and at this price it's a bargain but if you want something for all occassions I'd say pay a bit extra and go for one of the new Sonys or Canon's.

Still, thumbs up!

It is very average and like most small compacts cant take pictures at higher iso speeds. This is a much better buy.

Hold on guys! I've really got to stick up for this excellent little camera! I recently bought one myself, after owning it's predecessor - the 3MP "Optio S" for about 3-4 years, and am extremely pleased with it. In fact I'd certainly recommend it to others, especially at £105 quid.

In my view size is the absolute key. If a camera is too bulky, I just wouldn't bother taking it to half the places I take this one to. You can slip it in your jeans pocket and take it down the pub, no problem at all. You hardly know it's there, which is just how it should be. Similarly on holiday it certainly doesn't weigh down your short pockets either. On the other hand, if I had a bulkier camera that I had to carry round in a case separately, or strap round my neck, or if it felt uncomfortable in my pocket, I just wouldn't bother.

Obviously it's no good a camera looking nice and pretty if the picture quality is crap, however I've found both my Pentax's to be more than adequate. In fact people have often remarked how clear the photos that I've taken are.

These reviews can often be extremely nit-picking, and aimed more towards professional photographers. If your a strict camera enthusiast, you'll no doubt want a picture perfect camera, and this may well not be the camera for you. However in the process you're inevitably more likely to end up with a bulkier device, which is something I just wouldn't have. For Jo public I personally think this is a great camera. You have to weigh up it's size, convenience, and are you actually going to take it out with you? If not, doesn't it it defeat the object? Many of the smallest cameras on the market are often criticized for their image quality, however in my view I don't feel that there's much of a compromise here.

On the other hand, before getting this one I initially went for a Casio Exilim EX-S770, and this certainly WAS a mistake! Not only was it far more expensive - £170 on the web, and anything up to £249 in the shops, the picture quality was dreadful with blurring in the lower left hand corner. With my refund I decided to stick to Pentax which I'd been very happy with before, and have once again been proven very satisfied.

I bought the 4mp version (s4i) a few years ago (and paid £250 for the privelage). I have taken thousands of pictures in many situations and that little camera never let me down. The picture quality was pretty good and the battery lasted forever. Ok there are the problems of slow shutter release and abysmal flash but thats generally the case for all compact digitals. Good pictues are more about the subject and user rather then the quality of the camera. I wasnt happy about the slow shutter release so I bought a digital slr (nikon D40).
Even though I have a 'good' camera I had no hesistation in purchasing this Pentax last week for those situations when I dont want to carry the D40 around. Infact it was the 'average' Penatax that got me into photography and willing to spend £1000+ on photography equipment
I dont think most people who buy cameras use them nearly as much as they think they will. If you are buying it for the odd family occaision or holiday , buy the S7, I dont think you will be dissapointed.

I posted this camera bacause I was happy to purchase one, not beacuse I have read many reviews and made abstract conclusions. Although guilty of both in the past.
