Have some heat, I brought the LS1100 version of this, which is basically the same, it's a great camera and this is very good value for the money I originally paid.
#2
good price for 14mp!
#3
According to this article the original price is £79.99 so Play were over charging by £20

Does this make it a good camera then because it has 14mp

Once you get past 8mp, the mega pixels don't really make a difference to the picture quality. However, Pentax are known for producing quality cameras and a 4x Optical zoom isn't half bad either. Depends on your preferences and budget I guess
#7
Good price, so i'm voting hot (bought it the other week when it was the same price @Amazon). But like agree with previous comments - boy...it is the very ugly sibling of the optio 6 i bought it to replace :-(
#8
Im not sure what the difference is exactly but Amazon are selling the LS1100 for the same price.

The MP myth :) - The camera needs a good lens to take good pictures, no point in having a 1000mp camera if the lens is crap. for this type of camera, you probably wouldnt the difference between the 8mp and 14mp if it has the same lens

Exactly :)

Well you may be able to see a difference with more megapixels but the more megapixels on a small sensor the more noise you're going to get in photos unless the camera is designed well.
#12
dam you beat me to it :(
#13
Voted hot for the amount of mega pixels you get for your money and a pretty good brand, but as many have already stated. The number of mega pixels dont decide how good the picture quality is... a 3 megapixel camera will print a decent a4 print. it's all about the lens and the sensor...

P.S. This camera is UGLY!

Each to their own I suppose, I think it's a nicely understated and functional looking design which makes it a lot more classy than most.

A 14MP sensor in a cheap camera hints at noisy pictures and poor low light performance however.
#15
I actually like the look of the camera. very very retro but if you like something odd/different, its perfect. its actually really good for the price for a basic point and shoot plus it is (super) light and seems strong and sturdy. Much much better than my phone camera so I've just left mine in my bag/pocket so i can always take a good picture when i need one.
#16
Intreresting, Pentax used to make some nice cameras however that was a while ago.
I agree with Nad_84, the camera is ugly, though this may not be a bad thing, it will stand out.
the 14 MP is of no interest as image quality is dependant on several things working together, hopefully I can set it to use only 5MP.
anyway I was interested enough that I ordered one and will see what it is like.

voted hot for price and ugliness!

"combined with the 14 effective megapixels" - and there's that nasty word "effective". Probably means its interpolated! So yes, hopefully you can turn it down to native.

No it doesn't mean it's interpolated - 'effective' pixels are the number of sensor pixels used to produce the image. This can be less than the total number of pixels on the sensor e.g. when the sensor is larger than the projected image size.
