This is a cheap average compact. Pentax makes brilliant DSLRs.

Get's good reviews on and for £50 you can't really complain. Looks good as well!

I had to return one of this just after 2 days of buying it from screen turned green and buttons not responding had it refunded though so if I where you keep away from it that's probably why they're selling it cheap, so cold for me

just cos you got a broken one doest make it a cold deal.... its still nearly half price so its still a good buy... iv just bought one n its been all good so far.... ideal for me to take to gigs.... small to fit in pocket on the go and cheap enough to not be too bothered about loosing it crowd surfing... nice high iso sensitivity so should be good for low light shots (not tested yet tho) il ipdate the post after weekend gig test

Checked the website yesturday and they were in stock, got home to order one and they were out of stock (sad panda) however I pottered along to my local ASDA and they had them in at this price so I looted one.

Does not come with a case or free memory card, nice looking camera.
