4 out of 5 stars   Great little camera
By bassplayer4x4 (Raleigh NC) June 24, 2010
Review submitted for Pentax Optio WS80 10MP Digital Camera (White & Purple) (PKOPTWS80W)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Small / Compact, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Short Battery Life
Other Comments: we bought this for our daughter for her birthday, controls are well laid out. The face recognition is super. Pictures are night, although sometimes there seems to be a bit of shutter lag between when the button is pressed and the actual picture is taken. She is 8, but a big photog nut. The waterproof and shock proof features are very nice.
I recommend this product Yes, I recommend this product
