Review submitted for Pentax X90 26x Zoom Digital Camera (PKX90)
Pros:
Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light, Short Battery Life, Lag / Shutter Delay
Other Comments: I found the camera to be inferior in quality and not on a par with similar priced cameras by other manufacturers. The batteries do not last long and are difficult to locate without going overseas.The optics aren't quality grade and the camera itself seems fragile and of poor construction.

Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Quiet, Good Image Quality, Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD
Cons:
Other Comments: This is a great camera straight out of the box. I bought this for an upcoming vacation and I have taken about 200 practice photos indoors and out and i couldnt be happier. it has a great zoom which is one of the main reasons i bought the camera. It picks up colors great shoots good video as well. While recording video you are able to zoom in and out which is one thing that isnt in the description. Picture can get grainy if you zoom in to much but thats kinda typical with many cameras, but otherwise provides a good picture. There are tons of features to edit your pictures if need be so taking a bad picture is kinda hard. Some people complain about the lens cap being very loose and yes it is but when you power the camera on and you forget to take the lens cap off it pushes out with ease. Id rather it do that than stay stuck on and ruin the mechanics of the lens or something worse. IT has a manual flash button which is fine, just a quick push of a button and its ready, no biggie. Great LCD, very bright and clear. The viewfinder is good, i dont really use it since the lcd is there but it does have its uses i guess, i just havent used it, so i cant vouch for it to much. I like that the viewfinder sticks out and isnt flush with the lcd, because it sticks out it protects the lcd from damage. The weight is good, not heavy but not extremely light either. It comes with all the wiring/cd for hook up to your computer and tv for playback. I bought a 8gb memory with the camera and so far its great as well. Going through my images is really quick with no lag time, instant scrolling which i love. I just upgraded from a simple point and shoot olympus and i am extremely satisfied and cant wait to take tons of more pictures on vacation. The price was great and one of the lowest on the net through buydig. Shipping was pretty fast and completely trackable through fedex, so it was a great transaction, and would highly recommend them. I hope this review helps, i know i read these reviews and they helped me alot when buying this camera. Great camera overall, cherry on top woulda been a nice carrying case, which im on the hunt for, but i am very happy with the camera.

5 out of 5 stars   Nice size, quality images stable images
By JoeinTampa on August 25, 2010
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Pentax X90 26x Zoom Digital Camera (PKX90)
Pros: Short Lag Time, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Good in Low Light, Good Image Stabilization
Cons:
Other Comments: I have pushed the 26x zoom in low light and found it stable, but grainy. That was a test--not a fault. The image stabilization has really surprised me. I have gotten clear photos at early dusk using the fully extended optical zoom (I don't use digital zoom). Battery life seems strong, but I bought a backup battery. I often take a lot of pictures of documents, using the camera as copier in genealogy research. Very happy with the Pentax X90. My previous digital cameras have all been Canon, but I decided to try Pentax. Glad I did.

Review submitted for Pentax X90 26x Zoom Digital Camera (PKX90)
Pros: Great Zoom, Good Image Stabilization
Cons: Difficult color correctio, Flimsy body, No protection for screen
Other Comments: Manual is well written and easy to understand. Camera comes with a proprietary chargeable lithium battery, no spares, can't use ordinary batteries. Photos have a greenish color cast - difficult to find out why or to correct this. Pictures of waterfalls not as good as expected, white water is too white, even when "snow" mode is selected

Pros: Short Lag Time, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Good Image Stabilization, Nice Body Color
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: This is an excellent camera. The one issue I would have is that it is the short battery life - gets about 250 photo's. The battery does charge quickly but it can be an hassle. Over all I would say thta it is a great product.
