|I decided to buy the Optio E70 because I wanted a decent quality, but reasonably cheap compact camera. I am a first time digital camera user and it has been easy to operate this camera. I have only had it a couple of weeks but it works great so far.|

|Bought one for my wife I bought this little Pentax when my wife asked for a digital camera for her birthday. point and click I bought this as a replacement for an older pentax compact which had developed a fault after two years of regular use. Pentax Optio P70 Camera The camera is great value for money and is one of the few in this price range that offers the anti shake function. Great design but poor performance Slim & well built, good wide angle lens, design looks slick. But quite a few downsides.|
