best CAMERA i ever have, compare with "Sony P100" i have using this carmera, for couple month and i also selling in my shop. Optio is a great line. Wait for the Optio A10 8M, but beware. out of focus I received this camera yesterday, and I am going to return it now. The exterior designe is nice in my opinion.

I bought a Pentax s55 without thinking too much. This camera is easy to use. As a " mature" novice I am currently trying several digicams. After doing a lot of research I bought this camera. I must say that this is an excellent liitle digicam.
