Pentax - EI-200 digital still camera

 

Of the big-name conventional camera makers, including Nikon, Canon, Olympus and Minolta, Pentax is one of the last to enter the 'new' digital market. The Pentax EI-200 is a midrange model with some interesting innovations. Top ...

The Pentax EI-200 is certainly not a bad camera, but there are better choices from other manufacturers for around the same price. Must try harder.

The Pentax EI-200 is identical to the Hewlett-Packard Photosmart C618 in all important aspects. I own a C618 and so this review might be useful for those of you considering the Pentax, which I believe sells for substantially more through specialty...

great camera

 

I love this camera. I finally got tired of wasting money on film and pictures that didn't turn out. It took about 1 month of research to find this camera.

Great Camera but something is missing

 

Photography is a hobby of mine. In addition to being a hobby, occasionally I need to take product photos for literature, and our companies web site.

Great pictures, ease of use, great feel, great lens

You need to spend extra$$ for a rechargable battery, and larger Compact Flash card, and the manual sucks.
