The pentax Optio M10 is a very simple lightweight digital camera with some interesting features but also some limitations. It weighs a lot less than many standard cameras and has a 6.0 Megapixel resolution, 3x optical zoom, a SD card insert and a decent flash option.
The menu is also quite good and very intuitive to use. Many different modes are present which automatically ajust the camera's settings so that the picture turns out quite good. In my year of experience with this camera (although I do not use it too often), I've used several of these options with mixed results. The "kids" mode for instance, I did not ind too good because it increases the time of exposure too much and if the children are not perfectly still, the pictures end up blured. Other options are quite good though. I've enjoyed so far the landscape mode which does brighten out the colors and makes out door pictures look stunning.
Scrolling through pictures previously taken is quite intuitive and the screen does allow me to see in decent detail how they will look like when printed out. In this mode, deleting pictures is also easy by just pressing the trash bin button at the bottom right of the camera.
The pictures in general seem ok. It actually depends a lot on the options chosen but there are many camera's out there which take more realistic photos (even 6 Mega pixel cameras).
Connecting to the computer is something I haven't tried out. I generally take the SD card out, which is located near the batteries, and insert it into my laptop's SD card port. Nonetheless, removing and inserting the SD card is quite straightforward.
Overall, the camera is OK but not fantastic. You'll find better on the market for the same price, but you will also find worse. overall a standard 6MP camera.
