    Donny-
    Can you tell us more? You've posted on a forum for digital SLRs. This isn't a digital SLR Is it? Is it even a digital camera? I checked the Pentax digital camera reviews here and can't find that camera. Here's a link to all Pentax digital cameras listed on the site: http://www.photographyreview.com/sf-...ctlistcrx.aspx

    Thanks, Frog. I moved this thread to Help Files. And as for buying a 13 year old 35mm point-and-shoot, I'd probably pass. Of course, it depends on your budget and the price of the camera. But that's pretty old for a point-and-shoot camera. If it's a 35mm P&S someone is after, I'd recommend the Olympus Stylus Epic. It's inexpensive, a classic and an absolute jewel!

    Note: I'm referring to the non-zoom version of the camera. It's the winner. The Stylus cameras with zoom lenses aren't even close. The Olympus Stylus Epic has been the secret weapon of many pro photographers.
