Customer Reviews of Pentax MX-1 Classic Design Compact 12MP Digital Camera with 4x Zoom Lens, 3-inch LCD Tilt Screen, 1920X1080 HD Video, Shake Reduction (SR) - Silver
Very nice camera9/5/2013
This is an extremely well made attractive looking camera that offers excellent image quality. I've been taking pictures at iso 400 that are sharp, detailed and noise free (I haven't tested iso 800 yet). The colors are punchy yet accurate. The lens is fast and high quality. My only gripe is the write time to the card when shooting RAW: I wish it were faster (I'm used to dslr write speeds).
