Quick review of Pentax Optio A20

"I bought this camera a few months ago when my Sony Cyber shot got stolen. I find it really easy to use and It has great video and loads of extra features. The picture quality is brilliant. I would never go back to using a sony after using this. Great looking camera aswell.
