Advantages: 200 mm zoom, good design and looks Disadvantages: Pictures can on occasions lack sharpness, can be difficult to use
...massively outweighed the cons and I ended up exchanging my cash for this camera.
Like most cameras of this price the Pentax 200 Zoom has a normal flash (apart from the fact that the flash pops out from the side of the camera when the camera is initially turned on) band a red eye reduction flash along with DX coding, automatic exposure, automatic film transport and self timer...
Advantages: tight compositions at long distances Disadvantages: easy blur at 200mm;dim viewfinder;fat & ugly
...speed. You must either use ASA 400 film or have a tripod rest for the camera to assure sharp pictures...even on sunny days. To shoot at 200mm setting with ASA 100 film & without a tripod during a cloudy day will assure blurry pix. With care tho, 200mm pix give much sharpness & pleasure.
The Pentax 200 viewfinder is darker than most other P&S digital or film cameras. Picture taking at dawn, dusk...
Advantages: very little camera, very light, easy to carry Disadvantages: not made to take pictures very close

You don't have any idea how hard was taking pictures of my german shepard playing with the ball.To me...my dog was playing but to him was just a matter of time to make a hole, yeah and than looking and saying in his language...now you have to buy another one, because this one already gone...how about that?
I did use a Pentax PC-33, and a black and white film...
