Pentax has made digital photography easy with this camera. It has 2.5 inch LCD screen, 6 mega pixels, and 3x optical zoom. In addition to this there are several ready set functions for portraits, black and white, landscapes etc.

I have to admit that I both love and hate this camera. The huge LCD screen works great in good light, but since there's no "peek-hole", photography at night time can be very difficult as you cannot see the object in the LCD screen. Also battery life is very short, but if you get researchable batteries this is not so much an issue.

The picture quality is good at a distant, up close the pictures often turns out failed, the same with small objects. The optical zoom comes in handy, but this camera is best for general picture-taking.

It's very easy to learn how to use, and has a wheel to choose which picture option you want. Optio S60 also records video and sound, which is a nice feature.

If you need a camera mostly for travel etc. this camera is pretty good. For up-close photography however it disappoints.
