Great camera with lots of value at $179.00. I had concerns after reading internet reviews that it wasn't solidly made but with a flimsy and cheap plastic case and that it was a big camera. While it is bigger than most point-and-shoot digital cameras, because the hard plastic casing was made with a lighter material, it is extremely light-weight for the size. This was a wonderful surprise because I thought larger was heavier, especially with a 18X optical zoom. The buttons are extremely easy to use; menu, mode, frames, stiching several pictures together, review, edit, etc., are all at your fingertips and with two clicks, you are at that section. The big zoom is also fabulous as everything fits in your pocket. I am not a big techie so when the camera is easy for me, it's very consumer-friendly. Very pleased!
Noted is that my last cameras in the past three years were FujiFilm F70 EXR with 10X wide zoom and Olympus FE-330 with 5X zoom.

I thought it was just an ordinary digital camera to begin with until I saw what was available on other peoples cameras. Now I have to say it beats all of them hands down. Special menu items to handle every situation easily. A few years ago a camera this good would have cost thousands. I could not be more pleased. But now I have to be careful no-one steals it.

This is a perfect piece for the price. I really love taking panoramic pictures with this camera. Lighting is cool. $150 for 16 MP, this is a steal. No complains. D'nt try outside yet. But indoor pictures are coming out perfect so for.

HASH(0x9cb091c8) out of 5 stars Returned After One Day Jan. 9 2012

The Pentax RZ-18, just does not make it. The first shock is the battery charger is huge, no little plug-in like the Canon system. Second, camera feels very cheaply made, 95% plastic feel. But the deal killer is pictures! When I turn off the flash and just take pictures under the natural light; they all turned out orange!!!! I pulled out my Canon SD 1300, and there was no comparison. The Canon sensor grabs the available light and makes interesting pictures, sometimes they are great. But 100% orange washout by the RZ-18, I was re-packing it for return in 35 minutes.
