Question about Pentax Optio S6 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Exposure Control I have an Optio S6 that I accidentally dropped into a building's girder while doing Kite Aerial Photography. From that point on I've gotten very poor exposures. Out at a beach the photos were totally black. There are only some small nicks right above the flash, but my guess it was a pretty good hit. I took it to a Pentax Repair Center but the cost of repair equalled the cost of a new camera. I hate to just throw it out, any suggestions?

    Yeah, I've heard of that solution before but that wont work in this case. No insurance on this. My g/f says I should take it apart. Then I'll know for sure if I should throw it out.

I have had both a Olympus and a Fujifilm and when i got a quote to get fixed the quote was more than the camera was worth so i claimed insurance and upgraded to the next model for under $100

    I claimed the cameras under my extended household insurance and when I dropped one of the cameras it worked fine but I had to manually pull the lens out that was the part the took the hit and it worked fine for another three months then gave up
