The E70 can record VGA-quality (640x480-pixel resolution) Motion JPEG video. But the quality isn't good for the most part, and the optical zoom doesn't function while recording. It's sufficient for small Web videos, but little else.

If you're willing to spend slightly more money, you can get a camera with more features and possibly better photo quality and performance than the Pentax Optio E70. But, if all you need is a convenient, attractive and straightforward ultra-compact camera for taking snapshots, the E70 should suffice.
