No more Pentax for me ever again!

Jessica, Amazon

  • Summary: I regret buying this camera. I would only recommend this to beginners learning a dslr but even to that I would say don't waste your money. I am a wedding photographer and the Canon 6d puts it to shame. Also, the first wedding I shot with the Pentax k30 it was 3months old and it blew a circuit board!

  • Summary: light is not powerful enough for my dark house. colors are not true. actually, they are way off! however it is a sturdy water resistant camera probably great for camping and outdoor activities. kind of on the heavy side though. maybe mine just didn't work correctly.

Piece of junk

G. Engolia "G", Amazon
2 June 2013
  • Summary: This camera is so unreliable and I am disgusted with it at this point. A little bit of background on me: I'm an event/portrait photographer and started out using the k-x. The k-x NEVER gave me problems and I've had it for years. It wasn't even one of their new models when I bought it.

Kregg Everett, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: We bought this as a Christmas present (early, obviously) and now see that ALL of the charging and interfacing components are wrong! We are outside of the return policy window, but we don't want to return it - we love the camera - we just need the right components! PLEASE SOMEONE HELP US HERE!

Not a great experience

28 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for travelling, as it is weather sealed and is described as light and compact(for a dslr)The camera was certainly light, but the build quality felt really cheap, and in the hand it actually felt quite bulky.

Déçu mais par qui?

treebeard, Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: Bonjour, j'ai acheté ce Pentax K30 sur le site marchand AMAZON, qui proposait le tarif le moins élevé pour cet appareil (d'une belle finition, léger, bonne prise en main, agréable, toutes options, bref j'adore), le problème est que celui ci est arrivé avec des poussières sur le capteur et qu'au bout...
