Good solid camera.

Adam Sitterding, Amazon

  • Summary: Very good camera. I would give it 5 stars with a better lens and flash. The kit lens is lame. Can't wait to buy a better one. Stock flash seems to be too bright sometimes and not bright enough other times. Inside shooting can be frustrating. Speed of shooting is fantastic! Love the weatherproofing!

  • Summary: An exceptional camera with lots of features. I'm still learning on how to use all of the features. The manual mode works well for me and automatic mode is fun to use and requires little thinking.

Great camera with a terrible product description

  • Summary: I haven't had many chances to use the camera but what I have been able to do with it so far I am very happy with. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars it that the description states that the camera is weather sealed.

Nice DSLR well worth the cost

  • Summary: Purchased as a gift for my daughter, Price was right as a discontinued model. After buying it price came down on the K50. Had I known would have gotten it. But the K30 is a great camera. Does most everything the K50 does and almost everything the K5 does.

  • Excerpt: Pentaxist since my Spotmatic bought in 1970, I tried my son's K5 and the outstanding IQ and handling made me decide to upgrade my old Ist-DS to a K30. The K30 IQ and low light performance are identical to the K5. The handling is very close, the autofocus and the processor rather faster.

Almost 5 stars, but...

Newbie to DSLR

Gin52, Amazon

  • Summary: I chose this camera because of the good reviews. I did not want to spend hundreds more when I am just starting to learn the basics. Camera takes fabulous pictures, settings were easy to learn, and I couldn't be happier with the photos I have taken so far.

Just as ordered!

  • Summary: The Camera is exactly as per my order, with 100% satisfaction. It was delivered as per the date. However, the delivery service just left the camera on the porch without knocking or ringing doorbell. I am just luck I noticed it there after a few hours and it was not stolen.

Great camera and package

ACD, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: The Pentax k30 is a solid entry level dslr camera. I bought this recently and it arrived quickly as promised. I was a little bummed that the 18-55mm lens was not weather sealed like the camera (it kind of makes the weather sealing of the camera pointless unless I buy a new lens), but all in all,...
