20 March 2015
  • Summary: The Pentax K-x is squarely aimed at the entry-level market. It's one of the smallest on the market, and it's ideal for any photographer who prefers to travel light. Pentax has designed a camera that's easy to use and feels solid and well built. But how does it compare to its rivals?

What Digital Camera
14 December 2009
  • Summary: The Pentax K-x manages to offer plenty of functionality in a small package, and produces images of a high standard. As a beginner’s camera it provides plenty to explore, while equally it wouldn’t be out of place as backup to a more expensive model, given its portability.
  • Pros: Plenty of useful features, easy and fun to use, AA batteries available everywhere
  • Cons: No illumination of AF points, menu system a little dated, no rubberised thumb-rest

PC Actual
4 May 2010
  • Excerpt: A primera vista, aparenta estar en el segmento bajo de este tipo de cámaras SLR compactas y económicas. De todos modos, tras realizar las pruebas de imagen y dar un «paseo» por sus opciones de configuración, la valoración subjetiva deja paso a una más objetiva de aspectos como la calidad de los...
  • Pros: Calidad de imagen, Obturador hasta 1/6000, Multi exposición, Retoque en la cámara, Velocidad de las ráfagas (4,7 fps) ISO hasta 12.800, Estabilización en el sensor
  • Cons: Alimentación mediante pilas AA estándar, Puntos de enfoque no seleccionables en el visor, Acabado muy plástico

  • Cons: Нет индикации точки срабатывания автофокуса в видоискателе, Кнопки навипада слишком сглаженные, плохо читаются на ощупь, Неповоротный монитор ограничивает возможности режима «Live view», Нет брекетинга по балансу белого

  • Pros: Svært raskt, et hav av funksjoner, meget god bildekvalitet
  • Cons: Mangler fokusindikasjon i søkeren
