Summary: DO NOT PURCHASE A CAMERA FROM THIS COMPANY. I have a Pentax K-x that seemed to work great, but it went through batteries (AA) like nobody's business. Then I found out that there was a firmware update available. I followed the support website's instructions for applying the update TO THE LETTER. The firmware update turned my camera into a brick. Calling Ricoh support was no help. It was MY FAULT for bricking my camera. I didn't have to apply the firmware update.
Summary: Used this camera for the first time yesterday... I guess I need to read the manual because I didn't know how to adjust the ISO when taking shots... got it down only to 400, I really wanted to shoot at 100.
Summary: As a girl who want to have a beautiful DSLR, this one is a really good choice for me. It is not too big. It has a fancy design and a really nice color. What's more, it is easy to use and can help you take high-quality photos. To be honest, since we are not professional photographers, we do not really need very good DSLRs. Therefore, why not buy a nice-looking one?
Summary: We have had this camera now for over 3 years and have taken thousands of photo's. We absolutely love it. Not only is it nice to look at but it takes great pictures and great videos (in good light).
Summary: I was an imaging professional during my working career own mostly Nikon systems at home and Canons in the office. Two years ago, I needed to decide on a new DSLR for my own personal (travel and daily) use. After much researches, I settled on this Pentax which gave me the features and price point I wanted. This was a very basic (entry level) DSLR, but for traveling and casual photography, it produced outstanding imageries that made me happy.
