Summary: First off, I'm not going into a full review of this camera, as that was done very well by several other reviewers. I will however, list the immediate pros and cons. Pros: 4.7 fps continuous shooting, excellent low light capability, excellent value. Cons: Biggest problem with this camera in my opinion, is the LCD screen. Works fine for the menus, but when you playback an image, the screen resolution is obviously not high enough.
Summary: We just got back from a Disney Vacation, and it took wonderful pictures. All the Disney employees remarked how they loved the color, and they loved the pictures it took. This is the best camera we have ever owned, and we have had quite a few!
Summary: I have shot Canons and Nikons of various levels and bang for the buck you cannot get a better value than the Kx. The high ISO is astounding, comparable to cameras costing three and four times as much. Entry level does not do the Kx justice. The Kx compares very well to far more expensive cameras in features and image quality. Get it.
Summary: I've had this camera a little over a month and love it. I carried it on vacation and took about 200 pictures with it. The pictures are very crisp and clear. It copies the images to the memory card fast and it does well in low light. It feels very sturdy and is easy to hold with one hand. I really like how I can use many of my old manual focus Pentax K Mount lenses. A big warning though, use Pentax brand K mount lenses only.
Summary: Other reviews here will provide you with in-depth information, and I won't disagree with them. All that I'll say is that I never thought I'd get as much use out of this camera as I have. "These DSLRs are so huge compared to my regular point-and-shoot that I'm certain I'll only ever use this for special occasions, such as weddings..." Not true.
Excellent Camera with fantastic package for beginners.

Summary: This is my first dSLR purchase and I am really happy about my choice. I read several reviews and settled on this fabulous genius camera. For this price $720ish you get 300mm telephoto lens as well. I shot some low light pictures and it came out extremely well. I bought these to go with the camera: Bag: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00009R6TA/ref=oss_T15_product 52mm UV filter: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001LMU76I/ref=oss_T15_product 52mm CP filter:...
The best entry level DSLR.....Features comparable to NikkonD90 for half the price

Summary: The entry-level DSLR market is flooded with hype, but the 12.4-megapixel Pentax K-x blasts all of the marketing shenanigans away with an overall awesome performance. This K-x, has a superb image quality resided at the core of the camera's existence, whether I shot in JPEG, RAW, or made a 720p HD video.
Summary: The Search Is On ------------------- One of the first things I do before making a major purchase is to comb the Internet for as many user and editorial reviews on the product that I can find. There is an up and down side to this. On one hand you get a nice feel of how good a product may or may not be. On the other hand you can go crazy with TMI (too much information).
Summary: I was in market for a mid level DSLR for about a year. I bought Canon Rebel T1i before purchasing this model. After keeping the Rebel for two months, I decided to go back to market. Here is in short my take on the comparison between Rebel and K-x: 1.) K-x is much faster 2.) K-x takes better pictures in dark rooms. (way better than canon) 3.) K-x is lighter and easy to handle 4.) Kit lens are larger 5.
Summary: Seems the time has come for a PENTAX. Being loyal to Canon and loving Nikon DSLRs, I just gave this new camera the chance and think its going to change the top list for the first time. So long, it has been a fight between Canon and Nikon, but now PENTAX got ready to go for it. My decision was made taking into account the price for what you get, and the rivals where Canon Xti and Xsi and Nikon D5000 and D3000, but think this PENTAX kit is a real rival if not better in...
