Summary: I bought this as a back up for the K-7. I shoot wildlife only. I know nothing about any other photography. But i find myself reaching for this sometimes. It is really an excellent camera for the price. I also want to comment on the excellent sensor in the camera.
Excerpt: tough to be negative about this very capable camera. Coming off a k10 which i gave to my son. lighter and easier to handle. I do miss the wheel in the front. As i find working the wheel in the back a bit ackward. Image quality is great!
Summary: I checked many on line reviews. For my purposes the K-x sounded fairly equal with the Nikon D-5000 (both sounded like they produce a better picture than the Canon T1i). Both cameras had a handful of negative reviews and handfuls of positives.
Summary: At first I was dissapointed. I had a hard time getting excelent pictures. Than I read the manual... and now I take awesome pictures with ease.
Pros: Amazing pictures. Lots & lots of features. Extra lens is AWESOME. RAW & HDR pictures are great.
Cons: **No RAW codect support for win-7 64bit. I contacted Pentax support & they told me that they don't have it and thats it! **LIVE VIEW is kinda useless **Newegg really needs to invest in some "FRAGILE" stickers. I cringe every time I see the UPS guy carry my expensive FRAGILE equipment without the ...
Excerpt: The viewfinder - excellent information, really a joy to use. While not the largest or brightest Pentax ever, the KX excells in focusing: the image pops into focus better than with any other Pentax I've used.
Summary: I received my camera and in a few minutes I was out shooting pictures and HD videos. I had went online and read up on the camera weeks leading up to the purchase, so I had some knowledge of the camera's setting. It is a great camera for the price.
Summary: The Camera is by far the best starter level DSLR on the market. Having used both the Cannon Rebel and the Nikkon D3000, I can say that the Pentax is the best. The only complaint I have is that the auto focus, particularly up close, takes forever to work.
Summary: I am not a picture person. I have never been the "point and shoot in my pocket at all times" kind of girl. I did decide that taking photographs might be something I could get into, however. I chose this camera for some features it has over others in the lower price range (mp, in-camera filters, LV).
