Great entry level DSLR

Larry Kregen, Amazon
16 June 2010
  • 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.

Love this camera!

  • 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!

Incredible Value

Paul Boerger, Amazon

  • 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.

Pentax K-x - great camera

werner45, Amazon
31 May 2010
  • 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.

Surprising

M. Wilson, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • 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.

The Pentax K-x is a giant killer!

Edgar_in_Indy, Amazon
29 May 2010
  • Summary: I recently upgraded from my beloved Olympus e-510 DSLR with the 14-42mm and 40-150mm kits lenses in order to get a DSLR with better low-light performance and HD video capabilities. I loved my Olympus, but image quality took a nose-dive at ISO 800, and I liked the idea of having an HD camcorder built into my camera to capture high quality family photos and home videos in one device.

Awesome red camera

C. Alarcon "Master Uchual", Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: Who could think of a better colour for a SLR camera. Red definitely suits this little Pentax. Light and portable, yet powerful and full of good features. For the price, the D5000 of Nikon and the Rebel Xi from Canon are no match for this little wonder. I am just climbing up a steep (but fun) learning curve, but this does not prevent using the camera as a classy point and shoot. Highly recommended as a full-feature entry level DSLR.

Nice entry camera for those who want to start D-SLR

M. Davis "BigDawgOnR1", Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: The camera was so cool looking, I admit to buying D-SLR for the first time! I have zero expierience with D-SLR, so was eager to see what the camera would do for me that point and shoot would not. I can say, using this camera with the various settings gives you dramatic control over the picture shoot. And using photo sw, you can combine images to create cool pics. I'm a D-SLR convert!

Great photos, looks great, has limitations

Richard A. Carnes "Photostudent", Amazon
26 May 2010
  • Summary: Received item promply from Adorama. Fit and finish were beyond my expectations for the price of this camera. It has by far the most features of any camera in it's class, including HD video. It is compact but solid, actually a bit heavier than expected. 300 page manual, in small print, makes for a bit of a steep learning curve but Auto Pict mode can get you taking great photos right away. I would prefer more knobs rather than nested menus.

Colorful K-x is a pocket-rocket and not just for beginners!

M. Banas "panoguy", Amazon
20 May 2010
  • Summary: The Pentax K-x has become one of the most popular "entry-level" DSLRs for some very good reasons: it has excellent image quality and colors; it is compact without feeling like a toy; the "kit-lens" is actually quite good; and it is easy to use and understand without being restricted or "dumbed down.
