Pentax K-x review

DP Review
2 May 2010
  • Conclusion: I replaced a swag of sony dslr''s with the first of a number of these units, i found it simple to use given i got a japanese instruction book with it not english, a short scroll though the screens and it was set up the way i wanted it and quickly as well.
  • Pros: I replaced a swag of sony dslr''s with the first of a number of these units, i found it simple to use given i got a japanese instruction book with it not english, a short scroll though the screens and it was set up the way i wanted it and quickly as well. Image straight from the camera is better ...

The right choice for me

Joe T., Newegg
28 April 2010
  • Summary: To the person (#62 The Home Edition) who purchased the extended warranty. According to the warranty contract, you have 60 days to cancel the warranty and receive a refund. If you have a bone to pick, it should be with the warranty company and not newegg.
  • Pros: Great Camera, Great Price! I did a lot of online research prior to deciding on the K-X. I narrowed my list to 5 entry level dslr's with comparable specifications. I read exhaustive and several reviews on the Nikon 5000D, Olympus Evolt E620 (almost chose that one) the Pentax K-7 and two entry leve...

Great DSLR for amature

D. Campbell, Amazon
25 April 2010
  • Summary: I love my new camera, the Pentax KX. I use the camera with the accompanying 18-55 mm zoom lens as well as lenses from my old Pentax SLR with great results with each lens. I had resisted making the move to digital for years because I liked the comfort of knowing what I would get with my film SLR...

User Review

Peter Zack, Photography Review
22 April 2010
  • Summary: This is an excellent camera and I can only mirror the comments of the previous review. For the person moving up from a Point and shoot style camera, the controls will seem familiar. For someone that wants the typical DSLR controls, they are all there, including complete manual controls.
  • Pros: Pros:, Very good and easily understood manual. Although it could use a better index., Easy user interface and menus, Simple and straightforward button layout, Fast shutter mechanism and excellent Fps., Very good AF in most light sources., AWB is greatly improved over previous models. Very good ad...
  • Cons: Cons:, Green Button difficult to activate for bigger hands., No AF LED’s in veiwfinder., Menu resets to first page on exit and should reopen on last page viewed., Should have accessory grip available as an option even if only for spares storage., Bright or direct sun makes viewing VF data difficu...

More than worth the money!

W. Haney, Amazon
21 April 2010
  • Summary: As much as I would have loved to have a high-end SLR, I just wasn't looking to spend that much money. I'd rather use the extra money for lenses. The K-x had gotten good reviews and was still twice the megapixels of my present camera. I love how light weight it is!

K-X WOW

JOHN D., Newegg
19 April 2010
  • Pros: I DID NOT PURCHASE AT NEWEGG LIKE I NORMALLY DO, BUT THIS CAMERA EXCEEDED MY EVERYTHING I WANTED AND MORE. IT'S A TRUE SLR BUT ALSO HAS POINT AND SHOOT CAPABILITIES. WITH BOTH LENS I'M ENJOYING PICTURES I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD TAKE.

K-x vs K100d

Warren Steffey, Amazon
16 April 2010
  • Summary: I have used a K100d for several years and been very happy with the camera. I wanted to upgrade to more pixels and faster burst speed, but did not want to obsolete the lens, flash and other accessories I had accumulated.

Camera 4 eggs, Newegg none...

Raph D., Newegg
15 April 2010
  • Summary: I don't know if Newegg treats private accounts different from businesses... this is only one of a few times for me at the personal level. I had hoped they would find a resolution for me (short of returning it all) but, after multiple calls, they insist their wording is not their probelm.
  • Pros: Lightweight, good low-light shooting. Still getting used to camera so I seem to really like it sometimes and am really unsure at others... reserving judgement until more experienced with it. Good price. Love the long lens.
  • Cons: Caution: Warranty is not what it appears to be!!! When buying the camera, I clicked Extended Warranty Available... Expand. An option for a 3 year Warranty appears. When I look at the warranty after purchase it is only for 2 years after manufacturer warranty. The Warranty is *NOT* for 3 years afte...

2nd Pentax DSLR

George M. Bosela, Amazon
15 April 2010
  • Summary: I have owned a Pentax K100D for over three years and acquired several additional lenses. Building on my earlier investments was important to me. While I have not really explored all the new features of my K-x, these are my initial reactions. The Kx is marginally smaller.
