Excerpt: i would call myself fairly experienced, having a few years ago used a Minolta Dynax 35mm SLR, and then moving to a canon powershot superzoom. I've also had a friends old Canon 10D for the past month.
Excerpt: I have not experienced too much hassle with the LV. However, I want to mention that the auto focus is a little sluggish when shooting using LV. The internal computer is quick enough to "remember" where a good focus spot might have been while it racks through the barrel and whips back once it has determined there is no better focusing option. I like the speed of that.
Summary: This is my first DSLR camera. I have had a little experience using the one at the school where I work - a Canon that was much more expensive. This Pentax K-X is much better than the Canon. It is easier to use and the pictures are even better. My low light pictures of productions are MUCH better than any other camera ever used here! I have had a lot of fun using this so far. I am just beginning to learn all of the features.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Summary: I really like the multiple modes to fit any situation you may find yourself in. It is lightweight and doesn't feel like your lugging around a huge piece of equipment. So many features it is a lot to learn. Video doesn't have a long run time even with 8mg card.
Summary: From 35mm film user to K-x digital...what an experience! Plan to purchase several lenses. Over 1000 shots first day, showed great quality, real fun experience. Couldn't put it down. Read many reviews before buying, but none convinced me like owning my own and finding just how terrific this camera really is.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent image quality, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quality you can feel
Summary: I purchased the product as a gift, and the recipient loved it as soon as she unwrapped it. The color's awesome and unique(she gets compliments each time she uses it) and the camera comes with so many features that its a wonder how its sold at such a great price. She's had it for a few days now, but so far there have not been any complaints. Thanks again!
Summary: The camera came so fast and it was stunning looking, we got it in red, why not? It is definately not a camera that you can just use as a point and shoot, but it is also not intended to be. We like that the camera seems to allow for any and all kinds of shooting conditions however it will take some time to figure out all of the many settings and options..
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
