Mine was defective...could possibly be a design flaw
16 February 2010
Summary: Between speeds of 1/60s to 1/120s (and others, though not as visible) my sample could not take sharp images. It would take mostly sharp images at 1/30s, and sharp images at 1/250s. I also noticed demosaicing artifacts in images as well, although I think that's just the way the camera is.
Summary: In short, awesome camera. Have used Sony's and Nikons before, this bowls them over. Canon DSLR have nicer depth perceptions in outdoor situattion at lower ISOs, but the clarity of picture taken by this think is simply mind blowing. You cannot lose with this. More updates coming soon...
Summary: The K-x is my first DSLR and I did a ton of research before purchasing it. In general I love it. The image quality fabulous. The auto-focus is fast. I love that I can buy old manual lenses for it that are super cheap. I bought a 50mm 1.7 for it that produces wonderful portraits.
Summary: I am an avid reader of reviews and many times use this information to help in my buying decision. Since I suppose I am like most others who shop, compare, read, read some more and still can't decide I hope this might help in your quest for the right camera.
Summary: Pros: excellent hi iso quality, aa-type batteries, a great deal of old, but still good pentax lenses, small and lite weight, 720p HD video. Cons: no af point highlight, veeery slow focusing in live view. All in all, excellent offer for it's price, especially double kit (18-55 and 55-300).
Summary: This camera is loads of fun, and it comes in different colors too. I have the beautiful blue metallic. This is my second Pentax camera, the first being an ME Super that I still own. We have been using a variety of point and shoots-- Nikon being the current one-- then I bought our son a Nikon D40x.
Summary: Pros: Excellent value for money. Huge array of in-camera digital filters. 2 modes of RAW. Compatible with wide range of lenses. 720P video capture. Good auto focus. Body-built shake reduction system. E asy availability of AA batteries. One of the smallest entry level DSLR in the market.
Summary: I started with photography by using a Pentax K1000 and that was the last SLR I bought. I've owned a myriad of point and shoot digitals and have played around with digital SLRs. After MONTH AND MONTHS of research I chose this one and I have never looked back.
Summary: I have the Pentax K2000 which is a NO nonsense No frills DSLR camera. It takes outstanding photos!!!!...That's what it was made for!...No video...Just photos!!!...I made the upgrade to the new Pentax KX about a month ago & couldn't be more pleased!!!...This DOES do video!!!..
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.
