Excerpt: I have had the KX for almost a year now and I can say after owning a Pentax 200d,this camera has it all!!! I love the High ISO/Low Noise pictures I am getting with it. The white "Stormtrooper" model I have,has people stopping me and wanting one :) Have not used the movie mode much but it's nice to...
Summary: This is one of the best buys I have made on Amazon. I love this camera. It was a great deal with both lenses.The build is nice,the red color is a plus, people ask about about it and I get to tell them how great Pentax cameras are. Pentax is underrated big time.
Excerpt: I have a Canon 450D and side-by-side shooting the same scene in RAW, the Pentax K-x produces a richer image with better dynamic range. The Canon image burns out on contrast the Pentax gives beautiful colours. Since image quality rules, that settles it.
Summary: I purchased this exact camera about a year ago, as a birthday present to myself. I took classes in our high school for three years, for Black & White film photography. Towards the end of the third year, we were able to start learning a little about digital photography.
Summary: I think my interest in DSLR photographer came from wanting better quality shots than what a P&S can produce (though I admit had I known how bad a high ISO was for image quality I may not have ever made the plunge to DSLR).
Summary: As a novice photographer at best, this is the perfect camera. Are there better cameras out there? Of course. With more options? You bet. But this has everything I need and more. Just nice everyday pictures. I'm not making money with this thing, I'm just using it to take pictures.
Summary: Updated: 8/2/11 - Ever since selling the T2i, I've become adept with the k-x especially because of its outstanding handling and features. And even now after owning a new Canon 60D (for its swivel screen), I still cannot let go of the k-x!
Summary: I have been using this camera for the past 2 years now and it has never failed to deliver - whether I am shooting landscapes, portraits or just plain walk-around shots. Just a few of the things I like most: - Value for money - no other camera provides the combination of features, quality and price...
Summary: I upgraded to my first dslr and after much research chose the Pentax kx. What sold me was that this package came with an additional lens and the fact the camera uses AA batteries. So far I have been very pleased.
