Summary: After 2 years of use the camera is still working great. It was used in a variety of environments, ranging from freezing cold to jungle tracks, ocean sailing and mountainbiking, always carried on the shoulder strap or inside a backpack. Solid, light and efficient.
Summary: First, I have to say I'm an amateur photographer, so I was in the fence when the moment of buying an dslr came, I did a lot of research to finally decide and give this camera a chance. I investigated canons and nikons, but finally I came to the conclussion that this is the BEST camera in this price range for the features it has. I love taking pictures with the pentax kx, they come out very polished and with a great quality.
Summary: I have had my Pentax k-x for about 6mos now. I absolutely LOVE it! I researched cameras & consumer reviews for a good 6mos prior to purchasing. I was impressed with the overall good reviews on this camera,& it's price (which has gone up since my purchase). My camera has the white body & 200zoom - perfect for sports photos! I get tons of compliments on its look (which is accented by a black/white damask print camera strap)..
Excerpt: I've had a K100D, a K20D and now a K-x. I've been using the K-x almost exclusively ever since, and sold both other cameras. The image quality is excellent, the ISO range is excellent, the compactness and weight is excellent. When paired with my DA 35 f/2.4 it feel like I'm toting a compact.
Pros: Size, Image Quality, Focus Accuracy, Low Light Shooter, Video
Summary: I have owned my Pentax K-x white body for some time now. I took it on Med Cruise last Oct/Nov and then put together MyPublisher large photo books using Lightroom 2.0 as my editor. The photos are FANTASTIC!! I get raves whenever I show the book to people. The camera did a great job with excellent image quality. The K-x is easy to use and very user friendly. Recently, I bought a new Nikon D5100 and although it is an excellent camera, I still love my Pentax.
Summary: Despues de probar la camara por varios dias , e visto que es muy buena camara , y me costo mucho mas barata que en mi pais. me gusta como funciona , es comoda y practica. pude conseguir un manual en español que me a ayudado a manejarla mejor .y cada dia aprendo mas sobre ella. estoy muy satisfecho con esta compra.
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 know it;s there in a pinch t.
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. Cost less the Cannon and Nikon and more features to compatible models. The thing that is great is the amount of old film lens you can buy cheap. They can be used no manual focus but the stabilizer does work.
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. Combined with good lenses, I love it - especially the Pentax prime lenses. However there is a list of flaws: 1.
