Everyone will ask you where you bought this cutie!

  • Summary: I have been having K-x(White) for about a year and used it almost every day. 1) Design : It's prettier than pictures. If you are already a fan of Pentax camera, you will be in love with K-x.It's even better. The first thing I worried before I bought K-x was whether the paint comes off easy. But, it's still pretty as I first bought. The paint is pretty strong. 2) Weight : If it is your second purchase of DSLR, you would be sick of carrying a heavy camera.

Great Camera! Amazing Price!!!!!

  • Summary: I've been looking to get a entry level DSLR camera for some time now and i finally settled with this Pentax over the Cannon rebels. My main reason was the price and because of what everyone has said about how amazing this camera is. I don't know half of the features on it yet but from what i've done with it so far i'm very impressed. It takes beautiful pictures. I paid $580 for this camera and it came with the white 18-55mm and black 50-200mm lenses.

The Clone Trooper Strikes Back

  • Summary: I love, love, love this camera. Lots of bang for the buck. If you are looking for a professional quality camera, you may want to keep looking, but this is definitely the real deal. I prefer auto focus to manual (the manual can be a little slow). This camera has the easiest, most comprehensive instruction manual of any I've ever seen. Since I am still learning the art of photography, I keep my book with me at all times.

Takes great photos sometimes...

Peanut Mommie, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this camera for my husband for Christmas because he said he wanted it and because we were expecting our first baby and wanted a high quality camera to capture our first memories. The camera takes really nice quality photos but only half of the time. The other half of the time, the photos are blurry. We've had it over a year now and in the beginning it was great with indoor photos and almost brightened up the pictures more so than a compact digital camera would.

Good camera

Dhiraja "DDDD", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very good camera. A tad bit heavy but most D-SLR cameras are. The Electronic Viewfinder is decent, not as good as compared to the Panasonic G10. The colors on pictures taken with this camera is very good. The colors come out very bright and crisp. I am a novice in taking pictures but I experience good pictures with people but excellent pictures taking scenery. This is an all around great camera. Takes great pictures at High ISO so there is no need for flash.

User Review

Photography Review
3 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought my KX used in 1977. It was my second 35mm SLR (after using an old Praktica for a few years), and I have literally taken tens of thousands of photos with it. I was only 14 when I bought it, and it was really a top-of-the-line 35mm at that time. As a school newspaper and yearbook photographer, I got a ton of experience using the KX and it was an ideal camera for a student photographer.
  • Pros: Absolute reliability. Built like a tank. Superb metering, huge selection of compatible lenses, including the wonderful Pentax SMC line. Also, any Prakica/Pentax screw mount lens is easily adaptable to this camera. The only, minor, fault that I can think of for this camera is that it's exposure meter uses up batteries relatively quickly, but as the batteries are cheap and readily available, this is of minor consequence. Best of all, KX's are common today and inexpensive.
  • Cons: The aforementioned tendency to use up batteries quickly--hardly a liability. I also would have liked a split image focusing screen, but in practical terms, I never found the existing focusing aids to present any sort of liability. A great, great, camera.
