Summary: Used this camera for the first time yesterday... I guess I need to read the manual because I didn't know how to adjust the ISO when taking shots... got it down only to 400, I really wanted to shoot at 100.
Excerpt: I owned a K-x for just over a year. At the time the K-r was rather well featured for an entry level DSLR it has a solid strong spec which is clearly a cut above most other makers at this price point Lots of things to get stuck into the K-x actually has a more mid level spec compared to most other...
Summary: I bought this camera just before leaving on a two-week photographic tour through nine states, and it's the first DSLR I've used. I read the 315-page manual, but wish there was more detail to it.
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: Although this camera is considered an entry level DSLR camera, it has a lot of features found on more advanced cameras. Pentax does not seem to have the name recognition of a couple of the other big camera makers, but I have found this camera to be an excellent value for the price.
Summary: I bought a Pentax K-x with the 18-55 and 50-200mm lenses for $539.It was a really great deal. This is my first DSLR camera. I have always just had a point and shoot camera and boy is there a difference.There is so much to learn and the manual will be your best friend if you do not have any prior...
Summary: I'm a first time DSLR user and did a lot of research. I came down to the penatx and a cannon, I ended up getting the pentax and couldn't be happier. It's set up really well for first time DSLR users and the manual was actually readable.
