Great Digital SLR Camera

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Pentax K100D in 2006 as a means for photographing my own artwork as a professional artist. It has served its purpose well, however, I think I needed to get a better lens for my detail shots. I would definately recommend this to someone who wants to take pictures but I would say the Pentax K100D is not the best for the professional photographer.

Pentax K100D

collegestudent_10, Ebay

  • Summary: This camera was listed in my course requirement for my photography appreciation class. What I liked about this camera is that it took good pictures and it was easy for me to find all the options in the menu. It was manageable. What I didn't like about it is that the camera adjusted the white balance by itself and when taking pictures, it came out dark. I am trying to figure out how to fix that. Beside, overall review about the camera is that I enjoyed using it!

Pentax K100D Camera

hogbert6691, Ebay
1 March 2011
  • Summary: I have used Pentax camera equipmet for 39 years. The most amazing thing is that I can still use the special lenses I purchased for my Spotmatic back in 1972 on the digital bodies I purchase today. This has also allowed me to buy older pentax equiipment on E-bay at a relatively low price and take advantage of the great Pentax lens legacy. I now own a K100D and used it on a recent vacation in Hawaii. I got great images of sunrises and sunsets, tropical flowers and birds.

Very good camera

  • Summary: This K100D is a great step up from the point and shoot cameras. The extra features and possible camera adjustments provide the option of mimicking professional photography. Not a duplication . Ease of operations, along with the built in shake reduction make this an easy camera to shoot, and get good results. There are better cameras available for a lot more money. Remember more money does not make more honey.

A good camera for the money

William Bradley, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace my venerable Pentax K1000 film camera. I chose it because the K body will accept the lenses from my old camera, which it does quite well. The camera is nicely ergonomic and fits well in the hand. All the controls are easy to get to with the possible exception of the focus mode switch which is hidden on the front. Pictures are excellent under almost all conditions. I do have some reservations though.

Overall good but picture quality could be better.....

  • Summary: I had Pentax *ist DS before and it broke so I decided to buy something similar but a little bit more advanced. The Pentax K100D was an obvious choice. Having similar dimentions and layour of the controls, it is just feels right in your hands. The camera is compact and filled with useful features. My only dissapointment was some pictures came out with a lot of grain.

  • Summary: I like Pentax. I've had them for a wile, but what I like the most is that you can mix the lens from one camera to another with out a problem. The quality is good and the price, better.

A Great Camera for the Price

cjs_rn, Ebay
10 April 2010
  • Summary: The K100D has a good, solid feel in my hand. The controls are fairly simple to use, and almost becomes a "point and shoot" camera for the novice. However, the more advanced user will find it possible to have a greater degree of creative control as well. Since I consider myself an advanced amateur who wants to become a much better photographer, this is an important consideration. The camera is also back compatible with any lens made to fit a Pentax camera body.

  • Excerpt: I found this camera with the kitlens on a carbooth sale in the UK, almost burried between the kuddly bears and the teacups. Nicely in the orriginal boxes, and even the receipt was included in the box.
  • Pros: Easy to handle, Excelent learner Cam
  • Cons: Loud, ISO lowest 200

Happy so far

Andy, North Carolina, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought the K100D Super to use with my Pentax lenses from a ZX-30 35mm camera(also a great camera). After about a month of use, I am very happy so far. Huge difference in image quality and flexibility over my old HP Photosmart 730. Color and shapness are great and LCD screen is easy to see, even in sunlight. Have used a 300mm zoom and 2x converter on wildlife and pics are excellent. Would give it 5 stars, except I have only had it a month.
