Still learning, but having fun. I love this camera.!!!
10 September 2014
Summary: Still learning the camera which may take a bit. but I love the pictures so far. The price was right. At first I went to look through the lens and it was all blurry so I though something was wrong. My friend said try putting on your glasses. Had to laugh, that was the problem using the view finder. My glasses. Thank you so much.
Summary: I have had a 40 year love affair with Pentax Cameras. Now I have one that will last for the rest of my life, and make up for my failing vision and less than steady hands. I will die happy and leave a legacy of photos for someone else to sort out!
Summary: It does the long-distance wildlife shots I bought it for. Though I use a tripod, the anti-shake can be better on full extension of the telephoto. My main complaint is that the zoom control is very "glitchy", touchy to control. I end up relying on cropping more than I had wanted to do, just to frame a shot.
Summary: I started photography with a Pentax Spotmatic 2. I loved that camera. Then I upgraded to Canon T90. When I went digital, I moved to Nikon. While the Canon and Nikons are great racehorses, racehorses can be finicky. I wanted a little circus pony of a camera. The Pentax fit the bill. It takes beautiful photos, the zoom is simply incredible and the customer service I receive from the seller is superb.
Summary: What I like about the Pentax X90 -Affordable -Comfortable to hold. -Easy to use. -Pictures are very good quality. -The Zoom Feature. -Buttons are in the right places. The BEST Advice is; Use it and keep your manual handy. Be patient as you learn how to use this camera. You'll most likely be impressed with all that it does. It's not a thousand dollar camera with changeable lenses.

Summary: I have finally outgrown my beloved Kodak ZD710 and wanted to move up to a camera with a higher zoom. I have bought and returned another Kodak z980, a GE 15X and a Fujifilm S4000. The Kodak Z980 was o.k. but it was one big hunk of plastic, cheap feeling and clunky. The GE had the worst pictures. Very blurred @ high resolution. The Fujifilm was the biggest disappointment. It was huge compared to my ZD710 and not user friendly at all.
Summary: I did a lot of research to find a hybrid camera - one with the features of SLR, and the convenience of a digital point-and-shoot. Some of my photographer friends helped me learn some terminology and made recommendations, but in the end, I had to make my own decision. The Pentax X-90 has the features you'd find on hybrid cameras heavily advertised on television, but costs much less. It's not terribly heavy, offers tons of options, and is easy to use.
