Pentax K-x (Body Only, Black)

 

Aside from the fact that it comes in too many colors to count, at least overseas, there's a lot to like about the Pentax K-x, an entry-priced dSLR with some sophisticated features you don't normally see in that price class. Continuing its tradition of...

Very good noise profile; nice-size viewfinder for its class; relatively speedy

Doesn't display AF points in viewfinder; no HDMI connector; slow Live View autofocus; mediocre LCD; unreliable image stabilization

A fast, inexpensive dSLR with better-than-average low-light quality, the Pentax K-x nevertheless has some flaws, such as unreliable image stabilization, to watch out for.

the K-x is an excellent camera

 

I first bought a Pentax K-2000/K-m - but my 65 yr old eyes could not get a good view thru the view finder even after messing with the diopler adjustment I have used a cheapo pocket digital for a while and didnt know ALL digitals didnt have live view ...

I think its great the more I use it. I dont get the lack of stabilization, havent noticed a problem when useing the auto lenses Two of my Tele lens are manual only so its not used ; The manual is great ! tells you more than you would expect (see cons)

eats batteries due to live view (4 - AA) so you must have xtra sets on a long ; shoot or use the view finder ; The manual, anytime in one function that it refers to another it gives you a page ; number instead of telling you then Lots of flipping around
