Pentax K-x 12.4 MP Digital SLR with 2.7-inch LCD – Review:


This my first DSLR. I am very happy with the purchase. It is very easy to use and takes great photos. I will occasionally still get a blurry or under/overexposed photo which I assume is somehow my fault but overall the auto setting just seems to work. I do get alot more pictures of my 3 year old’s smiling face because it focuses so much faster than my old camera. I am just starting to use some of the more advanced features but I used some of the filters only a day or two after first trying it. They were very easy to use, actually, the whole camera is very intuitive.

I am not a professional photographer. I imagine there are things the camera can’t do but I don’t know what. The shake reduction seems to work really well and battery life is really good as long as you don’t do a lot of movies or live view. The battery indicator was a bit wacky but I updated the firmware and it is fixed.

In a nutshell, worth every penny.
