    Great daylight photos. Hunts for focus in med room lighting situations, September 26, 2013
    By 
    M. Winschel (Richmond, VA) –
    (REAL NAME)
      

    UPDATE 4/2014 – I have found a significant drawback with this unit that has really taken the lustre off of the camera and has left me very disappointed. The unit stinks in low light. It will hunt for focus and not find it, flash or no flash. It doesnt even have to be very low lighting conditions. I have used other canon and nikon units and they do not have the same issue. The camera has been getting significantly less usage since that. I still really like it for daylight shots but look elsewhere or try it before you keep it if standard indoor room lighting levels are important to you. If it were not for the lenses purchased I would have returned it to costco and looked for something else.

    Original review:
    Purchased this unit from costco after researching reviews on comparable Nikon and Canon units. All but one of the tech reviews raved about this camera. The plus side is the unit is “weather proof” (still not sure how that is defined). The reviews in general favored this unit in overall image quality over the Canon T5i rebel which was the other unit I was comparing it to. This was less expensive than the Canon and weatherproof. Out of the box the unit is very easy to pick up and start shooting with if you have any experience with DSLR cameras. Very intuitive menu design. Overall build feels very solid and fits my hands well. Photo quality is amazing in the little bit of playing I have done with it. I need to work on learning the advanced features of the unit (which are many) to do a better job on exposure. I was seeing my subjects under exposed a bit in daylight. Playing with some of the settings has helped. I don’t fault the camera for this, but my relative inexperience. I coupled this two lens set with a fast 50 lens for portrait shooting. Going off topic: I LOVE this lens. First prime lens and am really impressed with the bokeh effect I am capable of producing, nothing less than stunning with this camera. The combination has really been a huge step up in what I can produce over my D50. Going off topic again:I also added a class 10 eye-fi card 16gb for instant photo transfer. Love it. Third unit and to me they are very easy to setup and use, never had an issue with them. I have seen nothing negative yet about the camera. Like the color combinations. Got mine in white and it looks classy. I need to dig in and learn how to really unleash the potential of the camera.

    I am excited about the “weather proof” aspects of the design and need to learn more about it. I purchased an Olympus Tough TG1 last year for less than perfect and underwater conditions and it does the job it’s designed to do well but lacks the control and overall image quality of a DSLR. Being able to take this outside without paranoia over any exposure to the elements weighed heavily in my decision over the Canon and Nikon (I was really leaning towards the Canon after having used it). Just make sure that the lenses you are going to use carry the weather proof rating also. The fast 50 does not.

    I am really looking forward to learning this camera better and have no regrets over buying it sight unseen over the canon and nikons. So far I am amazed with the quality of shots that I have produced. I will update this later when I get a little more time with the unit.

    The perfect first time DSLR, March 8, 2014
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I just finished 2 years of shooting all over the world with my Canon EOS 60D. That camera was the best DSLR that I had handled in a long time, and bested Nikons 5200 by a long shot in my opinion. I now shoot wildlife and outdoor sporting photography and needed something that could stand up to the elements and provide high quality photos. This Pentax K30 and K50 series of cameras fit this bill perfectly, and after much consideration I went with the K50. I also purchased another WR lens in 200mm to accompany this one. The K50 body and both lenses have proven to exceed my expectations of a camera and lens system in this price range. These products easily compete with Canons and Nikons that sell for twice the cost. All specs aside, the focusing is fast and precise, the options are very extensive but lack in some areas compared to other makes, and the end result has pleased me over and over again without fail. If you need a camera to take on a rafting trip, rainy day, or want something that can hold up to dust storms in Iraq/Afghanistan, this is the clear choice for you. As a military contractor and avid amateur photographer, this camera suits my needs perfectly, and produces images at equal quality to my EOS 60D which cost me $1200. I paid $450 for this kit because the seller sold me a returned product and Amazon provided me with a 20% refund due to that. My point and shoot cost more than that, so I am beyond happy with this purchase and look forward to years of shooting with this very competitively priced and engineered marvel of a DSLR.

    The Alternative that Isn’t, January 13, 2014
    By 

    A simply spectacular tool. I am a Pentaxian for sure, but I have used many other brands including the Big Two, and nothing comes close at this price point. You get a modern update of the highly acclaimed 16 MP Sony sensor in a fully weather-sealed body with a matching (high quality) kit lens for under $700!

    The body is unbelievable rugged for being plastic. It makes every other DSLR in its price range feel like a cheap toy. Plus, the grip is hands down the best I have ever felt at any price. It hugs my hand and locks in place–no need for a hand strap. The grip and solid, unyielding body are why I chose this model over the K-5II.

    At low ISOs, the older sensor is on par or maybe a little noisier than competing models, but when the lights go down, this thing shines. Zero noise gain when well exposed, but if you have to push say a 3200 RAW image, you will be blown away at the headroom the K-50 has in its 12 bit files. And if you can find noise (by pushing), it’s not that gross banding we are used to seeing with cameras that shoot for marking megapixels rather than image quality. It is a gentle, film-like fine grain in very large prints. And this is for color, if you’re converting to B&W, you can take this thing all the way through its ISO range and make beautiful small prints.

    The menu system is as near perfect as I can trust engineers to make it. They either are, or work with photographers. Everything you need is one to three clicks away. I tried using a D5200 recently, and I couldn’t even figure out how to set it to RAW, I had to look it up. Then ISO took me five minutes. It was ridiculous. I guarantee you will not have this problem with any Pentax DSLR from 2010 to today.

    The lens is pretty brilliant for a kit lens. It is weather-sealed and solid. The zoom is very well dampened. It feels high-quality. I have used many kit lenses in the past from many manufacturers, and this one is the best. It even beats Panasonic’s micro four-thirds kit lens in build. Image quality wise, it’s about on par with others; by that I mean it needs to be stopped down to shine. But it is very sharp throughout the range when it has plenty of light.

    Now for the bad: The out-of-camera JPEGs suck. Pentax has never had great JPEG processing. This sensor begs to be left alone. Shoot RAW and use a calibrated monitor to edit the images (it records in DNG, so there’s no worry there).

    Moreover, this body needs good glass. Please don’t be a hipster and buy a high-quality camera and only use the kit lens. This is a serious tool, not a toy, so invest in decent lenses. Luckily, the K-mount has among the most expansive and diverse lens collection in photography (it’s why I shoot Pentax). But you don’t have to break the bank, just go to your favorite flea market or internet auction site and look for old manual lenses. You’ll be surprised and the quality that can be had for under 50 USD.

    So there it is. My very first ever Amazon product review. Yes, I love this camera that much. It is not just an alternative brand. And this is not an alternative camera at all because the competition doesn’t come close at this price.

    Bottom line: If you are looking for your first DSLR, or if you’re considering switching mounts because you’re growing tired of the half-adding and broken promises the Big Two have been accused of lately, you cannot go wrong with the Pentax K-50.
