    The Pentax K-x is a giant killer!, May 29, 2010

    Edgar_in_Indy (Indianapolis, IN USA) –

    This review is from: Pentax K-x 12.4MP Digital SLR with 2.7 inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Lens (Navy) (Electronics)

    I recently upgraded from my beloved Olympus e-510 DSLR with the 14-42mm and 40-150mm kits lenses in order to get a DSLR with better low-light performance and HD video capabilities. I loved my Olympus, but image quality took a nose-dive at ISO 800, and I liked the idea of having an HD camcorder built into my camera to capture high quality family photos and home videos in one device. I eventually settled on the Pentax K-x after first buying, and then returning, a Canon T2i.

    I know that the T2i costs almost twice as much as the K-x, and they’re not direct competitors, but I think my experience illustrates what a great camera and bargain the K-x is and how, for me at least, it was a giant killer.

    I initially pre-ordered a T2i for the $900 MSRP after reading the glowing reviews in the press about the 18MP sensor, the high-ISO performance and the killer 1080p video. When I received the T2i, I was surprised by how cheap and plasticky it felt. It’s not that the T2i was likely to fall apart, but my Olympus felt and looked like a higher quality camera, even though it was about $200 less than the T2i when I bought it. I realize that the T2i is a Rebel, but for almost $1000, I expected something more solid.

    Even worse was the Canon 18-55mm kit lens, which felt like a toy compared to my Olympus kit lenses. It looked cheap, and the zoom action felt very cheap, and you could hear plastic-on-plastic as you zoomed in and out. There was no lens hood included, and the optional lens hood was only about an inch deep and looked ridiculous. The front element rotated when auto-focusing, which makes using some filters problematic, and you had to switch off AF to manually make focus adjustments. My Olympus lenses did not rotate the front element, and allowed full time focus override without turning off AF. And build-wise, they looked and felt like a higher end lens. But worst of all, Canon kits lens’s optical performance was lacking, rendering the 18MP sensor moot.

    I could live with the cheap feel of the T2i body and the ugly jelly-bean design, but I came to realize that in order to get a lens that would match the performance of the body, I would need to shell out another $500 or more, and as a hobbyist I just didn’t have the budget.

    The real deal-breaker with the T2i though, was the use of Quicktime format for the HD video. Quicktime is a proprietary Apple video format, and while I must assume it works well on a new Mac, the QT videos often gave PCs problems. I’d read about this from other users, but I figured that with my high-end PCs and my computer knowledge, I would be okay. But both my new Sony Vaio laptop with Windows 7, ATI 4650 graphics and 4GB of RAM and my desktop computer with Windows XP, dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM, Raptor 10K HDD and nVidia 8800GT graphics would stutter on playback of the 1080p files. And finding affordable programs to edit Quicktime HD video files is another headache. I wasn’t about to buy a new Mac just to be able to work with the video from my new camera.

    So back went the T2i, and my quest for a new camera continued. I was just about to pull the trigger on a Nikon D5000, when I came across the Pentax K-x.

    The first thing that grabbed my attention was the styling. I thought the red was killer, but I wasn’t that brave. And the camera looked dead-sexy in navy blue, but when I saw the white version, I was in love. One thing I liked about my Olympus was that it was something DIFFERENT than all the Nikons and Canon Rebels you see every other parent carrying to school or sports functions. I would often get questions about it from people who didn’t realize that Olympus even MADE DSLRs. With this Pentax, I would again have something out of the ordinary.

    Then I started reading reviews of the K-x. One of the great things about the T2i is the high ISO image quality, and according to the reviews and the sample images I was looking at, the K-x was right there with it.

    And the K-x also did HD video. There were some limitations, such as 720p and lack of full control over exposure while shooting video, but I didn’t really mind since the samples I downloaded looked great, even on my 110″ 1080P home theater projector. And 720p files take less space than 1080p and require less processing power to playback and edit. And best of all, the K-x uses Motion JPEG video format, which plays back great on PCs and is compatible with almost any Windows video editing program. The MJPEG format does use more disk space than the equivalent QT file, but hard drives and SD cards are cheap these days, so it’s not a big deal.

    Another great thing about the K-x is that it has sensor-based image stabilization in the body, so any lens you stick on the camera is stabilized. My Olympus used a similar system, and I was very happy with it. The big advantage is that you can be non-stabilized lenses so they’ll be smaller, lighter, and…

    the BEST entry level DSLR, May 14, 2010

    Pang “electricbank” (Arlington, VA) –

    This review is from: Pentax K-x 12.4MP Digital SLR with 2.7 inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Lens (Navy) (Electronics)
    The Pentax K-x is my first DSLR and I am very happy that I chose this over this over the other major brands for various reasons:

    1) Great noise reduction (up to 3200 ISO with little noise)
    2) I can buy and use older Pentax lenses (I prefer the “A” type cuz they are quality and inexpensive) as well as the new digital ones.
    2) 720 HD video (without major limits except what your SD card gives)
    3) Internal Shake Reduction (for movies and photos)
    4) Lots of different filtering options (though I prefer PP)
    5) Easy user interface (intuitive menu)
    6) AND IT’S SUPER CHEAP!!!

    Basically, it all comes down to what lens collection you want to be a part of and how much you are willing to pay. The Pentax K-x has a lot of features for the price and so for my budget, it has been a joy.

    Remarks to previously stated cons
    1) Battery life (I use new Eneloops and Energizers that work days in my camera using the 1.01 firmware update)
    2) No AF confirmation (oh well, i use manual focus lenses and replaced my focus screen with a Nikon K-3)

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Pentax K-x 12.4MP Digital SLR with 2.7 inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Lens (Navy) (Electronics)
    I received my camera and in a few minutes I was out shooting pictures and HD videos. I had went online and read up on the camera weeks leading up to the purchase, so I had some knowledge of the camera’s setting. It is a great camera for the price. I took about 500 pictures this weekend up at Queen Mary’s Park in Long Beach, Ca covering the 18th LAcalendar Motorcycle Show. The pictures came out beautifully. I used a Tamron AF 28-300 zoom lense that I bought at a local camera shop. The depth of field on a lot of the photos are unbelievable. Super sharp and super clear. The custom picture settings are a plus. I went in and adjusted some to meet my needs for a different look. The Pentax corperation has a long history of great cameras and quality one can trust. I’m glad that I made this purchase after testing and reading about the other more expensive DSLR cameras that are out there. The ones that everybody are buying because someone in Hollywood used it to make a movie. But apples to apples, the K-X is right up there with them but on a lower price scale which any lowbudget director will appreciate.
