Highly regarded digital SLR at the lowest price it's ever been and including free Pentax case and class 6 memory card.
Good, established UK dealer selling UK stock.
In reviews this camera comes out pretty well on a par with the Nikon D5000, with very similar features (including HD video) and image quality, but cheaper.
I have got the K-m, which is the next model down and I'm very pleased with it.
The K-x combines a variety of advanced features and user-friendly functions to ensure an outstanding level of photographic performance within a compact, lightweight body.
The K-x design is based on the award winning PENTAX K-m, an entry-class digital SLR camera launched in October 2008 that gained popularity for its compact, lightweight body and simple, user-friendly operation. The K-x features a newly designed high performance CMOS image sensor and an upgraded filter function. It also features a whole host of advanced features and such as live view shooting and movie recording, approximately 12.4 megapixels and high-speed continuous shooting. The K-x is the perfect camera for first-time digital SLR camera users, as well as an ideal backup camera for more experienced photographers.
