The Pentax K-x is a digital SLR camera that's certainly pushing the limits of photography.

Packing into its compact body all its manufacturer's latest technological developments, the Pentax K-x is designed for use by everyone.

The Pentax K-x boasts an advanced 4-channel CMOS sensor with 12.3-megapixel resolution.

Pictures couldn't be any crisper too, thanks to the built-in mechanical image stabiliser that works by shifting the sensor. Meanwhile, the vibration-based cleaning system on the Pentax K-x works with the dust-detection feature to remove every last trace of dirt for blur-free images.

This digital SLR camera is also incredibly easy to get the hang of. The K-x's large 2.7-inch TFT screen is complemented by the Pentamirror viewfinder, allowing you to line up frames in an instant. There's even a number of digital filters to choose from, so you can add that personal touch to your work.

And that's not all! The Pentax K-x even has a wide range of scene modes and programmes to bring out the best in your snaps.

Available in a variety of bright colours, the K-x from Pentax is a real resolution in the digital camera world.

I bought this kit before Christmas and used the cashback. (Authorised dealers sale must be £650 or more, before 15/1/10)

Its a great camera with amazing reviews. Not had any problems, just trying to get the best out of it after moving up from compact cameras and my old Pentax Super ME

Pentax have a unique selling point: all the old SLR lenses are compatible. You need to change one menu item "Using Aperture Ring" and you can then add hundreds of cheap manual lenses. Cashconvertors anyone?

chcezary, I'm no expert and I'm in the same position as you. I've trawled through reviews read so many forums that its not funny and I've found that the Pentax k-x is the best camera when compared to the equivalent cannons and Nikons. Of course there will be cannon and Nikon users swearing by their brands. From the extensive research I've done the Pentax offers much more for the money and Users and experts alike really rate the camera. Having said all that the general consensus is that there is hardly anything between these cameras you just need to go and hold the cameras for yourself and see whats comfortable for you. If I had the money I'd buy the Pentax K7 but I dont!

Go to Dpreviews have a look at the forums there are many debates about k20d or k x hopefully they'll help you!

just wont buy some good SLR camera but dont know which?
canon eos 500D
pentax k20d
or??
any help?


I highly recommend go to Currys or a another shop where you can play around with the cameras without a shop assistant breathing down your neck or try to influence you. When I did that I was amazed how much I liked some cameras and disliked other cameras, something I could have never got from reading reviews. It is very important to hold a DSLR in your hand before you commit to a purchase. Technical details suddenly don't matter, at least to me. After all a camera is just a tool and you need to feel comfortable with.

The 55-300mm lens is better if you take a lot of shots of wildlife. If you're more city based the 55-200mm will be better for you due to its physical size. I have the 300mm kit, my girl has the 200mm (so yes we can swap around) but she has no complaints about the 200mm.

And as I posted before you could pick up an older manual or more expensive autofocus lens to add to your collection.

Oh and this lens screws onto the 18-55mm or the 55-200mm for amazing effects:

Weak point of this deal is not the camera it's the retailer. Having read the reviews I wouldn't go near Pixmania and suggest you do so at your peril!

its just a fisheye lens screwed onto the front filter ring of the original lens, giving the effect shown.
tbh, you're better off buying a standalone 8mm fisheye lens (if that's the kind of shots you are after) as then you have less glass in front of the sensor.

the amazon one is a cheap (& not so good) one tbh

you could also make your own fisheye lens - http://www.brighthub.com/multimedia/photography/articles/40970.aspx

you can also create the effect in photoshop with a bit of practice
