Verified Purchaser
Pros: White Color Rocks, Easy to use, Great quality pictures

We absolutely love the camera, you can see right away the quality of the pictures and the ease of use. It will take some time to get used to but the camera is definitely worth the cost.Beachcamera staff was very helpful and responded to e-mails fast.[...]

4 out of 5 stars   Perfect entry level SLR
By Slammin Jammin Flyin Fross (The Moon) January 19, 2011
Review submitted for Pentax K-x Digital SLR Lens Kit w/ DA L 18-55mm and 50-200mm Lens White (PKKXKT250200W)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Beautiful colors, Super fast, Easy to use
Cons: Built in flash sucks, No focus reticle
Other Comments: Really easy to use, traditional SLR with tons of extra features, HDR works well but might require some post processing (contrast). Built in flash WAY too strong, get an external one of course. Overall, Id buy it again, can tell I'm going to love it for years to come.

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy to use, Cool color options, Light Weight, Takes excellent pics, Great for beginners, Many functions, Multiple Lenses, Easy to download pics
Cons: LED Screen a bit small
Other Comments: I have just started using the K-x, I maintain my K-1000 (film) as i learn all the different functions on the K-x. I recently took it to the beach with new puppy and used it in fully auto mode. Took excellent pics, action and still. Day was over cast and cool. The speed at which it focuses in auto mode is excellent, looking fowrward to learning all of its functions. [...] price was excellent.
