  • Grab The Pentax K-X 12.4 Megapixel Digital Camera With 18-55mm Lens

    Posted on May 5th, 2010 Staff Writer

    The Pentax Kx is a 12.4-megapixel camera is a great camera with sensor-shift image stabilization, a 2.7-inch LCD, Live View mode, and a 720p movie mode. Capable of 4.6 frames per second, the Pentax K-x’s top shutter speed is 1/6,000 second. The Pentax K-x also includes the K-7′s HDR modes, and it also has the Digital filters, as well as a new Cross Process mode that randomly emulates several results that you’d only get by cross-processing film with different types of developer. Though it’s small, the Pentax K-x’s grip is good, with an ample thumbgrip on the back. The Mode dial now includes Movie mode as well. This is a great buy as far as a SLR camera goes and is very affordable for all the features that come with the camera.
