Comments about Pentax Pentax K-x Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Navy Blue):

The Pentax K-x offers exceptional image quality and features you'd expect from a much higher priced digital camera. While labeled as an 'entry -level' DSLR, the only thing that fits that label is it's price, at around $499.99 at most retailers.
The K-x shoots crisp, colorful pictures, includes internal software capable of adding many stylized digital filters, has multiple file formats like RAW and JPEG, shoots HDR as well as 720P video, and can use many of Pentax's old lenses.

With the overall quality, software, and creative options the K-x offers it is hard to find a better DSLR at an any price.

Comments about Pentax Pentax K-x Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Navy Blue):

The Pentax K-x gives an exceptional value for an entry level DSLR. Image quality is what really sold me on the K-x. Add features like an affordable price, extensive in-camera software with digital filters and image stabilization, the ability to use older Pentax lenses, great low light pictures, multiple file formats ( JPEG, RAW), 720P video, HDR and many preset options, and you have an incredible camera. I highly recommend the K-x to anyone looking for a DSLR that shoots great pictures at a very reasonable price.
