Pentax Introduces K-x 12.4-Megapixel DSLR Camera

Pentax K-x DSLR Camera

The new Pentax K-x takes its place between the company’s entry-level K-m and pro-level K-7 models, largely carrying on with the former’s design but taking in many of the latter’s features.

The Pentax K-x offers a newly developed 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 company said 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.

Along with the new camera is a new lens, the smc PENTAX-DA L 55-300mm F4-5.8 ED super-telephoto zoom lens, which comes as part of a K-x twin lens kit package. The Pentax K-x will be available in black, white, red and blue in October for $600 with the 18-55mm DAL kit lens (also available in all four colors), and $850 with the 18-55mm DAL and 55-300mm DAL double kit lens. An additional kit with the smc PENTAX DA L 18-55mm lens and smc PENTAX DA L 50-200mm zoom lenses is available in the US for $750.
