PentaxPentax K-x digital SLR camera : Pentax Imaging redefines the entry-level digital SLR category with the introduction of the K-x digital SLR. The Pentax K-x camera offers high-end features including Live View and HD video. And, since there’s no rule that SLR cameras must come in black only, the Pentax K-x will be available in a choice of white or black, as well as special, limited edition red and navy. Priced at $599.95 USD (for body with DA L 18-55mm lens), the extremely compact and lightweight Pentax K-x forges ahead on the trail initiated by the popular Pentax K2000. With a one-handed shooting design and simple, easy-to-use operation, the Pentax Kx is perfect for users stepping up from a point and shoot digital camera to their first digital SLR.
