We've just posted our first set of test shots taken with the Pentax K-x digital SLR camera.
The Pentax K-x replaces last year's K2000 model in the company's lineup, and takes some of the impressive features from the K-7, and places them in a more consumer-friendly body whose design is almost unchanged from that of the K2000. The main changes in the Kx are a new image sensor and processor, Pentax's 11-point SAFOX VIII AF module, the addition of both live view and 24fps high-definition video capability, and significant boosts to the camera's maximum shutter speed (1/6000), ISO sensitivity (up to ISO 12,800) and burst-shooting (4.7 fps) capabilities. The Pentax K-x also includes the unusual high dynamic range mode that debuted in the K7, and retains the company's wide range of filter effects and custom image modes, as well as in-camera Raw processing capability. See our Pentax K-x Hands-on Preview for more details, and the Pentax K-x samples page for all the test images we've shot so far, including links to select RAW files.
