The Pentax Kx really surprised us with its long list of impressive features, especially considering its low price.
In addition to its 12.4-megapixel sensor with image stabilization, its 2.7-inch LCD, Live View, and 11-point AF system, the Pentax Kx features 720p HD movie mode at up to 24 frames per second, and the Kx can shoot stills at a category-leading 4.6 frames per second. The Pentax Kx also has the fastest shutter speed at this price, going up to 1/6,000 second, and its top ISO setting exceeds the Pentax K-7, with a maximum of 12,800. Many of the K7's special features made it into this tight little digital camera, including HDR modes and digital filters that allow you to quickly adjust how your images look. Pentax also used a different sensor in the Kx, which not only delivers higher ISO settings, but better quality at those settings, turning out quite usable 8x10 shots at ISO 6,400! As an added bonus, the Pentax Kx is available in several colors. Click here for more on the surprising Pentax Kx digital SLR camera.
