New K-x White


Just bought my new K-x from BandH (White with 18-55 kit). Great deal at $470 (a week or two ago).

This is my first DSLR, but I've always had some kind of P&S for a while. The reason I bought the Pentax was that I've always wanted better photo quality, however, I didn't want to sacrifice portability. Well, so my solution was to keep my current P&S (Panasonic LX3) for walking around, and use the Pentax for home and special events. I have two young daughters and a third on the way. As a father, I am tasked with pack mule, jungle gym, kid carrier, and photographer. So at the moment, I can't carry a DSLR (with expensive lenses) around to all our activities.

Anyway, I hope I can get some good photos of the kids at home and as they grow up at special events with the Pentax. I don't see myself as 'needing' any further pro/semi-pro bodies or needing a more expensive brand of camera.

I've already picked up a used Sigma 17-70 for general purpose photos (thanks Hinman for your recommendation on your blog).

Thanks to all of you for convincing me to go with the K-x (so far, best bang for the buck)... I like the white color too! Hope to be an active participant here!

Welcome to the forum!
I think you'll find the K-x to be an amazing camera, as well as fairly portable too (I see some other DSLR's and wonder if they cause neck problems, haha!)
Man, I have a K-x and I love it, but every time I see a white one... I get fairly jealous.

Great camera, enjoy it, and welcome again!

Welcome here, and well done on picking up a bargain in the K-x. You'll find it worth what you paid for it and more.
Hope you enjoy your time on the forum.
