Item Description
Price reduced...PENTAX KX camera, with DA (not the DA-L model) 18-55 kit lens. Lens looks like it has never been used; has the metal mount, and includes hood, papers and box. Camera is the "Navy blue" model. Has an issue with the battery level gauge, which indicates the battery is low when this is not the case. Camera is otherwise fine, looks great and has been updated with the latest Pentax software. Includes box, strap, manual. $375 for camera and lens. As an aside, I also have a Pentax DA-L model 18-55 lens for $50, if anyone would like a good lens cheap.

I've updated your thread to say "K-x" instead of KX, because that's an entirely different (film) camera!

Pentax k-x firmware

The firmware upgrade given this camera supposedly "fixed" the problem with the battery strength indicator. I have had no problems with it since then, but the indicator persists in telling me that the battery is on its way down. I have 4 lithiums in ti now. Thanks for the name update.

Thank you very much for your interest, but I do not want to become involved with overseas shipping. I am limiting my mailing area to the United States. Thanks again.

Hi, can you clarify the battery issue? Is that the only thing that's the matter with the camera? Do you have shutter counts information?

Jin - The K-X had a battery level meter issue. Pentax has updated the firmware twice to correct this problem. His is not the only camera (I think all of them had this issue). The only time it is ever an issue is if you want to clean the sensor (which you have to have full charged batteries to do). The Firmware updates correct this problem for the most part. But like I said if you go to Pentax's website the firmware updates specifically state that they address this issue. Hope this helps, PS the KX is one of the best values in cameras today.

Thanks for the above clarification. When I first bought the camera (used, so I don't have any shutter count info), the little battery strength indicator would turn red (indicating almost dead uses 4 AA's) after just a few shots. The firmware update has for the most part cured this problem, although you will still get an indication that the batteries are about half gone. This is the only flaw that I am aware of with this camera. All else on the camera seems to work fine. I am selling it to concentrate on my Nikon D7000. Thanks again for the information, it helps a lot.
