White Pentax K-x w/18-55mm lens - Low shutter count! Original Box!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
White Pentax K-x w/18-55mm lens - Low shutter count! Original Box!

Asking Price
275 USD

Item Location
Indianapolis (United States)

Item Description
I already have a white K-30, so I bought this white K-x for my wife, hoping to interest her in photography. As it turns out, she has no interest, so it's time for this camera to find a better home. The camera is like new, and comes in the original box. The shutter count is very low, at just over 3000.

Click on any of the images below for a larger version, and be sure to scroll down for some sample pictures taken by this actual camera.

I shot these pictures at home today using the K-x. The pictures of the little girls were shot with the Sigma 85mm 1.4 lens,
but the picture of the antique camera was shot using the actual 18-55mm lens that comes with this camera.

I listed the camera on eBay as a 7-day No Reserve auction starting at $1. It is currently at $192 and has 3 days left, so if you're interested in bidding here's the link:

Good luck!

Why was this auction removed from eBay?
Because I had the word "Canon" in the title. I got a message from eBay when there was one day left in the auction advising me that the listing had been canceled due to the title. So I have now relisted it, without the offending word in the title.

I have updated the link in the previous message for the new eBay listing, here it is again:

Huh - I didn't pay attention to the previous eBay title, but the present title seems weird to me - what does km, k-r, Star Wars, and Stormtrooper have to do with a k-x?

You don't see any resemblance?



All the white Pentax models are popularly known as "Stormtroopers."

... all except the K-01 maybe, which is called "panda" for some reason.

The specific wording of eBay listing titles is very important since the title is the primary thing used for search results. My title is designed to attract the maximum number of search hits for my K-x. The K-m, K-x, and K-r are very similar Pentax models, so there's likely to be overlap between people looking for a K-x, K-m, or a K-r. So I've got all three models covered in my title, so my camera will come up in a search for any of them.

And I put Stormtrooper in there because one of the claims to fame of the white K-x is that it looks like something a Star Wars "Stormtrooper" would use. I saw another white K-x that was listed as a Stormtrooper camera, and it ended up getting bid to a decent price. So since I had some extra space in the title, I figured I'd throw it in there in case there's some Star Wars fan who comes across the camera and falls in love with it.

OK - guess I'm out of the loop with Pentax marketing........

Apologies to Edgar if I sidetracked your sale.
