I have searched high and low and there is nothing out there for the K-x.
There is an aftermarket manual / book for the Kx...

Pentax e-books

Would have preferred a printed book to an ebook however the author seems to specialize exclusively in Pentax, which should make it the best alternative to the factory manual.

I know Joe Farace and English is his first language. (Author of the K100D book) He lives in Colorado.

K10D Magic Lantern Guide

Thanks for your kind comment about my book!

I have the guide for the K10D and found it to be very good. It connects the camera's functions and practical photography theory. If you are a new shooter, not just with the camera it covers, then I recommend it even more.

I bought my first dslr - K7 - in December and within a week bought the Magic Lantern guide. I think I refer more to the guide than the manual - (I carry both in my camera bag - for reference and some light reading when bored

No Guide Book K-x

Hi Kelly, No, not from Magic Lantern anyway and I have not been asked to write one for the K-5 so far, anyway.

Is there a Magic Lantern available for the Kx? I have been searching online and can't seem to find one - Peter Burian seems to have authored some of the other Pentax guides but nothing so far for the Kx.

Cheers and thanks Kelly

Magic Lantern said they have no plans of making a guide for the K-x. Which in my opinion SUCKS!!!
I find the K-x manual to be fairly well phrased and logical... tbh I'm not sure what the fuss is all about...
Anything I am unsure about can be easily found using a quick search of this forum...

When the economy is sluggish, people buy fewer non-essentials such as books.

Of course, if a Nikon or Canon camera will sell like hotcakes, the books will still do ok.

But Pentax never sells nearly as many cameras so a lot fewer books too.
