It is nice. The K-x is certainly capable of doing great video, in the right hands.

Although there is too much gratuitous camera mobility for my taste, the built-in image stabilisation, or his rig, did pretty well throughout in keeping the recording smooth.

There are a lot of other examples of great K-x videos in the Video area of PentaxForums, by the way.

Think again. The K-x video format may eat up space, but it can be easier to edit. Formats like AVCHD can squeeze more video into less disk space, but it can often come at the expense of video quality and editing ease.

Just get a bigger, faster set of K-x SDHC cards.

The 4GB size limit of the video you can record btw is set by the SDHC FAT filesystem, not the K-x per se. Many DSLR systems that write to SDHC share this limitation. Just learn to shoot tight segments and edit.

Pentax should use something like this to promote their cameras. It is far far better than cold hard words on lifeless prints.

Well, you can go the cheap route. Opteka makes a cheap stabilizing rig that works quite well. I have one that I purchased to do small clips when the filmers that travel with me (skateboarding related) need an extra point of view. The plastic that it is made of acts somewhat as a shock-absorb'r (kind of hard to explain) - these things work surprisingly well when shooting below the hip and are really comfortable to handle and hold.

EDIT: One of the comments from B&H

Comments about Opteka X-Grip Pro Video Stabilizing Handle (Black):
For the price, this has proven to be a great investment. I bought it for filming a church camp that lasted a week. I was able to run through the woods with a much better shot than if I was just holding my dslr itself.

---------------------------------------------------------

Directly corresponds to my post of "The plastic that it is made of acts somewhat as a shock-absorb'r"

You do however have to hold it from the top bar to get the full stabilization, that it why it is marketed to use below or at the hip...

yea with such a big record time limit i will have to be very careful on wt to record, i think i will experiment with 320p record first, since it can record up to 30mins~
