It's been a year in the making, but Pentax has released a successor to the K-x DSLR, and while the upgrades aren't astonishing, there's a higher ISO count (up to 25,600) and larger LCD, at 3-inches.
A number of previously Japan-only Pentax K-x camera colors are headed to the U.S., the company confirmed Friday. Until Pentax opened up the color palette, we Yanks only had access to red and black models in this line.
What a complete, utter surprise this is: On Valentine's Day, a holiday associated closely with gift-giving and things that are red, white and pink, we receive word that Pentax is going to sell a pink version of their K-x DSLR.
It just looks like a toy. This real, fully-functional dSLR is a limited edition Pentax K-x in the color scheme of Japan's Kore Ja Nai robot (the little guy in the shot).
Pentax's entry-level game just got interesting with the K-x: At $650, the followup to the K2000 is the cheapest DSLR that'll shoot 720p video. And it comes with blood red, shiny blue and cookies 'n' cream white.
Photorumors has a few pictures and a complete list of specs for Pentax's K-X DSLR, which they claim is going to set to launch tomorrow. Looks like it'll pack a 12.4MP CMOS sensor, 720p video and 2.7-inch LCD.
