Hello from Canada (Northern Ontario)

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum, I have finally decided to get serious about photography. I have a Pentax SLR Digital Camera K-x, and was wondering where in this form I can get help with any questions about this model. I have two lens PENTAX 55-300 and PENTAX 18-55, I do not see any topic or sub forum with the K-x topic, I know this is a basic camera but think it is a good one to learn on before I start to spend money, I have two years until I retire at which time I plan to photograph coast to coast to coast (Canada and the USA) Thanks and looking forward to making some friends.

Hello and welcome from me too.

The K-x is a great camera, not used much by me now as I have other cameras, but all my early digital work with Pentax cameras was with a variety of K-x's.

You really must view the gallery of Phil Hemsley (morpheus71), see link below. All of Phil's work is with a K-x and it is truly stunning stuff.


Best wishes

Welcome Gerald,

I went to digital slr with the compact KX. A pentamirror rather than pentaprism was my main complaint as without weather sealing it collected dust too easily. Great photos from it though. I moved on to the KR, then the K5 and now K3. All a natural progression to learn with.

Good luck with your plans and do share results with us.
