Pentax Imaging was one of the first companies to bring colorful DSLRs to market in recent years, and they’ve proved that it wasn’t just a colorful fling. Today the company added four new colors to the seven already available. First came the K-x body/kit lens combo in red, white and navy. Then in bright blue, orange, green and purple. Now there’s also pink, beige, chocolate and olive to choose from. The K-x camera body and kit lens, a Pentax DA L 18-55mm lens, come in coordinating colors.
The K-x is an entry level body, designed to be small, affordable and easy to use. The K-x DSLR features a 12.4MP CMOS sensor with sensor-shift Shake Reduction image stabilization, the ability to capture widescreen HD video in 720p resolution, true HDR (high dynamic range) image capture that blends three bracketed images into a single photograph, the Pentax Prime II image processing engine and much more. The camera is powered by AA lithium batteries and is also compatible with AA Ni-MH rechargeable and alkaline batteries.
