'More unusually still at this level, the K-x’s light sensitivity settings can be boosted to a semi-pro equivalent ISO 12,800 for flash free photography in the near dark and 16:9 widescreen format HD video recording – at 1280 x 720 pixels, 24fps, rather than Full HD 1920 x 1080 – marking this out as an affordable all-in-one device. '
'Small and light, the Pentax K-x seems like a well-built, no-nonsense digital SLR'
'The new K-x felt sturdy.'
'The camera also features a new 'cross-processing' mode on top of an already impressive range of filters and processing options. '
'It offers not just peace-of-mind supplying brawn - complete with screw heads visible on the faceplate and a lens with a folded mechanism that ensures that at no point does it protrude from the camera body - but brains too.'
'The Optio W90's underwater capabilities are impressive, and it's a camera that Pentax designed as a tough, well-built model.'
