    Been a Pentax fan for many years and the K-x is on thetop of a very short list.

  2. Cindy Morsch says:

    Chocolate clouds of wonderful shots await my use of a beautiful chocolate wonder a Pentax choclate

  3. Alicia H-B says:

    That’s such a gorgeous camera!

  4. Mario says:

    Small, light, and make me want to go get some chocolate

  5. Andy says:

    I’ve always thought of Pentax as top-notch, and this camera is nicely loaded with features, but like some of the other folks here, it’s the chocolate color that first caught my eye. Performance wise, I liek that the camera uses AA batteries, which are ubiquitous enough to alwas be available, even if you have grab them out of the toothbrush and tv remote! The wide range and affordability of compatible lenses is another nice point.

  6. Joey Bedford says:

    Just got into photography the light weight v/s mp looks to be a benefits.

  7. Kristina says:

    I love the quality of the pictures Pentax cameras create. This summer, during my first photo class I fell in love with Pentax cameras. The Pentax k1000 is my baby currently and I’d like to be able to get my hands on a Pentax DSLR. Winning the K-x would be a dream come true, I’d give it a great home here in Hawaii. I’m sure this beauty would like it here too. <3

  8. Grigory says:

    I like the camera’s design. The same features can be found in almost any camera in that price range, but this one looks really old school and retro. :-)

  9. Kevin says:

    Fingers crossed. Thanks for the chance!


  10. Wow, I’ve never seen a camera this color before. I’ve been coveting an SLR for ages and ages and I would love to win.

  11. David says:

    I love the fast shutter speeds and the anti shake features. It should allow for some amazing action shots… like the cat climbing the Christmas tree.

  12. Jaymi says:

    For a few years I had access to a SLR and got to take lots of great photos, but it had to go back to the owner and have been stuck with a point and shoot since. I love the customization that can be done with a SLR and would love to try a DSLR. And the delicious color doesn’t hurt either.

  13. Honestly I have never used a Pentax,but would love for the Pentax to be my first DSLR camera ever….

  14. Mehnaz says:

    I love the vintage look of this camera!

  15. kendall says:

    this camera is awesome and i need a new camera, love the color and everything

  16. Patricia says:

    I like the customization available with the DSLR. My camera is pretty old and could use a new one.

  17. Marty Callan says:

    Here is my link to my tweet. Pentax rocks!

  18. alex baugh says:

    24 frames of 720p HD video per second in a yummy chocolate box… yum. Also, I’d like to try this HDR mode, sounds fun.

  19. Michelle Simons says:

    The fact that it has 12.4 mega pixels thrills me. I bet close up shots would be awesome. I love this camera. I’m tweeting. I’m @MCJunkie and following you.

  20. Sarah Creamer says:

    This camera has a great design. The chocolate color is very nice. If I won this camera I would give it to my friend who is a photography major and is struggling to save her money up for a professional digital camera. This would be perfect!

  21. Cristina says:

    I have seen it in store.I am looking to buy a DSLR. I like the widescreen and 12.4 megapixel. Also I noticed that is lighter than other DSLR’s.
    The vintage look of this camera is cool.

  22. Tim A says:

    Looks like a rocking good camera and I love the color choice. MMMMM Chocolate. The features look to be a lot of fun as well. Can’t wait to win.

  23. i like the chocolate color of the camera and also the face recognition! really, what’s not to like?

  24. i also tweeted about the contest.
    here’s a direct link!!/moderndisaster/status/28708512905

  25. Zachary W. says:

    There is nothing that will beat my Canon XTi, and have yet to be proved that a camera from Pentax can actually compete against the top name brands. Besides…the color is about the only thing it has going for it!

  26. sandramarlena says:

    i love the look and clarity! :D

  27. Dayna Fick says:

    I love this. It’s got all the cool things DSL’s have and it’s easy to use.

  30. Tami says:

    oops tweeted as @bikerblue1972… sorry left that out

  31. Jm Casaña says:

    I was able to view this dslr at my friend’s pic. Then I was really amazed by the design and its features. Since I was in high school, I was looking for a pink dslr , this is what I asked for my birthday. I love to take pictures, ‘coz this symbolizes my life. memories. But sad to say, my mom can’t give me this because it cost more than $600. too bad. well, now I see that you are giving away this cAmera, it would be a great opportunity. who knows right? (: Thanks ((:

  32. tina Mcgavero says:

    From research, I found that the pentax k-x is very good at taking pictures in low lighted situations. I compared it with other cameras like the Nikkon and find that the pentax suits my purposes best. I think this camera brings the drama that I want from photos. I hope I win this!

  33. Jan Prather says:

    My husband and I both have a Pentax DSL Camera. I have a IST DL 6.1 Megapixel, and My husband has a K20. We would love to upgrade to a 12.4 megapixel. I am the yearbook advisor at my school and many times Our cameras are used for school purposes. It would be great to have an upgrade and let my IST DL stay at school for those special moments.

  34. Harvy says:

    Truly a special camera. It really looks wild. Haven’t seen it up close and personal yet but I’m keeping my eyes open for it. If the pictures it takes are as good as its body looks it should be a great camera.

  35. Barbara A. says:

    I’ve never had a DSLR before and it would be really great to win one as nifty as this Pentax K-x. Here’s hoping.

  36. Christy says:

    I love the retro look of this camera! I am in the market for a entry-level DSLR and would love this one!

  37. tony c. says:

    This camera would be the perfect gift for my girlfriend for Xmas! She’s been wanting to upgrade – and I think she’d really dig the brown color because it’s different!

  38. Harvy says:

    Please ignor and disregard my last Entry. The link that I pasted to my tweet was wrong. This is the actual link.!/Hthere/status/28861100205

  39. Jeff S. says:

    It looks so nice I’d like to take a bite out of it. Seriously though, It has some excellent features and would be a pleasure to own.

  40. Tim A says:

    When I followed the link to look at to it said I had only 1 entry, but I tweeted so I should have had 2. I don’t know if that means anything

  41. Brian says:

    So I posted my tweet link, but now it’s not here. How could I win if my post was deleted. I sure as heck didn’t delete it. I want/need that camera and wouldn’t delete my chance of winning the camera. Can someone from DP please explain what happened to my post? (Yes, I’m sure I posted, I was the 46th or 47th post and checked to see that my post displayed. I even opened the page in Chrome and IE to check.)

  42. @Tim A:
    You were entered for two submissions. One entry is under your commenter handle (Tim A), which counted as your tweet entry. The other entry is under your email address that you gave us (which I will not share publicly on here). Enter your email address in the form and it will show that you had another entry submitted under that. Sorry for the confusion; requires that all entrants have a different identifier, so for tweets I used entrants’ commenter handles and for written comments I used email addresses. Let me know if you have any further questions. Best of luck on the next giveaway!

  43. @Brian:
    You were submitted once as an entrant in the drawing. If you search the email address that you gave us at the results page ( (I will not write your email address publicly here), you will see that you were entered. Unfortunately your second entry (tweet) was not eligible because it was not linked to in a separate comment. If you see the contest rules on how to enter it says, “Please note that if you choose to enter using both methods, you need to post two separate comments on this post (one comment for method #1 and one comment for method #2).” I’m sorry for any confusion and I do hope you will be encouraged to enter another giveaway.

    Your comment certainly was not deleted. It is on page 5 of the “older comments” archive. I can see that it was entered on 10/13/2010 at 1:03pm Pacific Time. Let us know if you have further questions.
