The K-x's video is just so-so. It's only recorded at 24 frames per second, shake reduction doesn't apply, and it's quite prone to the sensor wobbles. Exposure adjusts in a jarring fashion too frequently. On the other hand, the K-x is one of the cheapest video-capable dSLRs available (at least at the time of this review), and its video is fine in a pinch.

The Pentax K-x is fast, with good photo quality and an excellent noise profile. Although there are a few things about it that really disappointed us, overall we think most users will like it for what it is -- a flexible, budget dSLR that delivers.
