I just moved up from a FinePix S700, so the learning curve was a little steep. I bought this camera because I was looking for a camera that would take burst shots, as my son plays many sports. It works great!! It did take me a little while to learn the correct settings, but, the quality is well worth it!! Great camera, at a price I could handle!!
Excellent for the price I paid. Good features, I recommend getting into the forum since there are some tips about changing ISO from 200 to 100 (also cover in the manual).
This camara is perfect for the beginner to intermediate enthusiastic photographer.
But you could do absolutely all of it as professional techniques.
Being a budding photographer of no great knowledge of the craft, I wanted to pursue this art as a way of utilizing my spare time in a constructive way. So I checked out Ebay & found this site. I didn't want to spend to much as I didn't know a great deal & I didn't want to buy something shoddy either that I'd regret later on. This sight provided me with all that I needed & the product to date has been excellent. I have absolutely no regrets having dealt with this site & I'm very happy with the products as advertised & received.
The camera gives me a very good feel when I take pictures. The features are fairly easy to manipulate. I am not used to taking videos with camera, but know that it will also be easy when I devote some time to learn it. I have used an earlier version of a Pentax still camera (Pentax K1000) and the Pentax K-r made my shooting more lively. The picture quality goes beyond what I anticipated.
Excellent camera for any Beginner/Consumer use, Compact design and faster FPS helps to get brilliant photos. In camera edit features are great, HDR is a plus.
If you have some old film era SLR Pentax K Bayonet prime lenses this will be a great way to save lots of money on buying new prime lenses (m42 users are not left behind too there is a adapter for that and if you get the correct adapter you are good!). I think it is the only Camera that supports backward compatibility without a problem. if you have lenses with A setting camera will give you amazing opportunity to get amazing pictures. IQ is way better than some entry level Canon cameras.
my only concern is wished it had more accessories like wireless flash triggers (with AAA batteries not CR2) more auto focus prime lenses that can afford (limited series are expensive) also video recording could have been better, wish it had a HDMI output
