Absolutely the worse camera I have EVER owned.

Absolutely the worse camera I have EVER owned.

by Amy Chard

The Model is the Pentax K - x 12.4 MP digital SLR.

This camera has not worked properly since we purchased it almost a year ago.

The picture quality is poor when it does work.

We took it on vacation in FL in March and the lense would lock up everytime we tried to take a photo outside.

We called customer service and were told it may be due to the heat.

Seriously, my mother has a canon and has NEVER had problems taking pictures in the "heat"...

So people who live in FL, AZ etc should expect to have problems with the lense locking up because it is too hot?!

This to me is extremely poor customer service, he then told us to keep using the camera and see if the problem would correct itself.

We then took it on our next vacation to CO in July of the same year and sure enough the camera stopped working all together.

Upon returning from our vacation we sent the camera in to be fixed (Aug 8) and they still have our camera as of today (Oct 4th) with no estimated return date.

REALLY... I have been using my mothers Canon and absolutely LOVE it, if I could turn back time I would have NEVER bought a Pentax camera.

Not only is my confidence in their product below zero, their customer service is TERRIBLE...

Even though i cannot talk about Pentax, I have a Canon SLR and I absolutely love it too!

It really is a great cam, i have used it constantly for 5 years without one single problem!

Thumbs up Canon :-)
