Hi guys

I am from Vietnam. I am so new to this forum. Got invite from a friend to this forum and I got hooked. The info here is HUGE and the people are NICE (yes, I have been reading a lot and see all the nice comments & helpings out there). So first of all, hola ya'll.

That for the intro. The main point is: I am going to get my 1st DSLR... yaaaay. For the budget I set (700~800 USD), I don't think any brand or model can beat Pentax K-x. And coincidentally, my mate is coming for his holiday in Singapore on 30th double yaaaay.

The 2 colors I am thinking of is red and white. However, I heard that red isn't as vibrant like the photo from their website, but rather pinkish:sweat:... Anyone here have a real photo of the red one as they don't have either red nor white in Vietnam:cry:. I am a guy, so if it is too pinkish, I have to skip :bheart:

Also, do they have dual kit lens for white and red in Singapore? (MS Color told me they have dual kit for red, but haven't answered on white). What package you guys think worth the money best? 18-55 + 55-300?

My English sucks, hope I don't confuse you.

Thanks much for reading these and hope to join the Pentax group :thumbsup:

Well here's a picture. RAW to jpeg conversion, so colors are pretty much what the camera sees.

Welcome to our forum. It's a great place to hang out when you are in the cyber space :)

I myself prefer the white K-x. The red one looks nice, but the white one just matches other color lenses better imo.

That's why I said the people here are NICE. Surprisingly, the answers are fast, super fast! Thanks guys.

After seeing the pic. Red one is not very pinkish eh... But white seems better now hehe. Oh, and do you guys think that white will get dirty easily and turn brown? Cos photography outdoor is dirty...

Does white have the dual lens kit package?

I'm using a White K-x and a heavy user too and realized that it started to turn a bit creamy only but not that obvious la. But its still eye-catching even if its turn to creamy. XD

Actually, I'm a rider and for those who bought a white helmet, it turn to creamy thanks to the sun. But what they did was, they use Colgate(or any other brands) to put on their creamy helmet and brush it gently(just like how u brush ur teeth), it will turn back. I think its due to the Flouride ingredient.

Oh yeah. I was disappointed at the red one too. I thought I'd pick up one in Tokyo to use with my Lensbabies (after selling off my Canon DSLR system). The red is too pinkish for me. Duh. Ended up with a white one. MAP cameras have quite a good deal for it. Just asked them for the price and I got it at about S$650 for the white kit. :D I don't really need the kit lens but what the heck. Hehe.

Hahaha! Yeah finally. I gave up on my DSLR and wanted to stay on just m43. Then realised my favourite Lensbabies suck on 2X crop factor. Initially was tempted because of the colored k-x but after seeing them in real life, I decided to go for the white one. Thanks for the welcome. :D

A friend brought me there after some evil poison sessions at old cammie shops. Then I saw the original price of about 60k plus yen was struck off. I got my Jap friend to ask and was pretty surprised at the price. The intl warranty aint no issue for me so I rushed back to the hotel and grabbed my passport ... and ended up with the cam. LOL

Xin Chao, I know and I saw white, blue and red K-x in HCMC at the store call Nguyen Kiem.
Unless you are not in HCMC city, then I am not too sure. You definitely more familiar then me as you are Vietnamese, Nguyen Kiem is a well know store all over Vietnam in household electric and electronic supplies, just like our best denki or Harvey in S'pore.
I bought my Kx in S'pore beginning of these year before the reduction in price. I check and saw in Nguyen Kiem also quite close to what I paid for. Considering the warranty and other issues, you probably might want to recheck again.

hey, thanks much. I check with some retailers but the price is sky high. I also saw the price of pentax red on Nguyen Kim, and the price is much higher than Singapore. But maybe they haven't updated yet. I will go to the store and see for my self then :)

Cheers, awesome forum you guys have. Very wery helpful :heart::thumbsup::heart:
