has their work cut out for them. With companies like Olympus,
dominating the DSLR
scene, it's tough to get anyone's
attention with a different label. That said, colors sure do get
attention, and that's exactly the tactic Pentax is using with their
newest lineup. The company's K-x DSLR line has been available overseas
in a variety of hues for awhile now, but Americans were stuck with just
the basics. Now, the K-x can be ordered by Americans in limited edition
bright blue, orange, green and purple.
Each kit comes with an 18-55mm lens and an array of features including
Live View and HD video recording. Even the limited models are being
priced at $649.95 (with lens), and all eight colors are now available
for pre-order at the company's own website. Now, we wonder how long
it'll take to see a blue and red D90 or XTi?
