Great reviews elsewhere too.

common cheap bag of junk!

If only I had the money for one of these. DO they really sell many at that price?

Man… In December I’d be all over this. Too bad I still have to focus on graduating before starting that career.

Nice camera! Anyone know what size film it takes?

you don’t see many DSLR cameras on woot very often, let alone a woot off. This is a great camera, just don’t have the funds on hand right now to get one.

I own this one. And expensive? It’s an older model. I paid $1400 for it. This is a STEAL!!!

Best camera I EVER owned.

Oh…very affordable. I might get 3.

I have this camera’s predecessor (the K10D). It’s an amazing camera, and the best bang for the buck. If I had the $$$, I’d upgrade to this in a heartbeat.

Wow.

It’s too bad I’m broke… :frowning:

it dosent say nikon or canon…not that good…

Someone from texas is rich.

Someone bought 3 already!

Buy more!

■Value for money

Conclusion - Cons
■Continuous shooting rate slow by modern standards
■Hot pixels can occur and can’t be automatically removed
■Noise reduction cannot be raised as high as the competition
■Live view mode adds very little to the camera (it is neither seamless nor able to usefully magnify)
■Autofocus not as fast or consistent in low light as the more expensive competition
■Menu navigation a little clunky and won’t revert to last-used location
■Would have been nice to have hard buttons for White Balance
■Average automatic white balance performance, still very poor under incandescent light
■Flash must be raised for AF assist (although AF works even in very low light)
