Here is another Canon S5IS photo, but we have adjusted the lighting a little bit, by adding a bounce flash. So, here again we can see how little changes can make a sizable difference. In this photo, it was changing the lighting, that made the difference.

Well Kriekira-

Here is another photo sample from the Kodak Z-1012. Kodak color is always controversial, how do you judge it?

Hi Sarah Joyce,

I just bought a K-x as well.

When you pick up the camera from the table and tilt it to one side (usually the left, never forward or backward), do you notice a light "thump" inside the camera as if something inside shifted?

I wonder if this is the shake reduction sensor shift mechanism or something else?

Otherwise the camera works fine.

Thanks.

It is indeed the shake reduction mechanism that allows the sensor to move. It's normal for the camera to do that - all Pentax cameras with SR do the same thing (such as the K10, K20, K-7 - I haven't particularly noticed it with the K100). It's not anything to worry about.

mtclimber, I am very interested in hearing how rechargable batteries do in the Kx. I don't usually listen to complaints about cameras as they are more often than not user error, but a thread over at PentxForum.com is convincingly documenting a Kx problem with rechargables including failure to read the correct charge level and shutting down the camera with fully charged batteries. The Kx was going to be my Christmas present to myself as I need the high ISO for my work, but that is on hold until I get a better idea as to whether this is really a problem. Who would have thunk I would dare question Pentax? Thanks.

Pentax has released a firmware fix for the Kx battery read problem at www.pentax.jp/english/support/digital/k-x_s.html.

Is the subject looking at a TV by any chance? I think I can recognise the hazy blue light coming from his viewpoint in some shots. If so, the lighting conditions are changing with the TV program content.
