With the color selections from 100 colors, it may become a daunting task to choose a color that fits your style. The color selection from Pentax K-x draws a bunch of unfair criticism from the Pentax community and perhaps the outsiders of Pentax community. I don't understand why is there complaints on addition of choices. I always like choices. Pentax or any other companies and retailers will not hold your hands in sticking with the black body that you dearly love. "No black body, no business with me" would be a silly saying as the black color is one of the four default colors in US and I think the majority will still stick with the black color. But why complain on something that Pentax makes in turning its entry level camera interesting with color choices besides the improvements on its features. It is debatable if the color choices is a business risk to take. If I were Pentax, I will start small like 25 colors with some of the limited edition colors hand picked by Hin and try to draw less criticism from the black only and the so-called enthusiasts and the black-only professionals who treat any change from the norm as childish, teenage and not a good idea.
Perhaps, the toy and carton animation like color edition draws the most criticism but people should note that Pentax plans for 100 limited order for this type of color. My son at 7 was jaw dropping when he sees this camera and I ask him for an honest answer if he wants his Daddy to go for one in Christmas, his answer is a definite NO. But does that make me and my son think less of Pentax, a definite NO for sure. Quite on the contrary, we think more positivelt about Pentax and I feel a proud Daddy to show my son that his Daddy's blog is behind a unique company with bold and out of the box thinking.
And many complain on OnlinePhotographer on the display of Pentax K-x in Japan in store
