New K-X photos / first impressions
Posted By: Bob photo 4 life, 08-25-2010, 11:53 PM

I couldn't decide if I should post this here or in the DSLR discussion, I'm sure it can be moved if not appropriate for this section.

My new K-X arrived today so right after work I went out and snapped a few, mostly on auto as the light was fading quickly.

It is not as small or as noisy as I thought it might be. The lenses are surprisingly light, I have the 55-300 but have not tried that one yet. The controls are fairly intuitive but I have started on the manual!

I really like the info screen, I don't think I will miss having one on top (my SF-1 has that). The zoom rings seem a little stiffer than I would have thought, but my other lenses are all at least 20 years old.

These are my first DSLR photos...

1/125 f11 ISO 400

1/200 f13 ISO 200

1/500 f8.0 ISO 200

This section is where all photos should be posted unless you're trying to diagnose some sort of problem with your camera

Your first photos look nice, clear, crisp, and sharp! Hope you're enjoying the camera
