I've turned my counter over. I'm now at IMGP 0090 and counting. I don't pay attention to this kind of thing so both shots 9999 and 0001 came as a surprise. When I opened the card I got two folders Pentax 100 and Pentax 101. What the hey? I thought, then I remembered that I was at 99?? as of earlier this week. Typically both shots 9999 and 0001 were "let's see what will happen" 9999 is reasonably OK, experiment in wide dof, 0001 is kinda poop, experiment in wide dynamic range that didn't quite make it. It would never have seen the light of day (so to speak) if it weren't the famous 10,000th shot.
First 9999, kit lens (fitting don't you think?) f19 at 1/90. I was also trying to capture some of the detail of construction of the piece.


Just so you know what you're looking at, here's an earlier shot.


Now for the turnover shot. I'm a brand new n00b so be kind! I'd say that the biggest hurdle that digital imaging has yet to overcome is limited DR, as this shot amply proves, I was hoping to capture the play of light and shadow on the yellow and white tulips. What I got instead was either badly overexposed "light" tulips or badly underexposed "shadow" tulips. IIRC, I would have been able to capture this on fujichrome (my slide film of choice) much better. *drum roll* IMGP0001! kit lens, f11 at 1/750 (of course exposure would have been easier with darker flowers!)

Well, be sure to post it so we can all call you a newbie! Just make sure it's not a "dust check"

IIRC, I recently saw a post on DPR where someone was saying their camera (DS like mine) just turned 50K.

NaCl(and I thought 10K was a lot!)H2O

Thanks Dan,
As to how long it took, I was a very slow starter. I got my camera about 2 years ago but it wasn't until May of last year that I hit 1000. So 1 year to reach 1000, and 1 year to go from 1000 to 10,000!
