newbie from Canada but a filipino

Best thing that happened to me today (finding this site and becoming a member). Thank you so much for the warm welcome Adam.
Just bought a Pentax K-x....don't know much yet about DSLR but I have a pretty vast experience in the film SLR. Been a Pentax lover ever since.......my first one was a Pentax mv (aperture priority). You will be hearing a lot from me guys as I will have tons of questions while tinkering with my new toy.

Regard and God bless you all guys.

You had better be attentive to your wife or your dreams of accessories may not come true.

Welcome to the Forum dear Pentaxian. But why do you need to highlight the Filipino angle? You are simply a good Canadian mate.
I had very many Filipino friends in the Gulf, and they were dedicated hard working folks.

@ nanhi...thanks for the warm welcome...no big deal about the filipino thing...just want to say I'm an Asian from the far east trying to make his dreams come true in the northern hemisphere. been here not too long ago (2 years to be exact) and yes most Filipinos are dedicated and hard working people(thank you)

@ ragingtornado.. thanks, I am enjoying every minute of it.

Mickey, let's come back and revisit this quote in 6 months, okay?

No one practices safe LBA because they think it won't happen to them, but the tragic global figures of those afflicted prove otherwise.

Monching my brother Pentaxian, let me have your email and I will send you the best guide ever written for Pentax DSLRs - better than the Magic L.... and Everything .... by the experts - for a price of course.
Two-thirds of the pages of these paid for guide books are plain general stuff available on the net and in the camera manual itself like specs, buttons on the camera, removing/fitting lenses, supplied software, etc etc.
My guide called Alladins Open Sim Sim Guide is specific to the K20D but will work for most Pentax DSLRs - and its free.
Do share with us your experiences with your camera.
