Hello from Alberta, Canada

Where to start...

Once upon a time I was really crazy about photography. I even freelanced for a few years doing weddings, families and some model portfolio stuff.

Then I got sick, burned out and eventually left the field. Flash forward a few years and I finally got my first digital SLR - a Pentax ist DS2. It's been a very good intro DSLR, but it felt very restrictive compared to my trusty old PZ-1 film SLR.

To make a long story short, the itch has finally and strongly returned and I'm encouraging it by having bought a shiny, new K-7. Wow! What a camera! My PZ-1 envy is more than satisfied.

I have to say that lurking on these boards has humbled me more than I could have imagined. The talent and creativity here is absolutely astounding. I think it will be a while before anything I capture comes close to what's done here on a regular basis.

Thanks to everyone here for providing such an amazing place to connect with other Pentax users!

Welcome iocchelli,
Hope you enjoy the Forum...Yes there`s a lot of info to be gained thru this site. Kudos to you for pickin` the K7... it was on my wish list but the K20 won me over due to having the K10 before(same batteries & grip).
Sure hope you have better weather... I`m in the rather wet,flooded area of the province but still keeping dry(medicine Hat...on a hill,lol ...)
Cheers !!!
