Back in the fold.

Some 25 years after my last Pentax camera, and after some informed nagging from a friend, I finally took the plunge and bought a K-r with a couple of 'starter' lenses.

I have to admit to being a little 'lost' right now with the wealth of features the camera provides... but after some experimentation, I'm beginning to get the hang of it.

This of course is one of the joys of the digital revolution. In the old days of film, 'learning could be an expensive process. From now on with the Pentax K-r, I can run off hundreds of shots bracketing them as often as I like with all sorts of adjustments without without extra cost.

I doubt I'd ever be an 'expert' but if I can take one or two shots to be proud of amongst the hundreds... I think I'll be happy enough.

So now it's off to the forum proper to learn all I can about the camera and try to renew old skills. Thanks for having me aboard.

I know a lot about The Gang. They say he was a real dick, even as a kid.

Weirdest thing is, he got killed after losing a hunting dog that he borrowed, and said the owner owed HIM money.

This is why Australia is known as "the clever country"...

.... but yeah 'Alfalfa' seems to have been a horrible little git. Even so it was a pretty stupid and pointless way to die! .
