Hello from Central Victoria, Australia!

G'day all!

Have been lurking around these forums for a few weeks now, and finally getting around to joining up!
Santa (& my credit card) gave me a new black k-r for Christmas this year, along with the 18-55mm lens and a 16Gb Lexar Class 6 SDHC card.

Started digital photography many years ago with a Kodak DX4330 that died after a couple of years. Then I grabbed a Canon S2is, that is still going (albeit with a few minor problems) after taking in excess of 15,000 shots, decided the time & funds & pricing were right to grab my first SLR.

Was originally going to get a k-x, had researched it all, but I got an amazing price (AU$677) for the k-r, so jumped at it.

Now comes the fun part of finding out how to use it to it's maximum! Hope to pop up in more than a few threads on here

Later,
Snowman

G'day mate.
Wow, you really picked up a bargain in the K-r; definitely a decent step up from the K-x, and a great little toy. Enjoy that, and your time here.

Welcome to the forum Snowman.

I am also a new member here - joined yesterday.
Enjoy your new Kr - go out, take lots of photos, and don't be afraid to experiment.
That is the only way to learn new equipment

Yeah, thankfully JB hifi had the friends and family sale early December, and they had 15% off cameras, and the k-r was already $100 off on special, so $896 came down to $677
Only trouble was since family also put in for some of the cost as my present, I had to sit it under the tree and look at it for over two weeks!!

Thanks to both of you!

I'm with you - I'd rather nature photography than people. It just seems that my photo's come out better that way.
