New Pentax as gift

I received a K-x as a gift and it is my first DSLR. I am sure I will need plenty of help and advise.

Welcome! I am looking forward to the arrival of a K-x myself! What color did you get?

I did get the black, but I think the colors are pretty cool. I just couldn't do it. Oh, and I did buy it as a "birthday gift" to myself. I wish now I would have gotten the 55-300 lens.

New to SLR? Buy rent or steal this book. It is usually available in libraries. Most people recommend this one. I started with it. Helps a great deal. Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera (9780817439392): Bryan Peterson: Books

Welcome here - enjoy the K-x, and you can always get the 55-300 later...
