Hello from Margarita Island

Well, I am not very good at writing, however, Here I am!

This hobby started letīs say seriously , about 3 years ago, when I knew from a neighbour she was taking a photography course. The quest was then to find a camera. Here, we have actually a control exchange. DSRLīs cameras are horribly expensive, So I spent almost a year looking for something affordable. One day, while at Hope Depot, I was passing infronnt of a Panafot shop...and there she was!, She just got my attention in a click: a Tiny, attractive Compact Pentax Optio M50 that besides, was on sale since here everybody craves for either Nikon or Cannon or, at the end Olympus... Me? I felt in love with mine, and from there we started a journey that can count a first prize at one of our local Universities when I took a picture of an old lady in a Rancheria (fishermen Village). Anyway, here I am. Everyday I learn somethinng new. The only rrermark I have is that my Pentax does not perform 100% in the evenings, but who carres. I simply love it!

Welcome! If you will consider a used Kx (can be had for under $400) you will find that camera does extremely well in the evenings. One of the strongest features of the Kx is the high ISO performance. Enjoy!

Hello Kerrowdown, thanks for your kind comment!
Yes, I can say we have all for doing good shots, the only thing is to get organized between the job and the hobby... My goal is to make a living of photography (I know there are too many good photographers in the world)... in the meantime, I have a long way to run! :-)[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/MERCADEO/CONFIG%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-1.png[/IMG][IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/MERCADEO/CONFIG%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]

In fact I am starting to consider this option. I have seen several combos via internet, And I have been told that Pentax is about to release soething in between a compact and a DSRL... around mid year... so we will see. in the meantime I am gathering the funds...
