Greetings from the Pacific Northwest

Hey, I am a very amateur photographer who has never snapped a pic with anything other than a cheap point and shoot. I recently purchased a Pentax K20 from a friend who was upgrading, and I am hooked. How did a gadget freak like me not get into photography before?!?!

This forum has already been helpful with information on dust in the viewfinder and sports photography. I really want to be a photographer, not just a camera operator and I will use this forum as a tool to help me with that goal.

Welcome to the forum, K20D is a great camera, I use 'em all day every day.

Sounds like life's about to get expensive for you.

Hi Scotty Dog and welcome.

Life could get expensive if you don't choose wisely. If you do, it's value for money and not expensive at all!

Good luck with your new hobby. Many of us like gadgets, but some of them stick for life!
