I'm new here... Hello!

Hi everyone,

I'm a owner of a brand new pentax K-x since 3 weeks ago, it is my first
personally owned DSLR and I'm enjoying it greatly.

I've tested a few borrowed Nikons before and whyle they were great,
I'm quite impressed with my K-x as I bought it for it being less expensive
then Nikon with similar features and picture quality.

However, I find my K-x to take digital pictures closer to film grain vs Nikon.

Anyhow, so yeah, Hello everyone, glad to be here!

Welcome. As another K-x owner, I know you will enjoy your camera. The high iso is fantastic.

I'll piggyback on this thread... =)

My wife and I have been Pentax SLR users since the late 1970's (ME Super and ME Super Program).

I recently bought her a used *ist DS (it is in excellent shape) as our 1st DSLR.

In between we've done a lot of point and shoot with an Olympus Freedom 35mm and a couple of Fujifilm Finepix 2800's.

QWe are both natives of western Massachusetts (where the torandoes hit yesterday) but now live in northern Illinois.

Got me K-x not long ago I loving it as well.
In low light where you get blurry photos on most cameras the K-x with 6400 ISO don't.
My K-x came very useful for my brother's graduation, I needed that ISO.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

BTW, I just found out you can set the K-x to have "100-12800 ISO" in the settings, haven't tested 12800 yet however.

I'm guessing it must get quite grainy/pixels in low light.
