Hello from West Virginia


I'm from Brazil but currently here in Poca, WV on a business training.

In the past (15 years ago or more) I started using SLR cameras (Canon AE-1) and then slowly changed to P&S cameras (Canon and Minolta) mainly because in Brazil you can get robbed very easily while carring a bigger camera around.
Then I moved into P&S digital cameras back in 2001 and started to get very upset about their picture quality...

So this year I've finally decided to come back to SLR cameras and Pentax K100D Super looked like a very good option.

I hope you can help me out in my transition to better pictures!

Hi Magnus, welcome to the forum.

I often wondered about cameras and foreign travel. There are some places here where I wouldn't go with my equipment.

Hello, Magnus

Sorry to hear about the dangers of carrying around camera equipment in your country. I hope you enjoy being a member here. It's a great group to learn about your camera and to discuss photography.

I'm sure I'll need some help from more experienced photographers.
