Hi there

Hi All.. my name is Arudatu, I'm from Indonesia.

I use Pentax K-r with double kit. although photography is not a new thing for me, this camera is my first camera. My Father suggest to buy Pentax, and it turns out to be a great camera. small but very powerful.

in many comparison, it said that one of the cons of this camera is the small resolution. but I think it can't be said that way. although it's small but it's in 300 dpi (@ the same level of camera canon came out with 72 dpi and the picture taken with its kit lens is not as good as my K-r

Welcome! And don't worry about the dpi numbers; they only relate to how an image is printed or displayed. Your Kr's sensor resolution is about 3000 dpi, and the Canon's is about the same. But the Pentax kit lens IS better than Canon's. Have fun!
