hi all, new K10D just arrived!

Hi everybody,

I just wanted to officially say hi (I've posted a couple of times already in the forum), and announce that my wife's (and mine, by proxy) K10D has FINALLY arrived!! Now I can proudly put the K10D userbar in my signature....was holding off in breathless anticipation of this moment

Anyway, hello to all...I'm sure my wife and I will be getting a great deal of information from these forums, and hopefully we can contribute more as we learn more about what we're doing. We're both pretty new to SLR photography (both digital and film), so it'll be quite the learning curve.

You both will love the K10D. But.... I found that the default settings are not perfect right out of the box. My advice, study the manual and play with the settings - especially the "sensitivity" or ISO setting.

Right after I got my K10D (about 10 months ago), we went on a short vacation to the Virgin Islands. When I got back, my photos seemed to be a bit grainy. After looking at the metadata, I found that the "auto" ISO setting decided to use ISO 1600 for all of my daytime photos!! These photos should have all been shot at ISO 100. I even took some pictures in RAW to be sure that they would turn out perfect.... Oh well.

I now have an excuse to go back to the Virgin Islands... :-)
