New photographer


I've never owned my own camera before but took the plunge last year and bought a k-r based on comparisons of features with other brands of the same price.

I took it with me on an overseas trip recently and enjoyed using it with the kit lens.

I'm still very new at photography and haven't had a lot of time to learn it but I hope to improve eventually.

Welcome and great choice of camera. the K-r is a very good camera at it's price point. There's a LOT of information and knowledgeable people around here, drop any questions and I'm sure you'll get pretty fast responses!

Enjoy the camera, i've recommended the kr to several friends
looking forward to seeing some of your pictures (I'm at my most productive when i take those overseas trips - when everything is new to you there is lot's of low hanging fruit so to speak

I had a K110D for 4 years, then I bought a K-r, too, in January of last year. A great DSLR, that my wife has now ... Then I got bitten by the GAS/LBA bug and procured a used K-7 for myself to later sell it for a new K-5.

My point? Thanks to this great forum, I have ramped up fairly quickly and really enjoying much more my (our) DSLRs. Ask questions and do not be shy. Welcome.

Salut, John le Frog

Welcome to the herd. I have taken pictures with a 35 and recently with a DSLR; not quite ready to be called a photographer but I enjoy it all the same and that is what it it is really all about..

Don't be shy, share some of yours.
