Mabuhay! from the Philippines

Hi all... Finally bought my first SLR just 2 weeks ago and already loving it. I'm just overwhelmed at the moment with all the info I'm getting. Also bought 4 photography books together with the camera purchase.

Welcome to the boards gremlin

after looking at your profile I gather your new camera is the Pentax *ist DS - all this new information gets scrambled in the brain but after a month or so it will all come together. Have fun

Thanks all... You're so right Keith... everything's swirling in my head right now. For now, I'm setting ISO to 400 and working from Av. Best to learn things one at a time.

I'll be in Chiang Rai, Thailand a week from now for an office outing. Got 2 sets of rechargeable batteries and 2 pcs of 2GB SD cards. Only thing lacking at the moment is what's behind the eyepiece. Gotta work on that this week.

Hi everyone, also new here (actually been lurking for a few months now). This is a great place and I hope I can share the beauty of the Philippine Islands through my Photos.
