Hello from Central New York


I picked up a K-x 2 years ago when our first grandchild was born. Prior to that I had been using Konica 35mm cameras and lenses. But with a grandchild, I knew I'd want the freedom to shoot an unlimited number of pictures without worrying about the developing costs. I chose the K-x based on its bang-for-the-buck factor, and haven't been disappointed. I got it with the two kit zoom lenses. Later on I picked up an smc FA 50mm f:1.4 lens so I could get some nicer portrait shots than is afforded by the kit lenses. My most recent acquisition is a set of extension tubes for doing macro and near-macro floral photos, something I really enjoyed doing with my old film kit. I got a set with the electrical contacts which is nice as it makes it easy to use small aperture, long shutter to get better depth of field.
