Salam from Dubai ^^,

Hello, I decided joining pentaxforums because I've been reading and doing research about mirrorless cameras for over a month, and every time I visit this website, I get a message on the top saying "welcome back guest", so I decided to not be a guest anymore and join

I am a 30 years old male from the United Arab Emirates - Dubai , and I am one of those who kickstarted an international photography competition ( HIPA )
I've been into photography ever since I was young. Started with Film, and learned my way through, and of course with many wasted photos at the dark room.
In the digital era, I started with Canons for a very short time, then straight away jumped to #TeamNikon for around 6 years now.

I used many brands like sony, canon, leica, Fuji, olympus, and here are some of the Nikon cameras I used:
Nikon D40
Nikon D80
Nikon D40x
Nikon D60
Nikon D300
Nikon D300s
Nikon D90
Nikon D7000
Nikon D3x
Nikon D4
and used the D4 for a short while then stopped for months. The only shooting I did was for instgram with a iphone.

A month ago, I decided I want a new OK camera, and just before purchasing the D800e, I stopped, did a lot of research, fell in love with Pentax, saw a video review by Kay from DigitalRev TV, and fell in love with the Yellow K-01, ordered it, and it is on a plane now from somewhere on the other side of the world. I also want to get the Q10, but after I play around with the K-01..

Thank for reading ^^,
