Newbie to DSLR

Hello everyone!

I'm vivas! from miami! I'm brand new to the world of dslr's, but always had an interest in them. My girlfriend bought me a k-30 for my birthday which I'm really happy about. I hope I can get advice from this forum and really start my camera without auto mode.

One question, should I update the firmware in my camera or is not really necessary?

Thanks

FW usually makes the camera better, so yes, I would upgrade

And congratz on a good gf, I had to buy my wife her own camera so we don't have to fight over the camera

Oh, sorry, welcome to the forum!

I would upgrade the firmware, but make sure you read the instructions carefully and follow them to the letter. You don't want to brick your lovely new camera. The K-30 is an awesome camera! Congrats. I think you'll love it! :-)

(Your girlfriend sounds like an awesome gal, by the way!)

Nice GF you have there, had to buy my own K-30, !

But did get my SO a P&S last year, she is also interested in making photos, am thinking of getting her a bridge camera this year (Pentax, ofc, so maybe an X5 or similar), so she then can eventually get a DSLR as well.

The K-30 is a very decent camera, justly deserving the reviews it has been getting so far.

Get her a Q!
My wife just loves her new Q-10 and during our recent trip we ended up taking equally many pictures
