New to Pentax

Hi there,
My name is Mary and I'm from South Australia. My huband bought me a new camera today, it's a pentax X5. I thought I would join this forum, so that I could get as much advice as I can, and hopefully have some problems solved. I dare say the problem is with me and not the camera.
I've only ever used ordinary camera's that you just point and shoot without any zoom what so ever, so this will be my stepping stone to something better.
I'm looking forward to learning new things.
Cheers Mary

Welcome to the forum Mary, I'm sure you'll get all the help you need here from the friendly members. When you said X5 did you mean K-5? If so go to the K-5 forum.

Hi eaglem, I'm sure that it's an X5 both the box and the user manual say it's an X5, but I'll still look through the forums to see if I can get some advice and answers to a problem that I have, in taking photo's in zoom.

cheers Mary

Welcome to the forum, there's lots of good stuff in here, can't find what you need just ask.

You'll find a few other Aussies kicking about in here, just to make you feel at home.

Ah yes, just did a quick review read on the Pentax X-5 which I had no idea existed. I'm sure you'll find other members here who have purchased that camera that will be able to help you.
