Reading and Watching Until Now

Hi Everyone!
I've been reading through many of the posts and have used some of the information I've found to set up my new K-30. Thanks.
I love to see what others have done and someday soon I'll get brave and put up some of my photos. We are taking a trip to Savannah in Sept. and that will be the first real workout for the K-30.
I've been interested in photography ever since High School days (way back in the 50's) when I got good enough to be the school photographer. For sport events I used my dad's Speed Graphic and flash bulbs that were about the size of a 60 watt light bulb. Back then I developed my own pictures and got them ready for the paper. Those were fun days and a great start.

Hi from another school photographer using Dad's camera. Mine was in the early '80s, using my Dad's Minolta. Learning to do it all manually was a big draw to Pentax, with its dual wheels and intuitive ergonomics for manual control.

Get out and get some pictures!
Welcome aboard.

Welcome, and thanks for the introduction! There are lots of options on digital SLRs, but the basics are still the same as they have always been.

Enjoy your K-30!
