Welcome! Does that mean you haven't got a K-30 yourself yet?

I agree, the best way to teach him is to have one yourself!

The new K30

He bought the K30 to take with him on his trip to America,He is a above knee amputee who is into mountain biking and normaly shoots with a Go Pro for videos and stuff but decided he would like a "Propper" camera so bought the K30 after reading reviews.He has a small click and shoot Canon with him as well and a panasonic Lumix (left at Home) .He is very critical of the photos he takes and will see faults where others may not (think that's his OCD kicking in) I will get him to join the forum when he returns (if I can).He is not one for reading manuals very much (rather plays it by ear or asks his dad who then has to read the manual )and in my twilight years I find that harder to do .lol )
