Hello from Texas

I have been shooting film in Nikon and Canon SLRs for years. Finally broke down and caught up with the modern age and bought a point and shoot Fuji Film and liked it but was very limited compared to my SLRs so I finally bought a k5. WOW I do not know why I waited so long. Did a lot of research on DSLR cameras and for the money the k5 was my choice. I just thought my film cameras could do a lot. I am blown away with what this camera can do. I am just learning the digital world through the DSLR so if anybody has any tips I would appreciate any tips.
Thanks Senior Captain

Welcome to the forums! I've had my K-5 for a while now, but still get blown away by what it can do. Tips? Enjoy

And I'd recommend shooting RAW, and spending some time getting into darkroom work the digital way. It's just incredible what can be pulled out of those RAW files.
