Newbie wirth K-50 (red)

Hi there,

I'm from Sweden, and a happy owner of a K-50. I bought it a month ago and it is my first "Quality Camera" so I don't have any experience at all when it comes to this kind of cameras.

Just found this forum so I haven't really had time to look around yet but from the little I've seen so far it feels like here is help to be found (if anything happens) no doubt about it.

Welcome aboard! You've got yourself a wonderful camera there, and I'm happy that we've been seeing more and more K-50 users lately!

Welcome aboard! It's a helpful place. Remember don't limit your reading to K-50 information, most of the cameras are very similar and you'll learn a lot.

Välkommen till PF!
Great to see a fellow Swedish Pentaxian!
We are a rare breed indeed
I hope you enjoy your K-50, I know I enjoyed my K-30 walking in the rain on a tour at Djurgården the other day and I was happily snapping picture after picture.
My friend (a Canon user) just looked at me with bigh eyes and is now thinking of upgrading his old Canon
Lemme know if you are living around Sthlm area.

Cheers
Yos

Thank you for your warm welcoming. I did choose the red K-50 so my friends (all owners of black cameras) would have something to complain about ;-)

The reason why I bought a Pentax is that I've been a sucker for Pentax cameras since I was a kid (early 80's). An older guy in my neighborhood was a photographer for a lokal newspaper and also a really good wildlife photographer. I still remember one time when he came back from a trip to Alaska and invited me to look at some pictures. He also showed me his cameras - all of them Pentax. However it took me 30 years to buy one myself.

I promise to post some images soon.

@Yos: Yes i live in the Stockholm area.
