My name is Joe and I just bought my first DSLR. I have been reading many posts here for the last several weeks and ended up buying the Pentax K50. I can't wait to learn how to use it.

I am noticing that. : ) This camera is a whole different animal compared to a point and shoot, I'm sure I will be reading a lot on this forum and asking plenty of questions.

Welcome from Iowa! Actually I found the dslr platform to work for all levels. You start out full auto, then as you learn and get used to the functions you can experiment. Finally you start controlling all inputs yourself. The only time I get in trouble is when I shoot manual and forget to put it back on auto and my wife tries to take a photo! A moon shot was pooched the other night! Oops!! Heard about that one I did! So enjoy that new camera and have fun!!

My constant "rookie" mistake is leaving the camera in timer mode and missing shots. The old "why isn't it firing" moment...

Welcome aboard!
Does the K50 have TAv mode? If so, that's super-flexible.
