Hello From East Coast US

Well for the first time I have stepped out of the point and shoot world and into DSLR. Although I have had a intermediate point and shoot for years, I never really utilized its capabilities. My old camera is a a Cannon a590 IS and I will continue to use it since it is compact and really does a great job. Now I am stepping into a K-500 and about 50 books on photography. Hope to learn much as I embark on a new hobby.

Welcome to the forums. Teach yourself to use the search functions; many of us have already found out how to do certain things, and you can save a fair bit of frustration. I know I did when I got my first and only digital SLR.
