Film to DSLR

Hi, I just transfer from Film to DSLR this year, owned several camera, Pratika, Zenit, Minolta and some old lens. I found out the K3 for a reasonable price and bought an adapter for my old budies.
Glad to join this community.

Jump right in, the water's fine.

You'll like the manual controls, I'm sure. Make sure you give TAv a try, I find it the most convenient mode while walking around.

Don't get rid of your film cameras. There's still a lot you can do with film and there's great film to be had out there. That's a beauty of the Pentax system, you can have two different systems but actually have the same lenses for both. And welcome to the forums!

Welcome to the forums!

The K3 is certainly a very nice way to move into the digital age, and keeping your old optics makes it just the sweeter. You'll find lots of good information here regarding either, digital or film. So enjoy your stay.

Good thing you kept your old friends. Those lenses will never be replaced.
