Hello from Cambridge!


I suppose I'm a prospective Pentaxian, I finally chose my first DSLR to be the K-3. I was deciding between Nikon D7100 and the K-3 but after holding both of the cameras in my hands yesterday, the K-3 just felt better. I also like the weather sealing, especially when it comes down to the protection from dust and sand, this will be extremely useful for me.

I have a lot to learn when it comes to photography, but I enjoy shooting street photography and people. I also like the occasional makro, but I almost never shoot sports. I move between UK and the Middle East and I'm always inpired when 'comparing' how people live in each country - I'd love to document the differences, if only for myself and my close ones. Which is what partly drove me to getting a DSLR, because the point and shoot is just not enough anymore.

I'll have many questions, sometimes silly, so bear with me.

Welcome! No question is too silly, at least not if you want to learn
Can't wait to see your street photography, it's something that i admire, but am pretty terrible at. And it sounds like you do some interesting work!

Welcome! I don't think anybody here would know what a silly question is - we all ask too many of them The only downside to ask for advice here is that you probably will get too many... Most of it good, though.

Welcome to the forum and welcome to Pentax, the Middle East ate my F3s back in the day, that's why I changed to LXs.
