Hi All from Sparwood B.C.

Just bought a Pentax K10d this last Month or so. Am in the process of Familiarizing myself with it and LENSES which the present one tht came with it.

Am EXCITED Dreams have led me to the K10D even though that Purpose is a little unclear.

We are now exploring a couple of new Lenses as well as the Settings which leave me a little befuddled as well as the 3:2 Ratio.

Even tried a "BULB" Light Painting" Pic the other day but did not let the exposure go long enough.

The Pentax range of DSLR Cameras may replace my real LOVE of the Sony Alpha a3000 from which the colors from the sensor are what I truly need for Producing "Metallic" like Images via PSPx7

Think that may be enough for now as I am RUNNING on adrenalin tonight




From inside the front door - TOO much snow hehehe
Cheers for Years

Welcome from a fellow British Columbian! Just thought you may want to keep the Sony Alpha & NEX, they are not full fledged system cameras but still very compact & versatile.

Thank you MJL

The NEX-F3 was used as a trade for the K10D.

Am now considering the possibility of Selling both the Sony Alpha a3000 & the Samsung NX1000 both with lenses for Newer Pentax once I have become much more familiar with the K10D

Am learning new things about it from a good friend.

About to explore the Pentax 55-300 & 28-80mm Lenses as well as other settings on the camera.

Cheers for Years

I pass through Sparwood a couple of times a year. There's another forum member from there; maybe he's the "good friend" you mentioned? Anyhow, welcome to the club!
