I am new to this forum. I've been taking photos for a long time. I started with my mom's camera using 120 film and graduated to 35 mm camera in 1972. I purchased my first digital camera in 2005 . A Fugi point and shoot of 1.3 Mega Pixel to introduce myself to digital camera. I loved it, but still used a lot my 35mm camera because at the time digital did not beat film.

I decided to jump all the way into digital photography in 2007. Read camera reviews of many sites such as Digital Camera reviews. I nailled my choice between two camera. The Canon Rebel and Pentax K10D. Finally picked the K10D with the kit lens because if gave me more for the money. I never regretted it. The K10D CCD makes great pictures.(Still is rated as a great camera, updated to FW version

It still is my only camera and I made over 7000 shots both in raw and jpeg (Adobe RGB format) (from the start I decided to shoot both format at the same time),

Instead of changing camera body for more pixel «Small budget» I decided to build up my photo gear and to buy good glass untill I would outgrow my K10D.It still is not the case My best two lens are Pentax DA* 50-135 F2.8 and FA31MM1.8.

Digital is great but is less forgiving than film. Took me a long time to realise it. To fully use the potential of a digital camera you need to really understand your camera. I now use mostly manual mode but still makes mistakes. I prefer portrait, candid shoots and nature photos.
