Hi from New Zealand :-)

Hey everyone, I'm Justin and I'm a UK expat living in sunny New Zealand. I just picked up a K-x for silly money locally after having sold my previous Sony NEX with some old FD lenses. I've had Canon DSLRs previously, coming up through the 300 / 350 to the 400 and then to two (yes, two) 550d's. I got a bit tired of the handling of the NEX though so I decided to 'go back' to SLR land and when I found this K-x, I jumped on it. It only has the standard kit lens but I'm happy with it so far, I'll try to contribute some images once I get finished moving house (!!!).

My interests are computers (which I do for a living), photography (specifically night shooting, long exposure, astro, light painting), music, movies and cars.

Cheers :-)

Welcome Justin, from another ex-pat living in NZ. I joined this forum a few years ago and it's been very informative and helped me no end with photography. All the best and enjoy..

Hey thanks for all the welcomes everyone, much appreciated. I forgot to mention first 'real' introduction to photography came a few years ago when my dad unearthed his old K1000 and lenses. I chucked some cheap Kodak film in it and shot a few rolls and then had the images developed directly to CD. I kind of got the bug then and have been using mirrorless and DSLR ever since.
