Introducing Myself

I'm going to "Star Wars" tonight so I'll make this quick!

I'm a dinosaur from the days of using film which I find a lot easier to do than using these digital units (unless I'm using auto).
I have had two pocket point & shoot (HP, Canon), I also have a bridge unit (Panasonic FZ200) and a DSLR (Pentax K50). I got the K50 in hopes of being able to use my old K-mount lenses.......probably the wrong reason for getting the K50 but I also thought it would be a better portrait camera. Think I'm just trying to justify getting it!

I'm not the greatest on computers or at reading instructions but I somehow can usually figure stuff out if I sit here long enough......

I'll keep looking in the "search" section at first and If I don't find it what I need there, I' will then lean on the learned on the forum ......... thx for havin' me!

The K-50 is a great camera & being able to use your legacy K Mount lenses is a great reason to buy a Pentax DSLR.

Welcome!
