Norwegian cheapskate here :D

hello. my name is ole, i am sixteen years of age and i love to photograph. i used to play around with a nikon coolpix before, but i recently bought an SLR (2 months ago). i was gonna get a pentax k10d. looked around in lots of stores, but it was nowhere to be found. then, one day, i saw a samsung gx10 in a photo-store. i already knew that this was the exact same as the k10d, and it cost 4/5 of the price - so i decided to be a cheapskate. five minutes later, i walked happily out of that store with the gx10, a camera bag and a 4 gb memory card.

i recently moved in an apartment on my own in a town about 70 km away from my home, due to my school being in that town. i really enjoy living alone! it's so stressless and comfortable - and i manage to keep my apartment clean too. just bought a macbook, too.

anyway - this forum seems like an awesome place! my first impression is that the level of politeness here is at a level never before seen on the internet. i will try to help maintaining that!

You are not a cheapskate,

you are careful with your money. There is a huge difference. Enjoy the forum and your GX10 - a fine camera.

Nice to see more Norwegians here, but I find it strange that you got GX10 cheaper than K10D, in Norway Samsung seems to be more expensive.

But it's basically the same camera, but wrong name :P
