G'day from Australia :)

Hi all,

I have a K-50 and had a K-x before that. I live in West Gippsland, Victoria which sadly is starting to lose the country feel as house development encroaches.

I enjoy attempting to photograph the lovely wrens and finches we have, also the various parrots and wedge-tail eagles.
I also do equestrian photography as both of my kids are in pony club and we are also involved in carriage driving. I breed the occasional foal which are fun to photograph

I'm usually on the Auto setting and trying to branch out into Manual and look forward to following the various forums

Welcome from the not-quite-rural Adelaide Hills!

For the type of photography you enjoy, getting off full auto should improve your images. There is an enormous amount of information here: enjoy

You should feel right at home here as we have lots and lots of Ozzies onboard here, you just met three of them but there are tons more still to meet and help if you need it.

So, welcome aboard!! Glad you could join us!

As one mentioned take that K-50 off auto and you'll enjoy it more. I have one too, mine's white and I've named it the White Knight. I use M mode most often (because my first Pentax camera was a K1000 film camera) but have used TAV depending on what I'm shooting, but there is TV, and SV that's better than auto any day.
