Hello from Germany

Hello Pentaxians,

I live in Germany. I have been using Pentax since the early 1980s, starting with a ME-super then. Now I own a K-1 for little bit more than a year, it is my first digital camera (I did not want to change before they offer a full frame). There are many new things for me and I have found most advice in this forum, so I decided now to register here.

My photographic interest is nature / landscape, and I want to learn how to take photos of fish and shrimps in the aquarium. For that, I am just exploring the flash capabilities of the K-1 system. Another topic is how to get really sharp shots with a 400mm lens, I got to know already and have to work out shutter up, electronic shutter, live view, when SR ON or OFF, etc.

With best regards
Nuftur

Welcome to the forum.

In terms of Pentax, I like you... used my K20Ds for a full eight years, waiting for the first Pentax FF offering.

To date I still believe the K1 to be a great piece of kit... all my "Ladies" now behave as they used to back in LX days.
