Hello from Oakmont, PA - Home of the 2007 US Open

Hello! I'm a newb who just picked up a used Pentax *ist Ds from ebay and hope
to receive it later this week! This is my first digital SLR so I'll have a lot of experimenting and questions for all of you!

Welcome to the forums, Glenn!

I look forward to seeing your first pictures from your new camera. If you haven't done so already, you may want to take a look through the manual so that you are familiar with it before it arrives. I've attached a link below.

If there are things you still need help with, post up a question and the people here can help you out.

Enjoy your stay here!

Welcome to the forum. There are a few of us from Pennsylvania, most in the east though.
My brother played Oakmont, I believe, in the second round of US Open qualifiers.

Welcome Glenn:
Always nice to see another Pentaxion from PA. I would say in your area you'll have some great shooting to do. Pittsburgh is great after dark. Night shots are awesome.
