Hi Chilichoco!

Welcome to the forums! I see you really jumped in with your purchase! Here's a link I think you may find useful. Ever since someone posted this link, I've been referring to it every now and then, so I hope it helps you too.

The SimCam: Film and Digital Camera Simulator -

One of the best ways for us to help you is when you post a picture when you have a problem. There's lot's of friendly people here, so don't be shy and I hope we'll see some soon!

Have fun!

Welcome to the forum Chilichoco! I think the K10D has a steep learning curve at first, but you'll catch on soon enough. There are a lot of friendly helpful people here, and lots of them have the K10 so you're definitely in the right place!

Enjoy your new camera
