Hello from Ontario, Canada

Hi. I have had a K100D for about a month now and I'm just getting used to an SLR again. I traded up from a Canon Powershot A70 P&S, but before that I shot 35mm for 15 years using my trusty Nikon FG.
I went on a spending spree to setup my new business, so I hook up my new Pentax to a 24inch iMac and terabyte of disk space. I am having fun taking pictures again.

How do you feel your shots look compared to the point and shoot ones?

Thanks for the welcome.

The banana bread was a paying job because I did their website. I have to say, my P&S would take great pictures, but the depth of field wasn't there.

Point & shoot cameras, especially a good one, can take a perfect picture, and that's not what it's about. I think the SLR brings the user back into the equation.

Probably why the first 300 shots on the SLR were terrible. I was just used to pointing and shooting.

As for storage, I am amazed at how fast the USB is on the camera. I have an SD reader, and I haven't bothered with it yet. A couple of hundred pics imports very fast.

Welcome to the forums!

Steeltown, eh? My godchildren live around there, close to the Limeridge Mall. I'm sure you've found some great places to shoot (not to mention the botanical gardens, and Dundurn Castle!).

Can't wait to see your pictures!
