Kiwi Newbie :)

Kiwi living in Auckland, New Zealand. Signed up after many google searches led me to finding the answers here.

Just been experimenting with Pentax bellows and now contemplating the K7 so can mod my existing *ist DS for dedicated IR.

Used Pentax film cameras for years, plus a lovely old Seagull when I was at school.

Currently managing a Photo Centre (fujifilm) while I attempt to finish my studies part time.

Right country, right camera, right forum. What can go wrong from here?

I bought my K100D to have a fighting chance to capture New Zealand's beauty. I still have a shot from Mission Bay, Auckland where I tried to capture a lovely red boat in the evening sun with a really old, cheap P&S (2MP, no DR whatsoever, it has a webcam mode...). The image sort of reminds me of the real scene but with the K100D it would have been sooo much better.
