Hi everyone.

I'm not a complete newbie to photography, but I am when compared to many who've been taking photos for years. My first camera was a 3 megapixel compact, which was really bulky. It never really sparked my interest.

Afterwards I bought myself a superzoom. I learned the basics with it as it gave me a lot more room to work than a compact. It still functions well and it is really handy when travelling light; I took it to Italy with me and it served me well there. It didn't take me too many months until my hunger for something bigger and better grew. In 2008 I was looking for a DSLR. I asked for some advice, read some reviews, and eventually ended grabbing a Pentax kit. It simply was the best bang for the buck and I felt I didn't need to stop for the cheap amateur end of the DSLR line.

Welcome, it's nice see more Finns here. You don't happen to be related to Tatu (same last name as your nickname here)?
