Hello from NYC

Hi This is Tony from NYC. Sorry I guess my forum netiquette isn't the greatest. I've already posted about 10 times or so already. I'm an beginner shutterbug. I've had digital cameras going back to 2000 but I got my first Samsung DSLR earlier this year when an online store was clearancing them out. I was shocked by how good the photos came out. The IQ was night and day and I have since gotten hooked to Pentax products after amassing a couple of cheap (but good lenses).

Sony DSC-S75
Canon S400 (in pieces)
Sony DSC-W5 (broken LCD)
Kodak C875
Samsung GX-1L (sold)
Pentax K20D (being delivered)

I'm looking forward to seeing what my new camera can do for me. I'm hoping to hook up with other fellow NYC Tristate area Pentaxians and exchange ideas.

Welcome to the forum. It looks like you've upgraded every time you got a new camera. Good luck with the K20.

Welcome to the forums. There are a few active members on here from the NYC area. The 20D is a pretty nice upgrade--and it sounds like you're moving well past being a beginning shutterbug. Good luck.

Welcome to the forum, you should enjoy the K20D, especially as it's not in pieces or broken LCD...................................................................yet.

Thanks everyone. Yes the K20D will be my most significant upgrade. Funny thing it is almost $200 cheaper than my Sony from 9 years ago and it'll run laps around it. I hope to be taking lots of actions shots during fires (not wishing fire on anyone of course). My dept has the D3 so I'll shoot with that camera for night time operations but I'll be carrying my personal camera to see how it holds up in wet conditions. I bet I could give the D3 a run for its money.

I'm also very excited to see that there is someone out there working on a hacked firmware for the K20D. I'd love to see what the limits the K20D can be pushed beyond what Pentax intended LOL.
