Happy Tech Geek from IL

hey everyone. thought i'd post an introduction of myself. i live in nothern illinois and after several years of dashed hopes have finally gotten a Digital SLR. I just purchased a Pentax (obviously) K10d, with grip and the 18-55 kit lens. i have some old 35mm fixed lenses (a chinnon fixed 50mm and a hanimex fised 135mm) as well from when my parents got married (1982) and they're working just fine, which is very cool. as well as an old vivitar 2000 flash.

i'm still trying to figure out if i updated my firmware right. it said it had 1.00 on it and i dropped 1.2 on it because i couldn't find the transitional updates. the pentax site said to make sure it had versions 1-1.11 on it, but i didn't know if they meant one of or all of them. so i assuemed they were included. however its still not working with the remote program. if anyone has any suggestions or knows where i went wrong, feel free to let me know.

Hey,

Welcome. Nice to see someone else with a Chinon 50mm prime. Whats yours? A f1.7?

As far as the firmware update, i think 1-1.11 means make sure you either have version 1.00 or 1.11 installed before updating.

Take a look on the front of the lens around the glass. You should see (in my case) 1:1.7

Thats one way of determining what the highest aperture of your lens is. The other way is to look on the aperture ring on the lens and see what the lowest number is.
