New to DSLR, pls be nice :)

Hey everyone,

Just signed up to the Forum last night. Thought I'd pop in and say hello.

Very quickly, I'm very new to the DSLR scene. Chose to go with the Pentax K-7 over Canon 50D and Nikon D90 after months of research. Purchased the 18-55mm WR lens kit late last week and had the opportunity to go through the paces over the weekend. So far I am very pleased with my purchase!!

Love taking photos of the family, capturing family events, landscapes and scenery.

Will pop in from time to time to get some ideas or to problem solve so I hope you guys and gals will be nice to a newbie like me.

Anyway, looking forward to developing my skills and hope you are generous in imparting your knowledge and experience to someone starting out like me.


EDIT: Oh, if it makes any difference, I'm from Sydney Australia!

Welcome to the forums! Please don't hesitate to ask questions, as I've discovered that's the quickest way to learn. I think you'll find that there are indeed some very knowledgeable and generous people around here

Remember, we were all newbies once!

Keitha is right: once we were all newbies....! So, show your pics, ask questions.
There are people here eager to share what they know....

Hi Luis,

Welcome here! I just bought a K-7 myself and I am also a beginner DSLR user!
I have been reading this forum a bit longer, I can already tell you it's a very friendly forum.
