Got my first DSLR (K-x)

Hello all!
So earlier this year, I bought a high-end P&S camera, thinking DSLRs were for "pros" and I wouldnt need it to fill my needs,

well, as I shot more and more pictures with that camera, more and more I realized that it didn't do what I wanted it to do. That's when I realized I needed a DSLR. (my close friends are photographers, so they recommended me to get a dslr.)

After looking into the entry models, I wasn't too sold or moved by what were offered by Canon and Nikon. Then, I saw the release of K-x few days later. Since I'm a big fan of the color red, I decided to go with that one.

I waited until K-x was into some reviewers' hands, and I waited for their reviews.. I was sold on the low noise at high sensitivity.

So here I am, with the red K-x. Hello!

Great choice. I've heard nothing but good things. Compared to the other cameras in its price range, the KX is miles ahead.

I was in that same boat. Picked up a high-end superzoom point and shoot a couple years back, and was totally unhappy with it once I started getting into photography. Started getting annoyed when I needed to go into the menu, press 15 buttons in the right order, do a dance for the magic camera gods, and sing "I'm a little teapot" just to switch to the shoddy manual focus or change the metering point. I suppose that's another story though.

Enjoy the camera, and enjoy the forums-welcome!
