Back in the game!!!!

So back around Christmas I gave my brother my pentax k100ds to use up at school when he was bored. I picked up a canon 10d in the mean time and thought it was a great camera but still not as good as my k100ds so I finally had enough with the canon and sold all my canon stuff for $350 and bought a black kx last night for $488 with kit lens off eBay from ccr camera. I think it maybe a little hard to get use to the 2.7inch screen from the 1.8inch screen I was using before.lol

Definitely a step up, though! Enjoy the camera

I recently got a Canon 30D and am not really happy with it.
I'm giving it to the wifey since it doesn't compare to the images I make with the K100Ds.
She get to use a large camera with me using the compact K100Ds..lol!

Yeah I was getting maybe one or two shots out of it that I could use every outing and it sucked! The pentax I was always promised good shots and i can't wait for the 4.7 fps that's going to be awesome considering I'm use to 3 fps.lol

ccr might be one of those notorious brooklyn photo dealers -- hard to say what might happen. Sometimes you never get the camera, other times you get a stripped-down kit camera without a warranty. In general it is best to steer clear of anyone you haven't heard of when buying new equipment. Stay away from ebay and stick with BH, Adorama, etc. -- you get what you pay for.

I found this on another forum:

Anyone heard of CCR CAMERA in New York?.....nt [Page 1]: Canon EOS 7D / 50D - 10D Forum: Digital Photography Review

Best of luck.

Whew! That's kinda of a good news huh..but you're not out of the woods yet!
Celebrate once you have the camera in your hands.
Not to scare you or anything but I hope this turns out good for you.
