I bought a new Pentax MX-1

I hope this camera is good. I was going to get the q7 but I thought I would never buy more lens
so I got the mx-1 to carry around. 250.00 and free 2 day shipping seem good to.

You'll get a Manual with the camera. Modes are explained there.

HDR takes three images then merges them into one with higher dynamic range (HDR). The car had moved between shots..
HDR isn't mean't for moving objects. Also best to have the camera on a tripod.

I thought the Pentax mx-1 only used 1 photo for hdr. I'm happy it uses 3

That's the HDR filter, not HDR mode.

You'll dig it. I would suggest either of these cases as well:

Everready style or pouch.

How do you like your Spark? I got the neon green one and am really liking it, the perfect car for Los Angeles. I took it camping in the San Gabriel Mountains last week and thought I'd have to go a bit minimalist but was pleasantly surprised that it held all my gear for four days.

I like my spark but I get a lot of jokes about the cars size. I'm 6'5"
