Sorry to revive an old thread...

Any luck on finding one? Getting more shots in on the K70, I'm finding I'd like to get my face off the camera a bit more...

Thanks!

Welcome! Photography in general was/is quite the learning curve. Digital is another animal. A couple things I've done to alleviate the disappointment when importing photos in for post processing was to; use TAv & Av mode. This has helped immensely with learning the camera and the exposure triangle. Finally had a successful day of shooting little league football on a very sunny day in manual. Also, watch the EV meter in live view and pay attention the histogram on the quick preview. If you really want to get after it, use bracketing. I haven't tried it yet but, you can take 3 shots at once at 3 different exposures. This should help with learning what works best for different scenarios. Another really easy thing to do that has made a huge difference for me, is to take a couple test shots, get dialed in for your environment. Best part they're free! It's really not as daunting as it seems. You'll have it figured out in no time.

Thanks for the advice! I've seen a couple shoots on youtube but, it would be beneficial to seek out some photographers book of work for inspiration.

Yes! It seems all I could find was "The Camera Store" guys and "DigitalRev." I'm still not sure if The Camera Store guys hate Pentax or not but, I feel they did do some fair reviews. Just wish there was more out there. It'd be neat if they could get their gear in the hands of some of the big names on there.

New to photography - looking for advices on the Pentax system

I have limited experience in the photography world. However, after loads of research I purchased a K70 with the 18-135 kit lens. I also picked picked up a DA50 1.8. For the money, I don't think it can be beat. The kit lens is very sharp and has been a great all around lens. The "nifty fifty" is incredibly sharp and provides beautiful bokeh. I know you will get a lot of folks praising the KP. Which is a great camera but, I would at least look at the K70. It really is a great, budget friendly option.

I did find this to be a bit of bummer when researching a k70 purchase. I really enjoy doing the research and youtube is a nice platform to get info and hands on reviews. Just not a ton of stuff for Pentax out there. Thankfully, a co-worker is a pentaxian and pointed me to the brand and this forum.

Learning Curve for K70

I too, recently purchased a K70. It is my first dslr and I love it! From what I've read, the move from Pentax body to Pentax body is pretty intuitive. I'm sure there is a bit of learning curve just to get fluid with it. I've had mine out a handful of times and I'm starting to get comfortable with it. With your previous experience I'm guessing you wont have much of an issue with navigating through Av/TAv/Manual modes. Probably the best thing I've learned is switching to a single point of focus. Good luck and enjoy!

Went to the park the other day to do some Maternity shots of my Wife. Used the 50mm at 1.8. I think they turned out well! I am very novice and open to tips and tricks! Let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking!
