I know I was amazed that I have the old firmware as I have no battery issues at all...initial batteries that came with the camera when I got it Christmas Day still going strong! :eek:


Thanks for links guys, much appreciated...;)

Totally with you! I still have the batteries that came with my camera too, been shooting daily since Christmas Day. No idea how many I have taken...how do I find that out? I have the old firmware though, yet to update.

Yes I am using The DAL 18-55mm kit lens. I also have the other kit lens DAL 50-200mm and a Tamron 28-80mm fs 3.5 AF and an SMC PENTAX-K 135mm f3.5 . Would any of those be better? the last two I was given and haven't yet used.

Thank you all. I knew that the camera would take time to get used to and ages to learn. I have managed a few pictures that I am pleased with and I guess I need to look at what went right there. I guess the fact that I was thrilled with my first couple of shots, like this one of my daughter kitty | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
has caused me to be a tad cross with myself since

This is more typical and yes it does happen outside but a lot less. I noticed this one said it was not stabilised which was interesting as I thought I'd waited...guess not! Probably the issue?

Thank you for your quick replies. I am not using & infact don't own a tripod...maybe need to invest. It may well be me moving. I knew about waiting for the SR after reading that here before :) so do wait but will definitely play with the shutter time, thank you. I will try & post a couple of shots to see if you pros can help this old gal out!

Thanks again!

So before anyone shouts at me that it's not the camera...I know it's me! I need help!

K-X is my first DSLR...been using a Canon S3i Powershot for years with good results but limitations. Dh got me the Pentax K-x for Christmas after months of saving & lots recommendations and much pleading! ;)

So I have spent the last month madly taking photos of all kinds on every setting. So why do so many STILL look slightly out of focus/blurry...what simple thing am I not doing??? I am sure it's me being a dullard!!:D Just fed up of my family and friends asking why my pictures are not as good now I have a new camera. Who is willing to advise before I go bonkers :)
I am using kit lens...and find best results on AV/P but auto makes my pictures awful!!

Hi there!
After a lifelong love of photography I finally ventured into the DSLR world on Christmas Day after my Dh gave me a K-X:D. Glad I found this place! Look forward to lots of great advice!
