Welcome to the forums Pat, I'm in the Cleveland area now originally from Ashtabula. There are lots of fine area parks in Lake county and also in Cleveland. It's startling to be a good time to get out and take images of the fall colors. Also there are many covered bridges in Ashtabula county also good areas for fall pictures.

Is there a menu setting for various types of batteries? You may have to change the setting to a different type.

How does the build quality of the K-70 compare to the K-200D? I am thinking of upgrading to a new camera and I am looking at the K-70. I have the K-200D and I really like it's build quality.

K-01 Mode Dial problem

Hi Mono, I see that members have used all sorts of adhesives to put on the dial, I know I have new superglue so I will most likely use that. I was lucky that the dial came off back in the hotel room, my wife and I were in Columbus, Ohio and we were out at various sites all through the day.

The dial came off my K-01 yesterday, luckily it came off in the hotel room and not when I was out using the camera. After three years of owning this camera, this is the only problem I've had with it. Time to get out the superglue.

What was the first digital camera you owned?
Posted By Rick in Ohio
Replies: 119

My first digital camera was a Fuji Finepix S-5100 superzoom. 4 megapixels, F1:2.8-1:3.1 5.7-57 mm lens (38-380 mm I believe), and uses xD memory cards. It still works like new, has nice build quality but only goes up to iso 400. It has a very little rear screen and early generation electronic view finder. My wife has a newer Fuji superzoom and there is no comparision between the two camera build quality wise, the S-5100 is much better built.

Mike, It would be interesting if Eric could use that new gear you bought, to fix the ZX cameras. Let the group know if your repair work.

I thought that Eric had stopped working on the ZX series cameras. They were not listed on his home page the last time I looked there.

The K-s2 is really close in size to the K-r and the K-x, a little heavier then both.
