So as an engagment prezzie Ruth bought me a new Digital SLR Camera. I chose the Pentax K100d Super. I have always been a pentax boy and so i wanred to stick with them plus i wanted to be able to use the lens off my old 35mm SF7.
Its cool having a camera again and even more so it being an SLR. So its not a compact camera but Ruth has a decent compact anyway so this is gonna be used for some good stuff. – For the first few months i’ll probably bring it everywhere anyway.
Over day one i have been playing with it lots and figuring it all out. I think i hvae most of it cracked. The only thing i was never too hot on was metering correctly but its something to learn and enjot. I did that typical thing of going out to the garden and taking photos of plants to test it. I guess its the colour range that most people find in their gardens which is why people do this alot.
Saying that the oist couple of pics taken were of Ruth. Even with flash this is such a huge step above compact. The tonal range that an slr gets is far superior. Playing with aperature and depth of feild is also ace. I am a happy boy.
