Nikon D3100 DSLR – starting out


just bought one today, my treat to me,  still unpacking, charging battery and getting ready to take baby steps with it.

It is an awkward time to be buying , a new digital camera with the new kids on the block,  CMOS sized sensored mirrorless interchangeable cameras just getting onto the market blurring the line between point and shoot and dslr….

a camera out of the old film slr tradition with some size and an actual viewfinder which is what I used in my film days, had the strongest attraction for me.

I did a lot of research and paid attention to Ken Rockwell and to dpreview.com

some  first shots today:

new camera purchased recently, Pentax DSLR, K10D, lens a k mount SMC Pentax 50mm f1.4 manual lens

one of the attractions of the Pentax DSLR cameras is the ability to use older Pentax lenses in Aperture Priority mode.  That old glass lives again.
