Like the tittle suggest, what is you greatest photographic achievement of 2009.
I know the year isn't over yet but I'm sure that some already know.

My biggest would be... ... ...
Let's say I'm still waiting for that

Any real difference between APS-C, I've heard you numerous times that the difference isn't that much, at least I believe it was you.

I'm thinking of going getting my skills and knowledge up to such a level next year that I can start a studio... If the rumours about the 645D are true then I must say that I'm very tempted to get one.

Not me Anvh. I try not to get too involved in that side of the discussions.

I will say here though that having both systems, they compliment each other. My Pentax kit does 90%+ of what I shoot. The FF does the other 10% or so.

Does that mean I can qualify as a Pentaxikon?

Buying my K-x and taking the first photos with it

It gave me a heck of a thrill seeing the quality of the picture that I got .

Pentaxikon sounds like an interesting word.
All systems and brands have so their merits so little point discussing that since they are all good in a way.

I'm still thinking of an answer, I've done little things with photography this year although I'm planning a photography trip to Morocco in May 2010.

Angela, that sure is a great feeling, have you notice some improvement in your shots already by experience?

When I look back at my first shots they don't look so good but the shots 3 to 4 months later are visibly better.

seeing the face of the model when I showed her my advert banner.

I was so so touched I ended up giving her it, and ordering two more

so now I'm with out a banner to advertise over Christmas but I believe she is going to display it in her local pub for a day or two so all is not lost

Ps she cried with enjoyment

Stefan ,

Oh yes - I've now no problems with camera shake and though I need to work on composition I can see improvement . I'm willing to have a go at any time now and not think , ' that's not going to work'.

Once this spell of weather is over, I'll take it into Town and get some of the pics that were not successful with the Kodak and then I'll be able to compare the successful Kodak ones with the K-x ones - which should be interesting .

Using my Voodoo skills to bring a dead (well, completely jammed up) Super Ikonta IV back to life and doing such a good job that it's now my go-to film camera (and I'm slowly drowning in bills for 120 film d&p)

Finding a near-mint original production CZJ Werra (less than 1,000 made) with matching green ERC (far rarer than hen's teeth), strap and accessories at a car boot sale - then haggling the price down to 3!!!

Buying the DA35 Limited for the K10D. I think it's now welded itself permanently to the front of the camera and I can't remember how I got by without it...

Wonderful story James keep up the good work

Angela, would be interesting to see the comparison.
I just see you also got your flash, now you only need to have a prime as well and your settled

Hefty, seems you have a good and lucky photographic year behind you

I need a telephoto for the stuff I enjoy taking most It will come before the summer , but I can't cope with anything really heavy and unwieldy and I don't want to be carrying a tripod around - for me weight is a problem .

Angela we had already discuss that somewhere.
If I recall correctly, you already found the DA50-200 on the heavy side but that's really the smallest/lightest you can get.

You're right - it was as heavy as I could go I suspect .
