Newbie to DSLR from Manchester !


Link Posted 04/04/2012 - 17:48
Just joined the forum as many years back I used to be an "old" film SLR user and have now decided to try and get on board with the DSLR fraternity.

Still have the original 3 x K mount Pentax/Vivitar Series 1 lens from the '80s and I am looking to source an 'inexpensive' K10D body to experiment with both RAW DSLR and HDR images.

My main reason for choosing the K10D is that I am on a tight budget and this model has the best AEB range that I can afford - needed for my experiments with HDR.

Looking forward to getting back in the saddle and trying many new things once I have a new body !!

Any advice or suggestions are more than welcome - many thanks.
