My wonderful husband convinced me that it was time for me to get a new camera. I sold my dSLR a few years ago because I was frustrated by being left handed and my right hand not physically being the best. I loved using an SLR. I love fast lenses for around our (pretty dark) house and fast shutters for catching dog antics. Plus I’ve been known to be artsy here and there.
Originally I purchased a Fujifilm XF1 which is a great compact camera. I’ve had it a week and decided that it isn’t for me. I have a Canon S90 which is a nice little pocket camera and find I don’t use it much because I always have my phone on me to use when I need to snap a quick pic. As good as the XF1 is, I’m returning it. I just don’t need it.
Browsing different camera sites the Pentax K-30 caught my eye. Good specs, good reviews, reasonable price. Since I sold all my Canon gear I wasn’t ‘locked into’ buying a certain system. I decided it was the one for me. I’ve had it less than 24 hours and I love it already. I’m still learning the new menus and buttons but I’m very happy with it.
Now I’ll be taking even more pictures of the dogs. As you can see, Woofgang is already thrilled with that idea. LOL
