Another SEQ newbie

Postby Big Red on Mon Dec 19, 2005 1:01 am

G'day, my name is shane gerrish but most people know me as Big Red.
Oneputt has convinced me that this is a great forum to belong to so here i am 8)

I use a Pentax *istDs with an assortment of lenses none of which are very expensive apart from a Tamron 90 Macro and a Pentax DA 12-24.
most others were bought secondhand fairly cheaply but that is one of the good points of the Pentax... the ability to use very old good quality lenses.

I bought the Ds on new years eve 2004 so have had it nearly a year and it has about 12,000 shots up all of which are JPEGS but have decided to switch to RAW on the anniversary and start to learn that.

I live at Jacobs Well and work all over the Gold Coast.
I'll take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Xmas.
