Pentax Camera Accessories – The Expensive Joy of Brand Loyalty

Last April, after months of researching and stressing over whether or not I should (or could), I finally bit the bullet and spent $1300 on a nice 24Mpx Pentax K-3 DSLR. This is a super camera that I really have been enjoying and getting some high quality photos with. Most of all I like the standard ability you get with any DSLR of a fully manual photograph, something you just don’t get with a snapshot like my old Fujifilm A820. Sure the good snapshot cameras come with that little pseudo-manual exposure mode where you set one or two preferred manual settings and the rest remain automatic, but a nice DSLR will give you the ability to adjust everything about both exposure AND focus.

Well! For the first time in 3 years, we’ve dewcided to do something of a Christmas! Today, we committed ourselves by going and cutting a tree from the National Forest people. We had a grand time chaining the tires and making Andrea drive with them. I would have had a really cute photo of Andrea but right as I pressed the ‘take picture’ button, the batteries died. What I should do is get a car battery or gel-cell and step it down to three volts for all of my thee-volt appliances.

Anyway, so the tree’s up, but we have NOT gone and decorated it yet as we are going to church. Something to look forward to for tomorrow I suppose.

Photo: the deer right out our back fence. Of course it’s a phone photo, so it’s not the best quality, nor is it properly cropped.
