Go out and SHOOT!

Got hyped by the new camera, PENTAX KX, and my urge to buy it is getting stronger and stronger. So I decided to take my current camera, Pentax K10D, to some photo ops to convince myself that it's more than enough for my needs. It's one way of loosing my interest to the new camera..

I was perfectly happy with it until I tried to shoot during my friend's daughter birthday party. It was so dark that I had to shoot ISO 1000-1600. I also had the same experience during my brother's wedding.

Those frustrations led me to put my camera gear on sale, which somehow I regret it. After seeing some of my shots during those events, I could say I survived in the sense that I did have a set of good shots. I still love my camera and I am pretty sure I haven't outgrown it. Maybe am just tempted to buy the new camera simply because of the great deal I might get with it. On the other hand, a good quality lens paired with my current camera will definitely help me with my next event shoot. I really should start saving now!

In the end, am not 100% sure to sell my camera, heck not even 70%. It's still on sale but will only be till December 10. Let's just see where I'll end up! :D


  1. Not to worry. What ever happens, you'll still have something to capture your images with. The K-x is nice and does have great noise performance. But that is waht is in technology. I gave one of my K10D's, grip, Pentax 16-45 and Tamron 70-300 to my 14 year old daughter and she loves it. Anyway, good luck with your decision.

  2. Wow, is there for real.. it's you Ben!
