Understanding the Pentax K10D
When I got into digital photography I opted to invest in Pentax because of the quality/price performance of their lenses. That and the fact you could use any K-mount or screw mount (with adapter) lens ever made. To me it was a no-brainer. So I started with a Pentax *ist DL and have loved the camera from day one.
I recently upgraded to the K10D for the larger sensor size, image stabilization, and the PRIME graphics engine that provides the ability to shoot continuously in jpg mode.
In this past year my only gripe with either DL or K10D (and the AF540GZ flash) is with the user manuals. They are not written very well nor in enough detail. The flash manuals are outdated since they don’t include any information on the K10D and there are several errors I have encountered in the manuals. As a result I see many Pentax owners online asking the same questions and complaining that the manuals are confusing.
I searched online for any help I could find and what help I found was scattered in forums and not logically ordered. I ended up with only a few book marks scattered all over the internet.
Another of my hobbies is Unix/Linux and my operating system of choice is FreeBSD. One thing I like about searching for FreeBSD help online is I found the majority of the information I was looking for at one or two websites.
I decided since I have pillaged many a website for information over my lifetime that is was time I gave a little something back. So here it is, a single website repository full of information about the Pentax K10D.
Please leave comments on how I can make the blog better. If you have any questions just ask and I will try to answer, or some other kind reader may answer.
