hi , this is a formal intoduction to me , My name is Dirk i sm a enthousiatic hobby photographer who owns several DSLR's yet and still
"havent found what i a ma looking for "to speak with a song of U2.

Da Gear (dslr only)
Canon Eos 300 D
Nikon D50
Nikon D80
Sony A100

and soon a pentax K10D

The reason's for having so many is that until now i havent found the perfect brand and at the moment i am fine the way it is

i won't say that the pentax k10D will be the last buy but 5 should do it 8)
i am a pretty weird guy but some say that i am nice too

officialy i started with film at the age of 6 i am now 40 years older , but self i sya it started in 2007 when i bought my first dslr a nikon d70 wich i learnt a great feal from .

in 2009 i discouvered that 6.1mp was nice but i needed more mp to keep a acceptable image after cropping that is why the D70 had to be sold and i bought the D80

this camera is still a favorit but the sony a100 has some features niokon hasn't got and even so the famous D50 has some things a nikon D80 can't do (d50 has a far better high iso less noise )

One of the reasons for buying a second hand like new pentax K10d is that i am a mod on the pentax series in camera and lenses at photocamel .

i also like the weight (on paper then) i am going to get it with 2 lenses a 18-55 pentax lense and soligor uv filter and hood and lenscover and back lens cover and a sigma 55-200 with also a soligor uv and hood and front and back lens covers , a charger, a hahnel lion battery and a bag and software, manuals for just 300 euro

so that was my itro now the welcome's .. :D
