Thread: Newbie Pentaxian =D

    Default Newbie Pentaxian =D

    Hihi everyone, so happy to finally get a Pentax KX after much comparing =)
    Jus wanna check, is it alright for me to use MF mode instead of AF mode?
    Im totally new in DSLR but i find that i like to use the MF mode more than the AF mode.
    I jus bought the KX dual kit 50-200mm last night form Manly.....
    Hope to learn more from everyone here.....
    Still halfway reading through the User manual, though some stuffs like
    shutter speed, exposure, ISO, aperture, i still cant actually fully understand....
    Will hope to hear more from everyone here with experiences
    Thanks muchly

    simple camera basic manual controls must learn first.. later u can learn about what are the specific features the kx has as differ to other models/brands..

    those basics can be found everywhere online.. nowadays got video explanations.. even better

    For the charger, wats the difference between Sanyo quick 2hr charger, 6hrs charger or 14hrs charger? Which is better for longer lasting charge?

    Used to get at S$15 for 4XAA Eneloops. But too troublesome. So recently found one shop in SLS selling at S$20 for 4xAA (no charger as I already have a charger). IS this cheap? I dunno. To me quite cheap maybe not the cheapest.

    i don't know where to get cheap eneloops.

    quick chargers will heat up your batteries a lot more than a slow charger, so if you're not in a hurry then it will be better to get a variable charger that can switch between quick and slow charge. MAHA powerex would offer a lot of these, so it's probably a good choice.

    charging up your batteries properly will ensure that they last longer and have a good life everytime you charge them up.

    I've tried to order with them before. Delivery is not free, minimum order is 5 sets of 4xAA, and the $15 per set is not inclusive of GST.
    I don't subsidize marketing campaigns.

    I bought some Sanyo Imedions via ebay. You might want to search there.
