As much as I enjoy working with my ‘pro-gear’, there are times when lugging the backpack with lenses, tripod, filters etc is just not feasible. So I got Pentax SV. It’s technically a 5 megapixel, but I can boost the size to 10 megapixels without sacrificing photo quality.
Read the manual (yes, I actually do read the manual) and got some helpful hints from Jean, my neighbor, who has the earlier version of this camera. After familiarising myself with the workings, I tried it out. It’s nice. :) Definitely worth keeping and using on a regular basis. The Super Macro feature alone makes it worthwhile.
