I decided it was about time to upgrade my camera. I have been using a point and shoot type but I do own an old skool SLR Pentax. I haven't been able to use it in recent years because the lining inside the camera has rotted but the lenses are still fine. So when I was trying to decide what type to go for I stuck with Pentax as I know the old lenses will it the new camera.
You can imagine how excited I was when I found out you can choose the colour of the camera too, there are something like 64 combo's you pick the body - mine is obviously pink and then the grip colour which is actually chocolate. LOVE it.
I have been putting it through it's paces, there are a lot more bells and whistles so it's been a steep learning curve!
This is the local hoikuen - which is a kindy for working parents, it's a beautiful building and very light and airy inside.
Then we had a poke around at the prefectural activity centre - which sounds more exciting than it is. I'm not sure why there is a mermaid in the middle of there!
Of course, I have got one handsome model at my disposal, he looks so grown up in this picture, where did my lickle baby go?
I'm pretty much in love with the new camera. I need to get off the auto mode and do a refresher on using the SLR side of things, expect more photos!
And if you want the same camera it's a Pentax K-50 - I went through Amazon and on the Japanese site there was an option to pick colours.
