Pentax K-50 Photography Blog: Pentax K-50 White Large (3)

Hi everybody! Firstly, let me introduce myself. My name's Emma and I'm an Editorial Assistant here at ePz.

Before I started working here I had very little real photography knowledge, and although I've picked up bits and bobs here and there, I would by no means consider myself an expert. 

Pentax has kindly given me a Pentax K-50 DSLR to play with over the next few months, and I'm going to create a weekly article about using the camera and its features, and my progress in photography. It'll be a learning journey for me, and will also enable me to review the camera along the way, from the perspective of a beginner. 

So, why the K-50? Well, having used advanced compacts before and got to grips with manual settings a little, I felt the next logical step would be to move to a DSLR and see how I get on. The K-50 is marketed as Pentax's entry level DSLR, so should be pretty easy to find my way around. 

Having received the camera and had a play around, my first impressions are quite good. The camera feels solid and well built, and fits nicely in the hand. It's quite compact for a DSLR, and controls seem well placed for ease of operation. 

I can't wait to get out there and try my skills out, while hopefully learning some new ones along the way. make sure you visit PENTAXPORTAL next week to see my first impressions on using the camera!
