Pentax K10D, 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SMC Pentax-DA AL
As we packed to leave for Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill I considered which film camera I should take along. I still have 43 of them to choose from (full list here). It’s often hard to choose, and it was especially so this time for some reason.
I decided not to dither, and instead packed my digital Pentax K10D DSLR with its 18-55mm zoom.
The K10D was introduced in 2006, and the DSLR state of the art has advanced considerably since then. My wife’s six-year-newer Nikon D3200 can get some photos my K10D can’t, primarily in dim light. A couple of my dim-light shots would have been wonderful had they been less noisy and had I been able to choose a higher ISO for a faster shutter speed and less risk of shake.
But the vast majority of photos I make with the K10D are in good light, where the camera performs perfectly well. I love the warmth it captures.
