For the past two and a half year, I have funded my blogsite by writing books about the great Pentax DSLR cameras. I now publish the books as downloadable e-books (PDF files). You can print the books on your own printers or just read the e-books on your computer screens. This has allowed a cheaper price and immediate delivery after the PayPal payments. Pentax current available cameras are the K-7 and the K-x. The K-7 e-book has been available for a while right on this blog, toward the top right corner of the main page. The K-x will be available in the next few days. We also have e-books for the K20D, K10D and the K100D ,if Santa gives you a slightly used DSLR.
***If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Pentax K-x book" as subject, I will email you the minute the book becomes available.***

Hi Pentaxian friends.
This has been a good year for Pentax and they got to be one of Santa's preferred supplier with the K-x. The K-7 is also on the Christmas list of many people, but that's only for the people that have been extra good all year.
The K-x, with its excellent 12MP CMOS sensor, great Image Quality and a price at around $600.00 is the best deal for the people wanting to upgrade from Point & Shoot cameras. It can still be an Auto-everything camera like a Point & Shoot, but the IQ is so much better and the Video capability of the K-x makes it an even better deal. It's a DSLR that is so helpful for entry-level photographer, as you can gradually learn how to control the camera settings and eventually use it to its full potential by adjusting the controls (Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO) yourself.
Don't believe in Santa? Well, believe in your spouse and let them read this blog.
There are still some good gadgets that can be very helpful for your photographic endeavors. There's still time to purchase them and have them shipped overnight. Here's a list of my preferred gadgets.
* Delkin Fat Gecko Camera mount
* Litepanels MicroPro
A handy accessory that I've found more and more uses for lately, especially when it comes to shooting video with a DSLR, are the Litepanels lighting fixtures. Using a grid-like pattern of soft LED (light emitting diode) lights, Litepanels attach to the top of your camera via a cold shoe mount and are powered by either regular AA or Lithium Ion AA cells. There are two versions, the smaller Litepanels Micro which uses five batteries, or the larger MicroPro that takes six batteries.
* New Portrait Professional 9
This software package will make your portraits shots editing so much easier. I purchase this software and my close-up portraits of people can be turned into glamorous shots in minutes.
There are so many more interesting gadgets, but listed above are the gadgets I purchased for myself and like.
Best Regards and Merry Christmas.
