that my be a bad thing to include about yourself. They may think: "why give this guy a camera? he'll probably just buy it on his own anyway and submit it to the pentax photo gallery."

I'm not a Pentax user, but I'm curious to see if Ira gets lucky. LOL. Good luck Ira!

I got a response:

Dear Mr. Crummy,

Thank you for your email. It is always great to hear from Pentaxian's
like yourself. We appreciate you offering to possibly test our new
PENTAX DSLR's in very cold climates. We are not looking at any new
sponsorship opportunities at this time but appreciate you contacting us
with your idea.

Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Yours truly,

Christine Otani
Marketing Coordinator
Imaging Division
Pentax Canada Inc.

Yes, they spelled my name wrong.

Ah well, it was worth a try. Hope you have fun with the K10 in your current cold darkness.

I missed this post the first time Ira, so I only saw it now. Too bad they didn't take you up on the offer, but it was worth a try!

Well, here is what I am getting with the K10 and the kit lens. The HDR is actually very close to the way it looked, but I do feel it is a little overdone.
