We'd like to remind everyone that next Saturday, February 4th, 2012 is World Pentax Day.

During this event, we'd like to invite you to go out and shoot, as a large part of the community will do the same.  Then, you'll be able to share photos from your part of the world in a collective gallery, and create a snapshot of the world through the "eyes" of Pentax cameras.

So, mark your calendars and go out and shoot next Saturday!  Note: all World Pentax Day photos must be taken on the 4th in your time zone.  Photos from any other day can't go in the gallery!
