He is currently assigned to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, and he has learned that no matter the paycheck source or his location, he is a serial adventurer by make.

He started pursuing photography in 2010 when he purchased his first DSLR. After much deliberation in search of a camera that would keep up with his lifestyle, it was the K-7 that bested the competition. He's been a loyal Pentaxian ever since, made infamous by that video where he drenched his cameras in sand and water in Afghanistan.

Photographically, he struggles to restrict himself to a certain niche, however he has a particular affinity for portraiture, landscapes, and photojournalism both as a traveler and soldier. His imagery and compilation of photo essays can be viewed at his website,

I am very tempted by the Epson R2880 printer rebate when I buy my K-3...anyone know this printer well? The searched opinions say it is good, but ink-pricey.

I think you mean "...pretty outrageous".!! Why are flashes so high???

BillR [Delete] Oct 16th, 2013 4:58PM

Great feature of the Pentax Forum. Thanks.

gerbilbox [Delete] Oct 16th, 2013 9:40AM

I'm contemplating a return to Pentax and SLRs, and I think the K-50 deal just accelerated it. Thanks!

Pablom [Delete] Oct 16th, 2013 6:03AM

Didn't the 40 ltd used to cost $200?

The pricing of the new flashes is...pretty ambitious, to put it mildly :-P
