Lowest price of the year in the US
By PF Staff in Deals and Savings on Jul 25, 2017
Pentax's latest DSLR, the powerful yet compact KP, has just gone on sale in the US at a very attractive price of about $949. The sale price is set at $150 below the launch price from earlier this year, and well over $100 off the average street price since launch. We currently do not know if or when this deal will expire.

Winner of the May, 2017 "Bridges" photo contest
By PF Staff in Photo Contests on Jul 9, 2017
First of all thanks to everyone who nominated and voted for my photo in May 2017's "Bridges" contest. This image was taken on 29 October 2013 in Nevestino, Bulgaria.
Let me begin with a little history: Kadin Bridge (Bride’s Bridge) is an impressive architectural monument in the centre of Nevestino, Bulgaria. This is a medieval 100-meter long bridge built over the river Struma and has five circle vaults, the highest of which is in the middle. The name of the bridge “Kadin” or “of a bride” is connected to the legends concerning its building.
