Dear Sirs: what shall analog photographers do? I see no instructions for those that still use film and will use film as long as film exists

I can digitalize my film photos very easily, but the corresponding files contain no exif information.

I will participate with my beloved 67 II and ME super (almost 30 years old, of hard work, and still running perfectly)
best regards

Oh, the Irony!

I'm going to Japan on Feb.3 and was planning to visit the Pentax Forum on those days. I hope I can make great photos of Tokyo since I will not be able to play with all the stuff in the store!

I live in Tokyo and go there quite often. I could take some snaps of the forum if you like.

That would be a great WPD idea! Wonder why they call it "forum", though...

The original latin meaning of "forum" is simply a public space.

True, but it rarely makes it into common speech these days = terrible marketing idea

Maybe in countries far from Rome The Pentax Forum is located in Tokyo ...
E.g., the word "forum" isn't uncommon in Germany and many associate the word forum with Roman Forum more than an internet forum

Forum means "gathering space" and so even in the US -> L.A. Forum

Not a whole lot in there. A bit difficult to find. 10 min walk from shinjyuku station on chu-o line. I think it is on the west side of the station. Somewhat obscured from the street because it sits half a floor lower than the ground level. About 800 sq ft, far left is a gallery, to the right is the repair windows, and the last time I was there they had all DSLR models including 645d were displayed. They also have some lenses at moderate discounts, and some goofy accessories that you may not find in US.

Not sure how they like it if one is to go in there to take photos . . .

BTW, very interesting architecture in that area.
