Great to see this on a rainy winter's morning in England and to dream of getting out there. Long live Pentax!

I can relate to a lot of the sentiments expressed in the film. "Bad weather makes good pictures" Thanks for highlighting this video.

Great vids. Just wondering what kind of filter system he is using on the dfa 15-30?

I was quite surprised to find Bill Ward is such a keen photographer. He's quite a familiar face on British televsion, having starred in a couple of our long-running soaps - most recently, "Emmerdale", where he played one of the main characters for several years. He's a local lad, too - he was born and raised in my region, and that castle and coastal area he's shooting isn't far from me.

That's a great promotional video... nicely shot, well presented by Bill, and it describes some of the many strengths of Pentax equipment. Very nice!

Thanks for posting this...

Looks little like NiSi, quite small for what it is.

That was nice! What a difference in tone and presentation from so much of this kind of video. His voice and speech pattern accords very well with how I feel about Pentax.

Excellent video! I wonder if he has any more videos? Its great that he is a well know person ambassadoring for Pentax. More of this stuff needs to be out here where others can see it too.

Interesting to watch, especially on a day like today. Also watching the snow falling outside.

A very smart man, who buys gear based on what it does for his art and not fashion or fad. Just how I feel about Pentax. Way to go!

My 15 year old *ist D still looks great, in spite of having 100,000 miles on it. My former mother-in-law's semi-pro Canon of similar vintage, with light use by a grandma, looks like it's been beaten up, and parts are falling off her lenses.


Cheers,
Cameron
