To take this thread even further into tangential territory, when I was 13, maybe 14, I wanted nothing more than a REAL camera. Being the child of a single mother living on survivors benefits, the budget didn't exactly give much. I got an automatic 35mm with relatively high iso capabilities for the camera that it was.

What brand was it?

I'm sure it was some Kodak or Fujifilm model, from either Wal-Mart or K-mart. I remember being happy that it was better than the 110 camera I did have & disappointed that it wasn't what I wanted. I was excited to be able to use iso 400 & 800 films. And I had that camera for probably 8 or 9 years.

The camera that replaced it was an APS Kodak. Anyone remember those? That was bought for myself on the broke newlywed/new parents budget. Ie no budget at all. I think it was the cheapest non-instant camera Wal-Mart in my town carried.

Nope! I've had my k-x since Christmas 2009. Now, I have the k-5ii, which is WAY more camera than I know how to use!

Now there is a mount that you don't see very often...Ricoh EE. I don't know that I have ever run across one. How did they manage the Tv auto-exposure with the M42 mount?

That's right! You can choose not to buy a K-3 and be perfectly happy!

Ricoh has always been a small player in the camera market. That doesn't matter much (if you get what you want few care about company size)
I still think it's a bit late for any big push (5-7 years ago the time has now passed esp with the industry in decline)


Pentax will carry on no doubt, but I think if we're honest they have no chance v the top 2 makers, and are unlikely to even manage no. 3 spot

I thought it was more specific than that... a cheese/coffee thread!

Now where is that photo of one of the Beatles taking a picture of Jack LaLanne pulling a cheese barge up the Seine with a cup of Folger's on his head? (That Beatle would have to be Ringo, the only one to buy a Ricoh!)


...

Speaking of which, I made up a new (alcoholic) drink tonight entirely by accident. Don't ask me how, but I was mixing up a Manhattan when I poured Creme de Cassis (a blackcurrant liqueur) over my bourbon (Maker's) instead of vermouth. Not one to waste the bourbon, I added the vermouth and bitters and tried it out. Surprisingly nice, with more of a bite than a regular Mahattan. I'll call it "The Manhattan of France" (since cassis is in our house solely to make kirs), but after a few sips I had to turn the tumbler around to see if there was an unwanted label on the back of the glass...

Top that, beverage folks!

Well, there was a waffle bunny and a breaded cat back a ways. That extends it beyond cheese/coffee.

That made me wonder if there are non-human PF members. (and what kind of non-humans would they be?)
I always thought Otis was a member. But now that I think of it, he's never been reported to like blue cheese and he's never ranted about FF. I must have been mistaken.
