The K-1 has re-invigorated my photography a little, and that alone was worth the price of admission. I used to love to hike and see what nature has to offer... then I got a littler older, and lazy, and maybe a little negative or off put by rapid advance in tech.


It is easy to tell yourself that everything has been done before, and probably done better than I will do it, and with better equipment, so why bother? That is like a form of depression I guess. We have to remind ourselves it's about living through the process, the experience and pride of ownership so to speak. Now, I look forward to doing those kinds of things again and seeing what the K-1 and I can do together.


I'm not saying only a K-1 can do this. It just happened to motivated me (prolly to justify the expense, heh) There is more to photography than the equipment. There is something about the process itself as well. Weather it is stalking wildlife to capture a moment that no one else saw, or using equipment like plate film camera with ground glass to pre-vision a scene. Live view reminds me a little of that process, and the tilt screen makes it easier on my neck. Darkroom work was rewarding in that way, watching a print come to life in a tray of developer. If you have never done it, there is nothing like it! (well, maybe a polaroid) I don't miss sitting in the dark breathing chemicals though...


I guess what I am trying to say, is I am grateful for those that I can share with and enjoy my pics and theirs, and for having the equipment and motivation to go out and capture an image again.
Thanks PentaxForums & Ricoh!
Well said!...... and the K1 has certainly enhanced my joy and enthusiasm immensely too. It is such a wonderful camera!

Most everyone here is a more skilled and serious shooter than me...but no one has more fun with their K1 than I do! .......well, maybe LeRolls, but I have more squirrels than he has girls....I think?

Well put, Eric! I'm grateful in the same way. Hope to see some more of your shots. Beautiful day today; alas I was mostly confined to quarters

I understand correctly, the squirrel in the first image is thought to be a male, correct?

I can't make a hands on personal verification, but I think yours is a safe assumption. Either that or the worst case of hemorrhoids I have ever seen?
